WELCOME TO THE YEAR 6 CLASS PAGE!

We are very excited to be working with this year group and meeting you all as the year progresses. We would emphasise that the education of your child is very much a team effort and what you do at home will add incredible value to what we are able to do at school.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries or concerns, or wish to share good news about your child, whether that be in his or her experiences at school or endeavours outside.
Here is some general information about Year 6:
PE will take place on Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Please ensure that your children come in their PE kit on these days so that they are ready for the lesson.
Please ensure that your child comes to school with a full water bottle (for the sake of the environment, a reusable one rather than a single use plastic bottle).
Homework will be given out each week on a Friday and is to be returned on the following Wednesday.
Spelling tests will be conducted weekly and word lists will be given to children in good time before each test. Please ensure that you take every opportunity to practise spellings with your child as the ability to spell is a key component of your child’s writing skills.
Reading records have been given to every child for checking and review. We ask that a family member reads with your child 5 times during the week.
Children require their own pencil case, which should remain in school and include a pencil, pen, ruler, glue stick and purple pen.
The children will have the opportunity to visit the library each week to choose an appropriate book. We would encourage children to return books as soon as they have been finished and to be mindful that other children may want to read the same book, and book numbers are limited.
Times tables are an integral part of mathematics and form the foundation of mental arithmetic. We would therefore urge you to practise with your children and encourage them to use the online resource, TT Rockstars, for which they have the login details.
