WELCOME TO YEAR 6
Mrs Carberry-Lewis (class teacher), Mrs Collins and Mrs Samuelson look forward to working with your children in their final year of Primary School!
This term, Year 6 will be learning all about Britain during World War I and World War II. We have lots of exciting cross-curricular learning planned that you can read about in detail on our Curriculum newsletter below.

In addition to this, children can access the following websites for free at home:
If you have any questions or would like any additional resources to support your child, please speak to Mrs Carberry-Lewis on the gate or contact the School Office. Thank you for your support.
As we start preparing children for secondary school, we will no longer be expecting them to complete a termly homework project. Instead, children will be provided with a weekly Maths and English task. Homework will be given out on a Tuesday and expected in on a Monday for marking. If children need help with their homework, I am happy to assist them with it in school. If they do not bring in their homework on Monday, they will be expected to complete it during their break time.
Children will receive weekly spelling words and an accompanying activity. It is important that they practice these words at home ready for a spelling test every Monday.
It is extremely important that children are reading as much as possible at home. They should also be able to discuss their book with you and answer questions about what they have read. This should be logged in their reading record. Please remind your children to bring their reading records and books into school every day, so that they can be checked by adults in school.
Year 6 PE sessions will be taught on a Friday. Please ensure that children wear their PE kit to school We will be outside as much as possible, so please ensure that they are appropriately dressed as the weather gets colder. Long hair should be tied up and no jewellery should be worn for health and safety reasons.
