Dear Year 6

It is now our last week at school.  At the beginning of the year, I had a totally different idea about how our year would be together – regardless of how this year has turned out, you have been all been fantastic and shown great resilience in such a difficult time.  I look forward to hopefully seeing you all on Thursday at the Leaver’s assembly.  I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the weather will be kind to us, as it will be an outdoor event!  Mrs Kozyra will be there to say a final goodbye, to you and the school, as this will be her last day at Mobberley before she moves on to teach at Holmes Chapel Primary school in September.  I’m sure you will agree that we will miss her incredibly and have been so lucky as year 6 and Mobberley to have worked with her.  On Tuesday morning this week at 10am, there is an online Leaver’s Service from Astbury – we would have had a Leaver’s service there but due to the circumstances, this will now be held online.  If you are at school, we will login at school and if you are at home, I will send the joining details so you can login too if you wish.  We have been asked to have a jar/small box each, ready with the words of  1 Peter 5:7 on (Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you), paper and pens so we can join in with an interactive activity.  Please bring in a jar/small box with these words on, ready for Tuesday’s service – these can be taken home afterwards as they will only be used by you.  If you are still at home, Mrs Knowles has been getting a pack up ready for you with transition booklets and some little extras for you!  At school we will be completing the transition booklets too.  Below you will find links to the work we will be doing at home or in school.  Thank you again for all the requests you sent through for high school.  I have emailed Mr Acton at Knutsford Academy to pass on the information and also to let him know a little about you all.

Dear Year 6

We have now had one week back at school and you have all settled back in amazingly.  You are all working so hard in class and Mrs Anderton has told me how your Microsoft Teams lessons are going if you are still at home.  Keep up the good work!  You will see that Maths, English, Topic work and Art is on the class web page.  This week’s Maths is Percentages of amounts and Ratio. In English we will be continuing with our story ‘Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick’. In art we are continuing to explore emotions in art and this week we are focusing on Pablo Picasso.  This week, a transition booklet will be coming home to you so you can fill that in as we will be doing at school.  You may have received some information from your high schools about transitioning in September and I have been asked by the High Schools to give a detailed explanation of who your friends are and ideas for tutor groups.  If you have any requests, please send them to me and I will put them down on your forms for the high school.  I hope you have a great week at home or school.

Dear Year 6

Some of you will be returning to school this week with me and Mrs Knowles and some of you will remain at home.  If you are still at home, Mrs Anderton will now be the teacher you will contact if you have any questions.  Also if you have any work to put on the class instagram account, please forward it to Mrs Anderton’s email:    You will see that Maths, English and Topic work is available on the webpage.  Maths learning will now be powerpoint lessons, which I will be teaching in school too.  There are questions and answers within the powerpoints for Monday to Thursday’s lessons. Tuesday remains your arithmetic online session with Mrs Anderton and we will be doing arithmetic at school too.  The topic this week is focusing on environmental issues and the different types of pollutions.  I was shocked when I read about the different facts – I think you will be too.  This week’s art focuses on our new art topic ’emotions in art’ and this week we will be focusing on how Kandinsky achieved this in his artwork.  I look forward to seeing examples of your own work inspired by Kandinsky.  Have a great week and I will be back here at the end of this week to see how you have been and to put on next week’s work.  As Friday is deep cleaning at school and PPA, you will notice that your timetable goes from Monday to Thursday.  On Friday, if there is any topic, science, artwork or DT work you would like to complete, then please do.  I know Mr Stenson is working very hard to ensure we can get back together as a whole class before the end of term, so I look forward to that.
