Welcome to Year 6!
Your class teachers are: Mrs Fox (6P) and Mr Hayer (6G).
Your teaching assistants are: Mrs Riches, Mrs Gissane and Mrs Hall.
From time to time, Mr Robinson will also work within Year 6.
In additional to completing a homework task from the grid each week, you will also receive an additional piece of either maths, grammar or reading homework each week. This will be issued to help you revise for the upcoming SATs tests, as well as practise the skills that you have been taught in class. Children who complete their additional homework will be rewarded with additional merit points!
Your marked homework will be given back to you by Wednesday. Following this, you will have up until the Tuesday of the next week to complete your next tasks and hand them in on time. Being able to meet homework deadlines is a very important part of growing up and accepting your responsibilities to learning.
Daily reading and times table practise
In addition to weekly homework, please listen to your child read daily and sign their homework diary. Listening to your child read daily will help to improve their fluency, comprehension as well their confidence.
We would also like the children to get in the habit of practising their times tables regularly in order to support their quick recall of these extremely important number facts. So that parents/carers can see how their child is progressing with their times tables, we will send home the children's weekly times table tests so that you can continue to practise with them at home and know the areas in which they need to continue to develop in.
