Teacher: Mr Boden
Higher Level Teaching Assistant: Miss Thomas
Welcome back everyone. We are all really excited at the start of this new year and look forward to achieving great things in Year 6. This year the class will be split in two, with Miss Barker and Mr Husted having half a class each. If you have any concerns about anything we are all available at the end day or you can contact us through our class email.
What does it do?
Helps to remind you of some of the main spelling and grammar rules in a fun way.
Gives good examples of how to use all those different pieces of punctuation we have talked about in class
Gives you quick practise of key number skills to help your mental maths. Don’t forget to up the level and difficulty on the side bar!
Reading comprehension passages (it’s the 2nd website down!)
Gives you lots of short, but interesting reading passages, which you can then sharpen your comprehension skills on by answering the multiple choice questions. (Year 6 need to be doing the grade 5+ questions)
If you have anything that you wish to talk to us about please approach us at the end of the day or contact the school office if you would prefer to make an appointment.
Year 6 will have a weekly spelling test.
Spellings will be given out every Thursday and the test will take place the following Thursday.
Class Dojos: In Y6 we always thrive to build an amazing classroom community. Class Dojos is a safe and simple communication app for teachers, parents and pupils. See a member of the Y6 staff for your own personal login. Login and help us celebrate your child daily successes.
PE: Children will participate in 2 one hour P.E. sessions per week - on a Tuesday and a Friday.
All children require a P.E. kit to join in; this consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps/trainers.
Children will be using A.P.E within many different lessons of the curriculum. If you would like to support your children with this at home. Please click the following link A.P.E Sheet for further information.
Reading is a key skill that we want all children to develop. Please read with your children regularly and record this in their planner. It is important that fluent readers have the chance to read and talk about books with an adult. Please ask questions that check whether your child understands what they have read.
