Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to the depths of Africa where, amidst the giraffe, drongos and cape buffalo, you will find Mr Bews and Mrs Goldstein. Mr Bews teaches Madagascar and also has a real passion for sports, making him perfect for the role of PE Coordinator. He also runs School Council. Mrs Goldstein teaches Kenya and is Upper Key Stage Leader. She loves all things mathematical and is excited for what lies ahead as she has taken on the role of Maths Coordinator this year. Keep your eyes peeled for whole school challenges very soon… In year 6 we have already had a fantastic start to the year with the children fully engrossed in the year 6 curriculum. We know that it is a very important year with so many things happening: our SATS, a trip to Kilvrough and finally, moving to secondary school. That’s why our learning skills are so important to us. It will take a lot of self-motivation and resilience to name but two, but we are confident that our children will leave equipped with the skills for secondary school and beyond and that Stephen Freeman learning skills will skills for life. We have already studied Mexico and the First World War as part of our topic work thus far. This has included a wonderful Mexican Fiesta and exploration of some authentic WW1 sources. Thank you to the grown ups who came and took part in our fiesta. It was also fantastic to meet so many of you during the Parents’ Evening sessions last month. We have learnt the stories of Godmother Death and Christmas Football already and after Christmas, we are excited to be transporting ourselves into the future as our new topic will be Tomorrow’s World. We look forward to telling you all a fabulous new story to add to your repertoires in January.
