Hello Year 6,
What a fantastic first week we have had. Those of you who have volunteered for jobs have been brilliant taking on your new roles and responsibilities. We have also noted that around school you are all trying really hard to be wonderful role models for the younger children - keep it up!
This week we have given out homework. As it is the start of the year, there may be some questions on the homework sheets that we have not revisited or taught yet. Don't panic if there is something that you are unsure of. Attempt all those questions that you can and we will celebrate your homework and go through any unknown areas on Friday. Those of you who enjoy a challenge, attempt all the questions !
Class 14 you have swimming Monday afternoon.
Keep up the hard work!
Year 6 Team.
Hello Year 6,
Welcome to a brand new school year of exciting opportunities and learning. We hope that you have had a restful summer and are all really looking forward to working together as a team. There are many fantastic activities planned for the year ahead.
Here is some information to help you as you return to school.
Swimming will take place for as long as conditions allow from 8th September.
Class 13 swim on Wednesday afternoons and Class 14 on Monday afternoons.
We have Tag Rugby professional coaches to look forward to in Games every Thursday afternoon this term starting this week ( 9.9.21) so please come dressed in the appropriate kit for all weathers.
Homework will be sent home in books this term to be completed and returned the following week. We ask that the children are encouraged to complete this to a high standard. We would also like the children to continue to focus on learning their times tables and related division facts.
Children will be taught a spelling rule during the week and it will be their task to learn that rule for their homework. On Fridays we will then test the children on that spelling rule.
We will be encouraging children to read four times a week at home. Please ensure you record this in your child's reading record. We will check the reading records each week to see which children have read four times, these children will then receive a raffle ticket with a chance to win a prize at the end of the term. The class which have the highest number of children reading four times will receive a trophy during our assembly.
The children have already made a great start to settling into school. Many have volunteered to take on responsible jobs and are acting as fantastic role models to the younger children. Well done - keep it up.
Finally we would like to welcome Mr David O'Connell to St Anne's and Year 6.
The Year 6 Team.
