Friday 17th November 2017 CHILDREN IN NEED 50p Non-School Uniform day

Year 6

Welcome to the Year Six hub page.

This half term we will be working hard on promoting and improving reading throughout the school.  We will be teaching extra reading lessons throughout the week and these will be recorded in your child’s reading diaries.  To support the extra work in school, we ask for your child to read at least 3x a week at home and have their diary signed by an adult.  

We are still continuing with our Planet Rocks topic and this term will see a switch in focus to Geography.  Also this term, we are holding our ‘Safety Week’ which will incorporate a lot of different areas including: e-safety, anti-bullying and radicalisation.  If there is an area you feel is important to be covered then please come and see me.

Please note that homework is still due in on a Wednesday and that spellings are now on a Thursday.

I would like to finish by saying that it is a pleasure to be teaching your child again and that we will be working hard as they continue along their learning pathway.

If you have any questions about how your child is doing at school then please don’t hesitate to contact me at school.

Thank you,
Mr Stewart
