Welcome to Year 6
Our teachers this year are:
Captain Hook: Mr.Mansey
Tinkerbell: Mrs. Bellanti
Mrs. Barzinji, Mrs. Forshaw, Mrs. Wright and Mr. Coldman will also be supporting in both classes.
Year Six is a very exciting year with lots going on. Please keep up to date with everything that is happening in all classes on this page or via Class Dojo.
(If you don't have the code please speak to Mr. Mansey or Mrs. Bellanti who will be able to give you your child's individual code.).
Please don't hesitate to make an appointment to speak to your child's class teacher if you have any questions.
This year Mr. Mansey will be teaching Maths across both classes and Mrs. Bellanti will be teaching English across both classes.
Spelling Shed, TTRS and reading of their individual books should be completed daily. They will also be given an additional piece of SATs preparation activities. The spellings and times tables are sent out via the apps and should be accessed at home. All children have log ins for both sites. These need to be completed daily, to ensure the children get the best opportunities to succeed.

Reading books are changed at least weekly.
Please either read with your child or encourage them to read independently nightly for at least 20 minutes each time.
Please 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.
The children may also need to read to an adult during the day.
Children have PE twice a week. Please ensure that all children have the correct PE kit- which comprises of plain white T.Shirt, plain black leggings/joggers, plain black hoody/jacket and plain black trainers .
PE lessons are on Thursdays and Fridays each week. Children can only come into school in their PE kit on THURSDAY for Friday PE lessons, children must bring a PE kit to change into.
SOME PE WILL BE OUTDOORS - PLEASE ENSURE CHILDREN HAVE SUITABLE CLOTHING IN THEIR KIT.
(THIS MUST INCLUDE TRAINERS AND A WARM JACKET).
Some children will also need a change of clothes for Forest School and outdoor learning during the course of the year.
Don't forget that PE kit needs to be worn for any after school sport clubs too, so must be available for those.
Our projects will be changing as the year progresses, we will update this page and let you know via Class Dojo to keep you fully informed. You will also find links to our work and any examples further down the page.
