A Warm Welcome to Year 6
Hello, I'm Miss Mulla and the Year 6 class teacher here at St Paul's.
In my spare time, I love to read, paint, and go on long walks.
Mrs Hunt is our teaching assistant and will be supporting our learning journey!
We also have Mrs Redman who will supporting us in preparation for SATs.
As the top class, everyone looks up to Year 6, which is why we expect 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 just as much fun too!
Homework will be given out on a Tuesday. This will consist of:
All homework should be completed and handed in by Monday.
If your child encounters any difficulty with their homework/spellings, please encourage them to speak to either myself or Mrs Hunt as soon as possible. Alternatively, please drop a note in their reading record book.
We set high expectations for Year 6 children to read at home.
We encourage them 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 each week to show this.
Our P.E. sessions will take place on a Thursday afternoon.
Please ensure that P.E kits are in school and are clearly labelled.
The dates of the SAT week for academic year 2017-2018 are Monday 14th May to Thursday 17th 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.
A Child's War
Our Topic for the Spring Term is Hola Mexico
Year 6 will be exploring this unique country, from its towering temples and stunning geography to its pulsing rhythms and fun-packed festivals. We will discover the mysterious world of the ancient Maya civilisation, make their own chocolate, learn their poetry and follow their curious rituals.
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 look forward to a fun, happy and successful year ahead!
