Welcome to the Year 6 Class page.
What a fantastic beginning to Year 6. Everyone has settled in brilliantly and has coped admirably with the changes to school routine. In fact, our Year 6 pupils are really proving to be fantastic role models and have been responsible, thoughtful and hard working all week.
I would like to draw your attention to a few key things to keep in mind to help support your child at home and to ensure they are appropriately prepared for the weekly routine in Year 6.
PE days are Tuesday and Thursday and we are currently asking all our pupils to come to school wearing the correct PE kit.
Home Learning will start next week (Friday 18th September) and will be primarily Google Classroom based. Pupils are expected to attempt to complete this homework each week. This is brilliant preparation for when they will transfer to secondary school next year.
Pupils will keep their Learning Journals in school, unless they contain important information which needs to be shared with you at home.
We are beginning to work on the Year 5/6 spellings this half term. To ensure all pupils spend sufficient time learning these, we are using school time to learn the spellings which they will be tested on on a fortnightly basis: the first spelling test will take place on Thursday 17th September. Please support your child in learning these should they wish to do further practise at home.
Pupils in Y6 are being encouraged to leave their reading books in school. They spend at least 20 minutes per day reading for pleasure in school but please encourage your child to read at home. This could be a range of material including comics and magazines, newspapers, non-fiction books, etc. The current class novel is The House with Chicken Legs by Sophie Anderson.
If you give permission for your Y6 child to walk to and from school, please email email@example.com so that we can support them in this.
Pencil cases and other possessions from home must not be brought in to school.
Thank you all for your support. We are really looking forward to a fun-filled learning adventure in Year 6 this year!
