There are thirty-one of us in Year 6 this year, and we are raring to go and ready to learn!
Mrs Mills, Mr Beckett, Miss Brown and Mrs Abraham support us in our learning every day as we work hard to do well in our last year at OLSA and prepare for our transition to high school.
Now we are in Year 6, we have lots of responsibilities around the school including leading the School Council; helping with different jobs; representing the school at different sporting events; taking on special roles during Mass and being Internet Warriors so that we can make more people aware about the importance of online safety.
As well as learning all kinds of information and skills, we have lots of fun too! We have already enjoyed our ‘Play in a Day’ linked to our first topic about World War Two. During the year, we will be finding out all about being entrepreneurs in our ‘Money Makers’ topic; explore the story of the Pendle Witches and the work of Shakespeare; investigate what life might be like for the inhabitants of the Amazon Rainforest; and discover the delights of the Arabian Nights stories and the history of early Islamic civilization. All this, as well as preparing for our SATs and our not-to-be-missed musical production!
There will be opportunities for our families to join us for assemblies and topic afternoons during the year. We look forward to showing you how we develop and progress as we work hard in our learning.
In Year 6, we have decided to describe our school as a safe, friendly place to be sociable; a respectful and supportive centre for learning and a place to flourish and develop our ‘big dreams’.
We hope you agree
