Welcome to Year 6
Year 6 teachers:
Ms Stockton, Miss Theobold and Miss Hughes
Homework is usually an extension or consolidation of work that has been done in class and in Year 6, it will become an increasingly valuable tool for revision and SATs preparation. Maths will be given out on a Tuesday and is due back in on Friday. Literacy will be given out on Friday and is due back in on a Tuesday. Please feel free to comment in your child’s reading record on how your child has found the homework task. In addition, a weekly spelling list and times tables where necessary, will be issued on Fridays, and tested on the following Friday.
It is essential that children bring their reading books to school each day. The Class Teacher/ Mrs Follows will listen to your child read within a guided reading session each week. Guided reading will be a taught session and will use a book of a higher level to provide more challenge. Children will also have the opportunity to change their individual reading books throughout the week. Please support your child by encouraging them to read on a daily basis, for a minimum of 20 minutes 5 times a week, and signing their Reading Record on a weekly basis.
Outdoor PE kit is required on a Friday.
Indoor PE kit should be in school at all times as this may be required for other purposes.
Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit.
All kit should be clearly named. Kits will be kept in school at all times and will be sent home at the end of each half term.
Jewellery is NOT permitted to be worn – including earrings!
