Welcome to Year 6's class page.
Welcome back, we hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas break and we hope that you are ready to continue on with a very important year in Year 6! We are very much looking forward to helping the children progress through and enjoy their final year here at St. Mary’s and we look forward to working together with the children and yourselves to achieve this. Along with myself and Mrs Flatman, in class we also have Mrs Giordani and Mrs Lockett to support the children - this will be in the way of small group and in-class support as well as specific interventions where needed.
Please see the attached Medium Term Plan to see what we are covering in lessons this half term.
Spellings will continue to be set on a Wednesday and will be expected to be returned to school the following Monday. Children will receive the following each week:-
In addition to this homework, it is important that children are practising their times tables as this really will enhance their learning in all areas of Maths. Please see information about Times Tables Rock Stars to help. Children are also encouraged to be revising grammatical terms and their use in writing as well as revising spelling patterns and rules. This is compulsory and will help your child progress in their learning.
We will listen to children read in class as part of a group through guided reading sessions. Please listen to your child read at home as much as possible, even if it just 10 minutes before bed. Please encourage your child to read widely at home as it will have a positive impact not only on their reading and comprehension skills but also their writing.
This term PE will mainly take place on a Monday but it may change so please can you ensure that children have their full PE kit in school at all times. It is important that children stay hydrated throughout the school day to help aid concentration so please make sure the children have a water bottle they can fill up throughout the day,
We will have an end of year school trip in Summer Term 2 to celebrate a fantastic year!
The following website will give you information regarding your child’s SATs assessments at the end of the year. It is very useful to look at so you can support your child through preparation for these.
We will hold a Parent’s Meeting for SATs in the Spring Term where I will share all the relevant information about their SATs this year. If you have any further questions with how best to support your child in the run up to SATs please do not hesitate to ask.
If you have any questions/queries please do not hesitate to contact us, we look forward to getting to know the children and supporting them through this important year.
