Welcome to Year 6
My name is Miss Walsh and I am the Year 6 class teacher.
Miss Austin is our amazing learning support and Mrs Hall teaches Year 6 every Monday afternoon and Thursday all day.
We have such an exciting year ahead and we can't wait to see your children grow and achieve so much! If you have any worries, concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school office and I will be in contact at the earliest possible opportunity.
The Year 6 team.
Homework is set on Mondays and handed in the following Monday. Dojo points are awarded for completing homework early. Homework will be set through homework books or online via Purple Mash/MyMaths. Every week the homework set will be English and Maths activities relating to recent class work. There will be occasional Science or other foundation subject homework set. If your child encounters any difficulty with their homework/spellings, please encourage them to speak to either myself or Miss Austin as soon as possible.
In regards to reading, we set high expectations for all Year 6 pupils.
We encourage them to read at least 4 times a week (a minimum of 1 hour over the week). Please sign your child's reading record at home. Each child also has a new reading challenge book that is kept in school and read daily.
Spellings will be set on Fridays and tested the following Friday.
Your child will find their weekly spellings on this class page.
Please encourage your child to practise their spellings at home.
Our outdoor PE lesson will take place on a Thursday morning and our indoor PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday afternoon.
