Welcome to our Year 6 class page.
Miss Lake will be your class teacher and Miss Hussain will be in class every day to support us with our learning.
Our class entrance is on the KS1 playground. You will see Miss Lake or Miss Hussain at the door. If you ever need to speak to us or want to have a chat about your child’s learning, just say hello in the morning! If you need a longer conversation with one of us, just let us know and we can arrange a time. 🙂
We have a P.E lesson on Wednesday and on a Thursday, so your child will need to come to school in their P.E kit. They need to wear:
- a white top
- black shorts or black jogging pants
- plain trainers
- a black jumper or jacket
I give the children homework each week. They receive their homework on a Friday and they have until the following Friday to return it. If they need any help with their homework, they can bring it in earlier and I can support them with their learning. I set three pieces each week and if they do not return it, they have to miss some of their playtime on Friday. This may sound mean, but I want to help the children prepare for their move to secondary school.
We do spellings on a two week cycle. They will have two weeks to learn the meanings and spellings of each word and then will be tested on a Friday morning. In class, we also complete mini spelling activities to revise spelling patterns and rules!
You will need to apply for your child’s secondary school place soon, if you have any questions, please let us know. The deadline is the 31st of October.
