Welcome to Year 6! Here you can find out all the information you need to know for this year including all about our learning. I am the class teacher, Mrs Cattermole, alongside the other adults in our class who include Mrs Arnold, Mrs Sitton and Ms Rout.
Our topic this term is World War One. We'll be learning about what life was like for soldiers during this time and the events surrounding the great war.
Our P.E days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please make sure PE kits are in for these days. The kit consists of black shorts, white t-shirts and trainers. However, as we may go outside for PE this term please send your child with some black jogging bottoms as well. Please make sure that kit is brought in at the start of the week and we will send them home after P.E at the end of the half term for washing. Some children (not all) will be swimming on a Thursday so they will need their swimming gear for this.
It is super important to child reads at home as often as possible - preferably every day. In our class, every time your child reads at home, they will receive a sticker. Once they collect 10 stickers, they will get a prize!
Your child will also have been given two reading books. One of them is their Accelerated Reader book which they can read at home and once they have complete it and are confident they have understood it, they can take a short quiz at school. The other is a 'reading for pleasure' book - just to read for fun!
Your child will receive homework every Monday due in the following Friday. This includes: spellings; times tables; one page of either a literacy or maths work book (alternative weeks).
Don't forget to check ClassDojo for any notices. Also, if you need to contact me, please do so through ClassDojo during the hours of 8.30am-5:00pm Monday to Friday.
