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 (Tuesdays and Fridays), children must come to school wearing their PE kit which they will wear all day.
Spare shoes for the field - during the next two months your children will be continuing to play on the field during their breaks. To avoid bringing mud in from the field, please can you send your child in with a pair of shoes that they can wear during their breaks on the field, old trainers or wellies would be suitable for this.
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 Two
This term we are reading 'The Northern Lights' by Philip Pullman in our English lessons.
In the event that we have to isolate this term, 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.
