WELCOME TO YEAR 6

Year 6 - Meet The Teacher

Welcome back year 6, we hope you had a great summer holiday and that you are excited about all of the super activities we will be doing in the autumn term.

 

Reading

Reading books are sent home weekly and in addition eBooks are available online at Collins Big Cat - please read with your child every day and ensure their reading planner is in school every day so that staff may check the planner.  

 

PE 

PE will be on Thursday afternoon.  Children should come in to school wearing their PE kit please.  All earrings to be removed  for PE and long hair must be tied back.

 

Homework

Homework is set each Friday and is due back on the following Wednesday.  In line with school policy each activity should take the following amount of time:-

Reading 15 minutes daily

Spelling 15 minutes weekly (tested the following Thursday)

English 25+ minutes weekly

Maths 25+ minutes weekly 

If your child is struggling to complete their homework in this time, please speak to your class teacher.  Over school holidays your child may be asked to complete a project linked to work which they have been doing in class.

 

Remember, your child should also spend some time everyday on:-

Numbots & TTRS

Collins Big Cat

Nessy (if you have a login) for 20 minutes

 

Cracking Times Tables

Cracking Times Tables are tested weekly with a three-minute test.  Results are given to the children and if a level is passed a certificate will be sent home.  Please note we do not send home completed sheets. 

 

Important Reminders

  • Children must bring their planners in daily and try to read at home every evening
  • All dinner money and school trips should now be paid through Parent Pay
  • We do ask that on Mufti days children still wear school shoes. No boots or strappy sandals
