Welcome to the Year 6 Class page.
Welcome to the Summer Term - your last term as a primary school pupil! What fun we shall have; what a lot we have planned!
This term, we shall be working very hard to enable us all to continue making progress in all of our work, to complete the SATs tests and to prepare for your transition to secondary school - how exciting!
Remember that there are lots of adults who will be helping you to do your very best throughout the year.
- Miss Dunkley - class teacher
- Miss Dwyer - teaching assistant
- Mr Allack - teaching assistant (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday)
- Mr Beetles - teaching assistant (Monday and Friday)
- Mrs Howes - PE teaching assistant
For information about our Daily Routine and learning Timetable, please see the links to the right.
During this short half term, we shall also be working extra hard to prepare for our SATs tests and we shall learn how to charge our wellbeing batteries and those of others. We also have other activities to look forward to, such as the Race for Life!
Here are a few things for you all to remember to help you to be a responsible and well-prepared learner in Year 6:
Our whole class novel this half term is Wonder by R.J Palacio, which is the brutally powerful story about a boy named August Pullman who has a facial anomaly. He is an ordinary child who plays his Xbox and is obsessed with Star Wars. However, despite the 27 operations he has had on his face, he will never look normal. We shall culminate the reading of this book with an analysis of the film adaptation. It is really helpful (and makes the reading experience more pleasurable) if you have your own copy of the book to read along with us.
PE days are on Thursday afternoons only this half term and we are currently asking you all to come to school wearing the correct PE kit on these days.
Home Learning will be primarily Google Classroom based. You are all expected to attempt to complete this homework each week, since it is brilliant preparation for when you will transfer to your secondary schools in September this year. Miss Dunkley will be holding Home Learning clubs during lunchtimes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays for those who are unable to complete their work at home. This will be time for you to work independently on your home learning.
Spellings will be learned and practiced during school time and a test will take place every week. It is wise to practice spellings (and times tables) at home too to help you to spell even better!
You are encouraged to bring your reading books to school every day. You spend at least 20 minutes per day reading for pleasure in school but you are encouraged to read at home too. This could be a range of material including comics and magazines, newspapers, non-fiction books, etc. Reading is such an important skill!
"The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go!" (Dr Seuss)
Please can I remind you all that pencil cases and other possessions from home must not be brought in to school at this time.
Thank you all for your support. We are really looking forward to continuing our fun-filled learning adventure this year!
Miss Dunkley, Miss Dwyer, Mr Allack and Mr Beetles
