Welcome to Year 6
Class teacher: Mrs N Whitby Class teacher: Mr P Nugent
Teaching Assistant: Mrs C Miller Teaching Assistant: Mrs L Angus
We ask children to read at home at least three times a week. As they are now Year 6, we expect them to record comments themselves in their reading diary, sharing some of the things they have learned about the book. The children independently change books when needed. We ask that all reading diaries are brought to school every day as they will be regularly checked by the class teacher.
Homework: Year 6 homework is set and sent home on a Friday. This needs to be completed and handed in on the following Wednesday. If children struggle with the work at home, they may come to ‘Catch-Up’ club on a Monday or Tuesday lunchtime, where they can get support. The homework consists of weekly spellings made up from the common exception words from the national curriculum and some words that are frequently misspelled. Children will also have an English or Maths task.
P.E: Year 6 have P.E sessions on a Wednesday morning. This is taught by qualified sports coaches each week. We ask that P.E kits are left in school for the term as there are times when we may have an additional P.E session or a change to the timetabling of the P.E session. PE kits will be sent home for washing at the end of each short term.
Contacting your child’s teacher: If you feel you need to talk to your child’s teacher please come to the classroom door at the end of the day where we will try to accommodate you. If this is not possible, we will arrange a time to meet you. Alternatively, please contact the office to make an appointment.
