Welcome back to school Year 6!
We hope you have had a restful summer and that you and your families are safe and well. We are excited to be working with you this year and are looking forwards to the learning we will be undertaking together this year!
Year 6 are taught by class teacher Miss Harrington and are supported in their learning by their teaching assistant Mrs Jennings. We strive for our children’s learning to be interesting and motivating. In year 6, we aim to develop the child as a whole, caring for not only their educational needs but also their mental well being, social and emotional needs as well. Our focus this year will be providing them with the skills and knowledge they need to successfully complete their primary education and prepare them to make a smooth and successful transition into the next stage of their educational journey.
Reading - Here at St Peter's we encourage a love for reading and ask that, at home, children in Year 6 read everyday and have the opportunity to read aloud at least once a week to an adult.
Spellings - We also ask the children to practice their spelling rule at home using the spellings given to them through SpellingFrame. Please encourage them to play games through this website.
Timestables - Please use Times Table rock stars at home to with practicing spelling along with verbal rehearsal of timestables
Homework - Homework will be set through Seesaw and will go live on Fridays and should be completed by the Wednesday of the following week in order for Miss Harrington to comment and approve it.
PE Kits - On PE days (Wednesday and Thursday), children must come to school wearing their PE kit which they will wear all day.
We are looking forward to working with you and your child over the coming year.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact us either by contacting the school office or through the Year 6 email address.
English Book Term One
This term we are reading 'Journey to the River Sea' by Eva Ebbotson in our English lessons.
Due to the COVID 19 situation, all chapters of the book will be voice recorded and stored here for the children to listen to when they are directed by the class teacher to do so. This way all children can keep up to date with where we are in the story and will not miss out.
