Ms Kilpatrick (Monday-Friday)


Welcome back to a new school year. I hope that you had a wonderful summer and that everyone is ready for our new school year. I am excited to be teaching year six again and look forward to all the exciting things that we have planned this year – year six really is the best year!


Our value this term is friendship and community. In Term 2, our value is respect. I am the main class teacher and I will be teaching the class daily. During my planning time, we are lucky to have Mrs Callahan teaching the class, who will be teaching PE, PSHE and Science. For the majority of the time, she will teach the class every other Monday. We are also lucky to have Ms Kilpatrick (Ms K) joining us as our teaching assistant all week.


In Year 6 this term, much of our learning will be based on the theme of a history of childhood – an exciting history-based topic with lots of cross-curricular learning opportunities that explores childhood experiences from the Victorian times to and throughout World War II. I am excited to say that we already have a trip booked to the Black Country Living Museum which classes at Marcham have visited previously and have really enjoyed. The children will be able to really experience what life would have been like for children living during this time period.


 A summary of learning in other curriculum areas is set out in the curriculum web below.


Our PE days are on Monday and Thursday. Children will come home in their PE kits on Thursday so that they can be washed. Please make sure that PE kits are in school wherever possible in case they are needed. Earrings and other jewellery must be removed (or taped over) so that children can participate safely. Homework is set on Friday and due in the following Thursday. This will consist of a mixture of Reading, Spelling and Maths activities as well as some topic related tasks. All home learning tasks will enable your child to consolidate their learning and revise different topics so will be closely linked to the learning in the classroom. Please encourage your child to complete their home learning and let me know if there is anything I can help with. As with last year, most reading homework will be based on the books from Rising Stars; please let me know if you are having difficulties accessing this website as it has been known to cause trouble! We also ask that you continue to encourage your child to meet the ‘Ten Minutes a Day’ reading pledge. Children will bring home a reading record where they can make a note of their reading each night. I hope that this overview answers any questions that you might have.

However, if there are any aspects relating to teaching and learning in Year 6 that you would like to discuss further or if there are issues that crop up which you would like to talk about, please do get in touch.


Emails can be directed to the school office and the office staff will forward them on to me.
