Year 6

 

 

Welcome to Year 6: Miss Gleaves, Mrs Parkes, Miss Jones and Mr Nugent.

 

Summer Term

 

A big well done for all of your hard work with your SATs! We are all really proud of you.

 

General Information:

 

The school day starts at 8.55 am. 

 

Children need to bring their reading book and homework diary to school each day. 

 

A school hot dinner costs £9.00 per week. Money is payable on a Monday morning, and should be brought to school in a envelope clearly marked with the child's name, class and amount of money it contains. 

 

Toast is available to buy on Mondays and Wednesdays at a cost of 10p. 

 

Colomendy money can be paid every Friday morning, please ensure you send your child's payment card along with any money.

 

P.E. day is Monday, the children will need full P.E. Kits for this lesson. If you could write your child's name on the kit, that would be a great help. 

 

Homework:

 

Children are expected to read every night with an adult and get their reading records signed. It is important to discuss the text with your child to help develop skills of comprehension. You could discuss the plot, characters feelings, motives, choice of vocabulary and make predictions about what may happen next. 

 

Spellings are given on a Monday and need to be practised each night before the test on the following Monday.

 

My maths homework will be set during the week. 

 

Often maths homework given for over the weekend will be Past SAT's questions to help children prepare for the tests in May 2015.

There will also be a piece of grammar/punctuation homework set for over the weekend. 

 

There will also be various homework projects throughout the year linking to topics covered over the year.
