Staying Safer Online Powerpoint

During Internet Safety week, we went to Anfield where we learnt all about how to safe online. We completed workshops and made 'pledges' on the importance of being safe on the internet. We even appeared on BBC Breakfast!

We also had Mr Bradshaw come in to speak to us all about internet safety - we learnt many interesting things, real-life situations on the importance of being safe online and the consequences. Our key message was to 'THINK' when posting and sharing information.

Teaching Staff in Year 6

Mr Dade (Writing, PE and Upper Key Stage 2 Lead)

Mrs Taylor (Teaching Assistant)

Welcome back to the Final Half-Term at Banks Road.


First of all, the amazing effort and hard work towards the SATs by the children is a great testament of how far they have come. All we can say is very well done - the progress made this year has been fantastic.

In our final term, we will be completing a range of topics. In English, we will be studying ' Tuesday' which is a whole school book based on a frog invasion. Look out for details on the school website.

In Maths, there will be investigation based approach to problem solving skills. 

Our History topic is World War II. we will focus on the affect it had on Britain and in Europe. In the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, it is a very emotional and poignant subject but also a fascinating one.

Our end of year production is 'The Wiz.' It promises to be a brilliant performance and this will be a wonderful end to the year. The hard work starts now but will be worth it in the end!

PE will now take place on Tuesday morning and in addition there will be a Capoeira Brazilian street dance session  each Thursday.

For homework, Home-Topic books will continue and the children can research a topic of their choice to write about each week. There is a focus on writing and high quality presentation but also the more creative, the better! There is also targeted maths homework.

Thank you for all your support - as ever. 

Kind regards,

Mr Dade and the Year 6 Team.
