Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 will be taught by Mrs Boulton and Miss Hoey who will be supported by our helpful teaching assistants, Mrs Barry, Mrs Neil, Mrs Smithies and Mrs Hennessey .
Our PE sessions will be carried out on Tuesdays and children will be expected to have a full school PE kit available each week as part of their school uniform.
Homework folders will be sent home on a Friday and will contain maths homework and a writing/grammar task. Homework folders should be returned by Tuesday. Spellings will be practised throughout the week.
Homework club is on Monday at 3.15pm. If you want to join, see Mrs Davey.
It is vital that children are encouraged to complete and return their homework on time in order to prepare them for their transition and the increased workload at high school next year. In addition to this, encouraging your child to read at home will benefit them massively as this year we will be working on reading for endurance and speed.
To give them a helping hand along the way, regular encouragement to read and discussing or questioning them about what they are reading would be really beneficial and much appreciated!
Well what a fun filled day we've had in Y6! Today we have learnt about how Argentina celebrate Harvest. We learnt about how they have a parade of floats and how ladies from all over Argentina come to audition to be the Harvest Queen. We had some marvellous speeches, and our vote lead to us having two Harvest Queens! We made delectable meat-based pizzas, as Argentinians are big meat lovers! We also made autumnal wreaths using a range of materials and textures. We had a great day!
