Welcome to Year 6
The children have settled in really quickly and have been working really hard already. We have all been so impressed with how well they have adjusted to school life and the changes within school.
Sadly, Mrs Stafford won’t be in school with us for a few weeks. She fell off a scooter and broke her coccyx. Luckily, Miss Ji already knows the children so she will be covering Mrs Stafford until she returns. Mrs Kirley will continue to teach on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (AM). Mrs Lloyd and Mr Smith will be in class throughout the week.
Please remember to bring a water bottle to school every day. The bottle must contain water and not squash.
PE will be taking place on Monday and Thursday afternoons. Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school; this must include shoes that are suitable for running around in.

Even if your child is a Free Reader, reading to an adult at home is vital for their development. Please ensure your child reads daily. All children will be awarded free books for reading at home.
Spellings are really important! We will continue to hold our test on a Friday. Please support your child by encouraging them to practice regularly.
