Year 6

Year six staff want to thank the children for their amazing attitude to their SATs preparation and, even though they won’t sit the papers, we couldn’t be prouder of the their hard working ethos.

Our year six team miss the children and all our thoughts and prayers are with the families who form our school community. We hope you are enjoying family time and the lovely weather of late, but realise the break in routine and current circumstances may cause anxiety. There is a wealth of resources to support mental health on our school website in the parent’s section plus coronavirus stories in the year 6 area to support your child’s understanding of the virus.

There are many activities posted weekly to help you learn at home until we can return safely to school plus useful websites that can be accessed at any time. These can be found in the year 6 section of the website. Also follow your interests by carrying out other activities such as creative writing, art projects or baking. We’d love to see some of your projects (send to office@stmatthewsce.bradford.sch.uk with a note stating it is for the attention of year 6 teachers)

Each year six teacher has written you a little note to tell you what we’ve been getting up to.

Hello Year 6 pupils. It seems so long since I last saw you all and I am missing you terribly. I really enjoy speaking to your parents on the telephone and hearing about what you are all doing during lock down. So, I thought I’d tell you a bit about what I have been doing. At home, we have had a much needed clear out. Every cupboard, draw and wardrobe has been attacked! It fells good to declutter. The garden has had similar treatment. We have pruned, dug and cut the grass and are very satisfied with the results. Every day we get out for some exercise. Some days, we take our dog Willow for a long family walk in the countryside neighbouring our home. She loves to roam in the fields and we get huge satisfaction from taking in the fresh air and incredible views. Three times a week, I go for a run with my daughter Jemima. I can’t say that I enjoy it but I am grateful for the exercise and hope it will prevent me piling on weight during lock down.

I hope that you are all exercising regularly and staying safe and well.

Hello year 6! 

I hope everybody is staying safe at home. I have been keeping myself busy by reading and exercising regularly. I have been on a few long walks remembering to maintain a distance from people I pass along the way. 

I have also been speaking to my friends and family via video chat and taking part in some quizzes and card games. 

Be careful and keep smiling!

Hi year 6!

Hope you are all doing well! I’m really missing all of you and I just wanted to say that, even though you’re not sitting your SATS, I’m incredibly proud of the hard work that all of you put in (especially my little Maths Booster group who dragged themselves out of bed extra early in the morning!) I bet you’re all having a bit of a lie in now. Ha ha!  Anyways, I’ve been keeping myself busy with all sorts including walking, cooking, baking with my sister and just enjoying much needed family time. Please stay safe and take care of yourselves.

Hi year 6,

Hope you are all staying safe, doing your daily school work and not missing your school mates too much!

I am keeping busy in my garden. I have planted lots of fruit and vegetable seeds - at the moment my courgettes are growing the fastest! (See picture)

I have also read about 15 books and started knitting - much to my cats enjoyment!

See you soon 

Mrs Watson

Hello year 6!

I am missing you all but am keeping busy with my two children. My one-year-old loves messy play with spaghetti, cereal and jelly (I like cleaning up after her less!) My son is enjoying extra scooter and trampoline time. Each day we have been going on a long walk and have enjoyed seeing lots of new baby lambs in the fields. We saw some children had painted some stones and left them for people to look at as they take their daily exercise. This gave us inspiration to do some of our own. Keep safe and remember to wash your hands!
