Welcome to Year 6Mc! I hope you have had a wonderful summer break and you are feeling refreshed and ready to start the new year. Year 6 can be a daunting prospect for some children, but we try to make it as fun and rewarding as possible, whilst working hard to achieve our targets.
I look forward to working with you and your child throughout the year, in order to support them and their learning. If you have any questions about Year 6, the curriculum, or general enquiries, please don't hesitate to contact school to make an appointment.
Children are asked to bring their reading book and diary to school on a daily basis as this will enable me to provide a comment to inform parents when children
have taken part in Guided Reading sessions. Reading diaries are also to be used by the children to record what they have read and for parents/carers to provide feedback, or make comments, on the reading they have done with their child.
We will send spellings, English and Maths homework out every Friday to be returned to school the following Wednesday. Please encourage your children to complete their homework every week as well as reading each night (approx. 20-30mins.) These are excellent habits to prepare children for high school and a key part in consolidating their learning. Revising times tables will also help your child with key elements of Maths. If your child is finding homework a challenge please come into school so we can discuss it together.
P.E. sessions will take place every Tuesday, this term the children will be learning hockey and netball. Please ensure a full P.E. kit is brought to school and that items are clearly labelled. Swimming will take place every Wednesday, please ensure your child has their swimming kit, including a hat.
A quick reminder -if your child has a medical condition that staff need to know about, please inform school as soon as possible. If your child requires an inhaler, or any other medication, please make sure it has been returned to school, and is not out of date.
If you have updated your phone, or recently moved, please update your contact details at the school office as soon as possible.
