Welcome to Year 6's Class Page
Class Teacher: Mrs Edwards
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Whittle
In Year 6 we have a thirst for new knowledge and love to perfect our skills. We have high expectations of our own behaviour and attitudes and enjoy being positive role models to the rest of the school. Year 6 is fun-filled and action-packed - in and outside the classroom. We all take on extra roles and responsibilities in school, which we are democratically elected for. These additional roles support our wellbeing and personal development, linking to our curriculum driver: ‘Possibilities’.
Things we need every day:
· Reading book and planner
· Water bottle
· Pumps or trainers for PESSPA (these can remain in school in our locker)
The main PESSPA session is on Wednesday - PE kits need to be worn on this day.
On Mondays children get their new spellings for the week. Part of their homework is to learn them throughout the week ready for a spelling test on Friday. Written spelling/handwriting homework is also set on Fridays and this needs to be brought back by the following Thursday. Maths homework will be set weekly on Times Tables Rockstars or Purple Mash (please contact Mrs Edwards for login details).
Everyone has their own reading day, so it is especially important that reading books and planners are brought into school on this day. Mrs Edwards can be contacted on Class Dojo if anyone needs to know their reading day.
As part of the homework, pupils are expected to read at least four times per week at home. In Year 6, children can read independently if they are confident readers. We just ask that an adult signs their planner so that the teachers can see that reading is taking place. Children can work towards their bronze, silver and gold badges in our Reading Championship. The more they read, the more points they earn!
