This term, Year 6 will be consolidating their RESPECT curriculum work on Nancy Wake and Amelia Earhart. In the final half term, they will be looking at Ibn Battuta as well as local historical heroes from the Newton Heath area. Children will undertake survival missions in which they will have the opportunity to display and develop all values of the RESPECT curriculum, particularly teamwork, resilience, communication and self-awareness.
Homework is given out each Thursday and is due back the following Tuesday. This routine is especially important for preparing the children for high school expectations.
PE is every Thursday with a City in the Community specialised coach. Children should be reminded to bring their kits and trainers in each week.
During the summer term, the pupils will be attending their in-take days at their chosen secondary school. Correspondence from the high school will give you all the information you need about dropping children off, picking them up and what they should bring on the day or days. Please let Briscoe admin team know of any dates that your child will be at an in-take day.
On 11-13th July, Year 6 pupils will be going to Todmorden for their Robin Wood residential holiday. Consent letters, kit lists and more information will follow shortly.
