Welcome to Succeed Class - Year 6
"Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." (Winston Churchill)
Welcome to Year 6 - Succeed Class. We have 28 children in Succeed class this year - a mixture of Year 5 and Year 6, all striving to achieve their own personal goals. I, Miss Fleming, am the Year 6 teacher and alongside myself will be Ms Brown as our class' Teaching Assistant. We will be joined in the afternoon by Miss Milner and we all share the same goal - to guide, to support, to learn, to laugh and to ensure that memories are made. We are looking forward to the exciting, and hard-working, journey ahead!
Now that the children are in Year 6, they will have many responsibilities around the school such as: leading by example as school role models to the younger children; taking the lead with School Council; participating as senior members of the GIFT Team; supporting younger children in reception with key reading skills; demonstrating sound knowledge of Internet Safety as members of the Internet Warriors; assisting within whole school assemblies; and representing the school at the various sporting competitions that we will be participating in throughout the year. It is sure to be a busy year!
We have an action packed year of learning planned for the children, beginning with an exciting journey into the Nowhere Emporium! Here, we aim to provide the children with an exciting and engaging start to their year which aims to build and expand upon the previous years' learning, whilst incorporating current year objectives. We will then move onto explore WW2 turning points in British History; discovering our local environments through our 'Coasts' topic in Geography; finding out about the ancient civilisation of Baghdad; learning how important Greek History was to our own language and society; discovering the history of evolution through science and exploring the dangers and delights of the Amazon. All of this, as well as preparing for our SAT's and the not-to-be-missed end of year musical production, which is always a highlight in the children's calendar!
Your child's well-being is of vital importance to us and we want to ensure that they are happy and progressing. If you ever have any queries, questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via my staff email: email@example.com

REMOTE LEARNING AT OLSA
Below you will find 2 remote learning plans. Plan A relates to work that is being carried out in class. This is the work we would like you to complete if your bubble is isolating or you are isolating because someone you have been near has tested positive for coronavirus.
Option B should only be completed in emergencies when you do not have access to the internet.
In the event of a whole bubble closure or a further lockdown, your child's Teams meetings will be at the following times:
9:15 am - Numeracy session
11:00 am - Literacy session
2pm - feedback and story time
Please can all children log on no earlier than 5 minutes before the scheduled lesson time and be punctual. This is to prevent a delay to the lesson. All sessions are recorded and children can use the links below on the Plan A to follow the activities should there be connection issues.
Work from 1st March 2021
Please follow the timetable for Remote Learning Plan A. Here you will see the hourly activities that the children are required to complete and, which sessions require evidence of the learning to be sent to myself (indicated through highlighting). Children will also be reminded in the Teams sessions of what work is required to be sent.
Please make sure you send work at least twice a week to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to receive feedback.
For maths, year 6 will remain on Teams with myself and Year 5 will complete their Teams meeting with Miss Milner/Mrs Davies. A separate Teams notification will be on Teams for them with the title, 'Numeracy Year 5.'
From this week, all maths activities will be completed in their Maths No Problem workbook. Please ensure that this book is presented neatly as it will be returned to school following lockdown. All working out should be in their lockdown exercise book and any corrections to their work made in red pen. The answer sheets are contained in the additional resources - please use these to mark the work after each session.
Please note, on Tuesday morning at 8:10 am, Coach Tom from FUNDA will provide a fun Wake and Shake session via teams. It would be fantastic if children were able to participate in the session as it will provide them with an opportunity to be energised before their day of learning.
In addition, the Teams session on Friday 2pm will be an assembly with Mrs Rainey.
Remember to keep reading 20 minutes daily. If you get 100% on the accelerated reading quiz, you could be in for a prize! Do not forget to look on Oak Academy Virtual Library to hear from real authors.
I appreciate your continued support through such unprecedented times.
