Our Year 6 Team
Homework to be given out Friday to be returned the following Wednesday.
Spelling will be sent home on the Friday and children will be tested on the following Wednesday.
We follow the Spelling Shed scheme. Please see the link below.
Children will have access to a variety of books from the book corner and will also have the opportunity to visit the school library on a weekly basis. Books from school will be checked against reading levels by a member of staff within the year group. Children will be encouraged to read to an adult outside of school and signatures to be placed in reading records. We will keep track of signatures through a rewards system to help with building a love for reading.
Tuesday – Outdoor PE
Wednesday – Indoor PE
Please ensure your child wears the correct PE kit as detailed in our uniform policy.
