Welcome to Year 6!
Hello, My name is Miss Mulla and I will be teaching in Year 6 this year.
We are very fortunate to also have Mrs Ashurst and Mrs Austin supporting our learning too!
As the top class, everyone looks up to Year 6, which is why we expect extremely high standards of behaviour and achievement. In Year 6 we always try to do our best at everything. We work hard but the reward is we have a lot of fun too!
Homework will be given out to the children on a Tuesday. This will usually consist of:
All homework should be completed and handed in by the following Monday. If your child encounters any difficulty with their homework/spellings, please encourage them to speak to either myself or Mrs Ashurst as soon as possible. Alternatively, please drop a note in their Reading record book.
We have set high expectations for the children to read at home. We expect the children to read every night for at least 10 minutes. A minimum of 1 hour over the week. We ask for a parent/guardian's signature by Friday to show this.
Our P.E. sessions will take place on a Monday afternoon and Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure that P.E kits are in school on Monday and clearly labelled for these sessions.
The dates of the SAT week for academic year 2016-2017 are Monday 8th May to Thursday 11th May. Please ensure that no holidays are booked for this period as it is important that all children undertake the tests. The preparation for these tests begins almost immediately and we can assure you that they will be given the best guidance possible in their chase to attain the best scores possible. However, the children will not be put under too much pressure and will be able to access the other areas of the curriculum as expected. From January onwards, children will be given the opportunity to attend booster classes and it would be appreciated if parents would encourage their children to do so. More information about the administration of the tests will be provided nearer the time.
Our topic this half term is: A Child's War.
The children will be learning about the lives of child evacuees during World War 2, rationing, radio broadcasts, significant individuals during the war...and will be reading Goodnight Mr Tom as our class novel.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to come in and speak to me as soon as you can, or leave a note in your child's homework diary. For a more formal appointment, please contact the school office. Thank you!
We are looking forward to a fun, happy and successful year!
