The Sacrament of Confirmation
Recently our Year 6 children were presented with their Confirmation resource packs. They will work through these at home as they prepare for this important sacrament. Please visit the Diocese of Leeds Website, where you will find a link to videos which introduce you to the leaflets and cards in the resource pack. There are also links to other material which you may like to download.
The date of Confirmation is still to be confirmed but we will let you know as soon as possible. There is no dress code, however children are expected to be dressed smartly.
If you have any questions, please ask myself, Mrs Moran or Mrs Holdsworth who will support the children on their faith journey in school.
Thank you for supporting your children as they make this next step on their faith journey.
Dear Year 6 parents and carers,
Welcome back to a new year at St Anthony's. Hopefully, you enjoyed the summer holidays and are well rested. We are very excited to welcome your children into Year 6 and are looking forward to a wonderful year ahead. In their final year with us, our children will work hard but still have time for lots of fun. They will be ambassadors for our school and shine as they lead by example.
This year, the children have a diary, as well as their reading record, to record important messages. However, below are some reminders to help you get organised for the year ahead.
Maths and English homework will be handed out every Monday and is to be returned completed on Friday. We will always mark homework together in class on Friday morning. Booster classes are available at dinnertime if your child needs some extra support with an aspect of their homework.
Spellings will be handed out on Thursday and there will be a spelling test the following week. It is important children spend time practicing these at home as it will allow them to choose vocabulary confidently when writing.
Children have log-ins to TTRockstars and using this to learn and consolidate their multiplication skills is a weekly expectation as part of their maths homework. 10 - 15 minutes three times a week is ample.
Home reading books have been given to all children this week. They must be in school everyday and the children change them once a week on a given day. Please make sure reading records, now part of their diary, are signed and returned to school each week (on your child's day). It is vital to ready daily with your child and discuss their books with them in order to ensure they continue to develop their inference and understanding.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please make sure PE kits are in school and are labelled with your child's name. Even in year 6 they get misplaced! PE kit and footwear should be in school at all times. This term we will be outside as much as possible and are learning skills in football and hockey.
Indoor kit: white t-shirt, navy shorts, socks and black pumps.
Outdoor kit: a plain navy tracksuit, white t-shirt, socks and trainers.
Please also ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day. It is still warm outside and it gets hot in the classroom. One with a sports lid is preferable to minimize the damage caused by spillages.
I look forward to getting to know you all and working together. If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact the office or speak to us before or after school.
The Year 6 Team
