Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 staff:
Ms C Hadland: Class Teacher
Mrs D Muddimer: Teaching Assistant/ELSA
As each pupil progresses through school-life growing demands are placed upon them along that journey. This year will require a greater degree of independence, responsibility, organisation and perseverance as the expectations for Year 6 continue to grow. Year 6 bridges the gap between Primary School and Secondary School. As pupils progress, thrive and mature there is greater emphasis to demonstrate initiative, motivation and self-awareness. Let the journey begin!
Homework will routinely include: the basics of weekly spellings and how to use words correctly in context, clarifying word definitions, as well as manipulating words with prefixes and suffixes; times-tables - practising any remaining unknown times tables, and reading regularly to improve comprehension and vocabulary banks to be used in writing. Frequent practising throughout the week is better than one longer session the day before it is due to be handed in! Other homework will include using a range of CGP books to address required skills.
Homework will usually be given on a Monday and will need to be handed in by the following Monday. This allows for pupils who are busy on weekdays to also have the weekend to complete tasks, and pupils who have hectic weekends have the 5 weekdays. This accommodates all eventualities.
PE will usually be on a Monday afternoon with me – and then again on a Thursday afternoon with Mr Clarke; Gymnastics for Spring Term. Please make sure a full PE kit comes in to school on Monday and remains in school until Friday as there are times when additional, unexpected, sporting events are arranged at short notice - it would be a shame if your child missed out.
Additional learning sessions after school; English (Ms Hadland) and Maths (Mr Smyton), are continuing in the Spring Term; to reinforce basic learning skills for all Year 6 pupils. We expect to see all Y6 pupils there! 😊
