In Year 6, we have P.E. on a Tuesday afternoon (PE) and on a Thursday morning (Swimming).
Children can come into school wearing their P.E. kit on Tuesday.
Please make sure they are wearing:
- A plain red t-shirt
- Plain black shorts, plain black joggers or plain leggings
- Black trainers
Skorts are not suitable as they can get caught on the apparatus during gym lessons.
Football kits and joggers with large logos or stripes are not allowed.
Hoodies are not allowed.
The normal school sweatshirt can be worn over the red t-shirt.
If you do not have the full correct kit for your child please send them to school in normal uniform and their P.E.clothes in a bag to change into before the lesson. They will not be allowed to spend all day in school in the incorrect kit.
Year 6 will be going swimming every Thursday morning. This will be from Thursday 3rd March until Thursday 23rd June (excluding Thursday 5th May and Thursday 12th May due to a local election day and SATs).
The pool is at the University of Birmingham and we will be using a private bus for transport. We will leave school at 9am prompt, and the lessons are from 9.30 until 10.15am. It is crucial that the children arrive at 8.45am so that the register can be taken before we leave.
Children will need above-the-knee trunks (boys) or swimming costume (girls). Bikinis are not suitable for learning to swim. A towel and a waterproof bag are also required. Earrings should be removed and long hair tied back.
The National Curriculum says: by the end of Key Stage 2 children should be able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres. Swimming is the only statutory PE activity on the curriculum, as it is the only sport that can save your life. You cannot withdraw your child from swimming lessons.
If there are any issues that you wish to discuss about these lessons, or appropriate swimwear, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

The children in Year 6 learnt about Edvard Munch, a Norwegian born, expressionist painter, and printer. The children created many forms of different artwork in the style of Munch for the topic on volcanoes.
