WELCOME TO YEAR 6

In Year 6, Mrs Law is the class teacher, supported by Mrs Smitheram, Miss Scaife and Miss Pedley. Children in Year 6 are expected to become more independent as the year progresses to prepare them for secondary school. We expect excellent focus and effort in our class, whilst still enjoying our learning.

 

In this Year group, each child has the opportunity to become a prefect, which helps them to learn about responsibility and to gain leadership skills. Our Year 6 pupils have the important responsibility of contributing towards the smooth running of our academy; we really value their efforts and mature attitude towards this. We also promote the importance of teamwork, which is evident within our classroom.

 

In Year 6, outdoor learning takes place on Friday afternoons and PE is on Thursday afternoons. Please ensure full PE kits are in school every week. Homework is issued on Fridays and is due in on Wednesdays. Homework club is available every Tuesday lunchtime should your child need assistance with completing this.

 

Reading should be enjoyed daily – every child is expected to read their target number of pages, either independently or to an adult. They should then write how much they have read in their home-school-link book, which should be initialled daily by an adult at home. Pupils are also expected to learn their spellings and times tables each week.

Our topics for this term will be: 'A Voyage of Discovery' and 'Who's the Mummy?'

 

As always, if you have any questions, please make an appointment to see Mrs Law, or make contact via the home-school link book or telephone.
