ONLY SEND YOUR CHILDREN INTO SCHOOL IF YOU ARE WORKING ON THAT DAY AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO ONE ELSE AT HOME WHO COULD LOOK AFTER YOUR CHILD.

WELCOME TO OUR YEAR 6 PAGE

 

Hello Year 6! Welcome to our very own page on the school website. We will regularly update this page with all the exciting things that are going on within our year group.

 

We would like to thank all children for starting the term, enthusiastic and ready to learn. The children all look very smart in their uniform and black shoes. Please keep it up.

 

Mrs Walker and Miss Jeffs are the year 6 teachers

Supporting the year group is our teaching assistant - Miss Horton.

 

Home Learning. 

 

All of year 6 were sent home last week with a 'home learning pack' (thank you to those parents who came to collect before the school closures), this folder contained a wide range of activities and resources to ensure they all continue to build upon their learning. Please see below a breakdown of what was in the packs and links to further learning opportunities at this time: 

 

  • SPaG: CGP 10 minute test books, SAT SPaG tests - all of theses can be used to reinforce the key concepts that have been taught so far this year. 
  • Maths: Various packs of mental arithmetic and reasoning questions, all of this is based on what has been covered so far. 

Other resources: Exercise book (to record any writing or topic work you may complete), Sketch book (to keep those creative minds turning). 

  • Reading: CGP comprehension book (either poetry, non fiction or fiction), all children were sent home with two books to read.
