Welcome to the Year 6 page.

Year 6 Routines

Reading – We are keen for all children to develop a love for reading and will be promoting this through our class reading sessions and encouraging the children to read at home as much as possible. The children can read books from home or school and should record in their diaries at least 3 times a week to show they have been reading. Whilst we respect that many Year 6 children read to themselves at home, we ask their parents do acknowledge this by signing their diary, which will be checked on a Monday by an adult. We have also introduced a ‘100 Book Challenge’; a list of 100 suggested books that they should read as many of as they can. If you would like a copy of the list please see Mrs Cass.

Spellings – Mrs Wilkinson will be taking over spellings for the year. Therefore, they will be sent home on a Friday and then tested the following Friday.

Homework – Homework books will be sent home on a Thursday and are due in the following Monday. All homework will have been covered in class, however if your child is still unsure how to complete it please encourage them to ask. Click here for Autumn Term 2 homework

PE – PE takes place each Wednesday with a sports coach and Thursday with the teacher. For PE children are expected to wear a white t-shirt, dark shorts and plimsolls when we are indoor, and tracksuit bottoms and trainers when outdoor. Please ensure that girls have long hair tied back and that they have spare socks in their bag for the days they are wearing tights!

Staffing – Mrs Cass teaches the class Monday to Thursday each week with Mrs Wilkinson teaching Friday morning. Mrs Jones is with the class every morning and Friday afternoons.
