Year 6

 

                                   Welcome to Year 6 

                            

                                                                            

 

                          Class Teachers:     Mrs Fisher (Monday to Wednesday)  

                                                       Mrs Askill (Thursday and Friday)  

                             Teaching Assistant:   Mrs Brown

 

Welcome to Year 6 where we will help your children to become more self-reliant, mature and take more responsibility for their learning and progress. It is an important year when the children undertake various roles and responsibilities throughout the school.

 

We hope the children will really enjoy their final year at St George's.

                   

  

              

Our class Saint is: 

St. Maximilian Kolbe

 

Maximilian Maria Kolbe was a Polish Catholic priest and Conventual Franciscan friar who volunteered to die in place of a man named Franciszek Gajowniczek in the German death camp of Auschwitz, located in German-occupied Poland during World War II.

Some famous quotations of our class Saint include:

'For Jesus Christ I am prepared to suffer still more.'

'A single act of love makes the soul return to life.'

'The Cross is the school of love.'

'If angels could be jealous of men, they would be so for one reason: Holy Communion.'

Receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation

During Year 6, children prepare to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. This year it was celebrated at Worcester Cathedral on the evening of Wednesday 29th November. The children prepared for the Sacrament at home, in class and in the parish.

During Religious Education lessons in school, the children study the Holy Spirit in detail.  They look at the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit and think about how these will work in their future lives. The Children study the events of Pentecost and think about how they will be like the disciples when the Holy Spirit comes down upon them.  As Confirmation is a Sacrament of initiation, the children explore how Baptism and Confirmation are linked, focussing in particular at the signs and symbols used in both.

As part of their work, children prepare a project on the saint of their choice.  They are encouraged to select the name of a saint who has inspired them in some way.  A sponsor is also chosen and has the role of supporting the child in their spiritual life.

Alongside their lessons in school, the children attend Mass with their families and pray at home as a family.  The children are encouraged to read Bible stories together and discuss their Religious Education lessons.  

In addition to this, the children are asked to attend confirmation classes held in the parish.

The day itself was a great celebration with children, parents, clergy, staff and members of the parish.

100 Recommended Year 6 Books

The Year 6 Curriculum overview can be found under the 'Curriculum tab' on the school website.

Learning about life as WWII evacuees: queuing at the station; travelling on the train from Winchcombe to Broadway and some fire fighting activities were a few of the experiences we enjoyed.

We hope Year 6 are looking forward to studying WWII this Autumn.
