Welcome to Year 6
Our teachers this year are: In Peter Pan Mrs. Greenfield and in Pinocchio Mr.Mansey.
Mrs Cooper, Mrs Holt, Mrs. Spencer and Mrs Barzinji will work across both classes., with the additional help of Mr. Gleeson, Mrs.Zesmin Ali and Mrs. Miah.
Year Six is a very exciting year with lots going on. Please keep up to date with everything that is happening in both classes on this page. or via Class Dojo.
Please don't hesitate to make an appointment to speak to your child's class teacher too if you have any questions.
This year we will be splitting the children into smaller, more focused groups for reading, writing and maths. Please come into school and speak to your child's teacher if you wish to find out more about their groups.
Homework is set on a weekly basis for Spellings and Number facts. The spellings and times tables are sent out via the apps and can be accessed at home. All children have log ins for both sites. These need to be completed at least daily, to ensure the children get the best opportunities to succeed.
Reading books were given out at the start of the year. Please try to read with your child every night. Encourage the children to read a wide range of books, any reading is better than no reading at all.
Reading books must be in school every day so that their progress can be monitored and their name moved up the class reading tree, the children may also need to read during the day.
Children have PE 6 times over the three week timetable. Please ensure that all children have sensible PE kit, including trainers in school on a Monday and that it is taken home on a Friday for washing. ALL PE WILL BE OUTDOORS FOR THE FIRST HALF TERM - PLEASE ENSURE CHILDREN HAVE ADEQUATE CLOTHING IN THEIR KIT. (THIS MUST INCLUDE TRAINERS AND A WARM JACKET).
If your child needs to self - isolate because of a family member having symptoms/testing positive for COVID 19 then they can access the daily work through the Seesaw app. or via class dojo.
All children will have an individual log in and will be fully able to access and submit work through both sites.
This year our projects will be changing as the year progresses, we will update this page or let you know via Class Dojo to keep you fully informed.
Our first project big question is ... Who am I?
Within this project we will be looking at how unique we all are, the different countries we all come from, as well as how our body works by looking at the function of the heart and our circulatory system. In Art we will be attempting to draw our self-portraits.
We have a very busy year ahead of us but we are sure that the children will be absolutely brilliant!
We are looking forward to learning lots of exciting things over the next year!
