Spread your wings and soar to success

Welcome to the Year 6 class page. Each week we will update you with what we have been learning and add some pictures too.  Happy reading...

Week 1- autumn 1(W/C: 2/9/18)

Your child's teachers in Y6 are: Mr McClure, Miss Howell, Mr Trickett and Miss Wenham.

 This week we have hit the ground running and started to learn all about place value with numbers up to 10,000,000 in Maths. In Literacy skills and Literacy, we have been studying diary entries and the key features in these.

Children have tried really hard and are starting to see exactly what is needed to be a successful Y6 pupil.

Autumn 1 homework has been handed out and is due back on the last Wednesday of the half term (23rd October).

Spellings have been sent home for Y1-6 and should be practised daily. Please also ensure your children are practising times tables and maths facts daily as well as reading with an adult as much as possible.

PE days for Y6 are Mondays and Tuesdays. Please ensure pupils have complete kit.

Thanks for your continued support.
