6HB

Welcome to 6HB

Mrs Berry and Mrs Haslehurst work closely together in 6HB with Mrs Jones our teaching assistant. We have many years of experience in year 6 and hope our new class page gives you information to support you this year. We know many children can be anxious about the National Curriculum tests, so please do not hesitate to speak to us to ease your worries.

 

Reading Books

Please bring your reading books to school every day and record in your reading log. Reading 10 minutes every day can make a big difference to your learning. Try to read a range of genres including non-fiction. You should still try to read to an adult to practice your expression and build up your confidence.

 

Water bottles

Remember to bring water bottles (with a sports top) to school. Water is good for our brains.

 

Swimming

Year 6 are swimming every Wednesday in Autumn term 1, children need their swimming costume, towel, swimming hat for long hair and a comb. Children should not bring any deodorants with them please. Swimming is part of the National Curriculum and is an essential life skill.

Attendance

Attendance and punctuality is essential in Year 6. Lessons begin with mindfulness techniques at 9.00 am to get us focussed for the day and by 9.10 we have begun our first lesson on Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. Good attendance ensures we will not miss any important work and we will become more confident learners. Children who attend school regularly do achieve higher marks throughout their school career. Come on 6HB, let's try to get the highest attendance each day.

TRAVEL SAFETY TOUR

 

On Tuesday 29th November 6HB attended a wonderful visit with Merseytravel & Merseyrail.

The children left school by bus to Queens Square where they visited the Merseytravel CCTV room. There are 18 cameras on each bus for safety and a double decker bus weighs over 10 tonnes and is the same height as the liver birds on the liver building! Over 400 buses per hour drive through Queens Square. They discussed journey planning, crossing roads & reading timetables. They then visited Central Train Station where they learned about the safety, dangers and hazards at train stations. They discovered who they can ask for help, fines and the laws in relation to travelling by train.
The children embarked a bus and made their way to James Street station where they took a train to Hamilton Square. They had a fantastic opportunity to travel on the Mersey Ferry back to Liverpool to stop and rest for lunch at the Liverpool Museum.
Year 6, then continued their ventures and visited the Mersey Tunnel Tour. Here, they actually visited below the seabed, below the underground of the Birkenhead Tunnel. They discovered the air is extremely clean within the tunnel and discovered its history. They learned about pollution and protecting our environment and visited an emergency refuge, which would be similar to a modern day air raid shelter. This would be utilised in the event of an emergency within the tunnel.
 
The children had a fantastic day, utilising public transport around our City, receiving prizes for their understanding and knowledge gained from the day.

With thanks to all staff who helped support our children in this wonderful day and Billy Bradshaw and staff from Merseytravel and Merseyrail for providing this fantastic opportunity.
