Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!!

We hope you all had a restful and enjoyable summer break. We have got a very busy but fun term ahead of us!

Mrs Kirley and Mrs Stafford share the week. Mrs Kirley is in Monday – Wednesday (before break) and Mrs Stafford is in from after break on Wednesday until Friday. Our amazing LSA support this year is Mrs Roberts who will be in class Monday to Thursday. She will be covering year 2 on a Friday.

 

Please ensure your child is bringing a change of clothes and shoes for Athletes. PE kits should include trainers or daps, shorts and joggers and a t-shirt. PE is held outside so clothing should be appropriate for the weather. 

Meet the teacher – 15th September after school in your child’s classroom. 

Homework

Even if your child is a Free Reader, reading at home is vital for a child’s development. Please ensure your child reads daily.
Spellings are really important! We will continue to hold our test on a Friday. Please support your child by encouraging them to practice regularly. They can also use Spelling Shed — an online resource. Each child has access to this with a login and password that can be found at the front of their reading records.
