Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome to Year Six!
Mrs Twidle and Mrs Ashraf are extremely pleased to welcome you to our Year 6 class.
Every child is given a reading book from our reading scheme that is appropriate to their reading level. We change books routinely on Monday and a Thursday. We would like children to read 10 minutes each night and then make a comment in their reading record. As well as reading scheme books, we also have our fabulous ‘Golden Pin’ books. Our chosen authors are Anthony Horrowitz and Philip Pullman. If children can read 10 of these books during their time in Year 6 they will receive a very special Golden Pin!
As well as reading at home each day, the Year 6 children are given homework on a Friday and this is to be returned to school the following Tuesday. Homework set is always linked to work children have completed that week. Please ensure that it is completed in pencil and NOT pen. We take great pride in our work and the children love being rewarded for lovely presentation. As well as homework, Spellings are given out on a Monday and then children will be tested on a Friday morning. It is important that the children learn the spelling rule for that week.
Children also have access to Reading Plus or Lexia and Times Tables Rockstars. We would love it if your children can access these at home to help improve their reading and times tables. If they can’t remember their passwords please contact us, we are happy to send them home.
Please keep in touch…
If your child has achieved something outside of school we would love to hear about your child’s achievement. Children are encouraged to bring in photographs, medals, or anything of interest so that they can tell their classmates all about it!
After school clubs
Year Six after school clubs are currently, Multi-sports club on Wednesday after school. This club finishes promptly at 4:15pm.
P.E. is on a Wednesday afternoon and the children will require appropriate footwear in their PE bag at all times. The school will provide a PE kit for your child. If your child has their ears pierced they will need to be removed by your child, teachers cannot support your child with this. Can we ask for all uniform, including coats, shoes and outer clothing to be clearly named. This not only helps the children with their independence, but it is their responsibility to look after their own possessions.
