Welcome to Year 6!
We are Yew class and we are the oldest children in the school. We're excited to be taking on new learning challenges as well as responsibilities around the school.
Our teachers are Mrs Atkins and Mrs Bujniewicz. We also lucky enough to have Mrs Pearson, Mrs Gear and Mr Bottomley to help us learn.
Our playtime is 11.00 until 11.15 and our lunch is 12.30 until 1.30. We go out to play first at lunchtime which means we have the opportunity to meet and help some of the younger children in the school.
Our PE day is Friday - so we come to school in our PE kit that day.
We have music with Mr Adams from Castle school on a Wednesday.
Our Outdoor education will be on a Tuesday afternoon and will begin on Tuesday 2nd November until Christmas. We will then have it again on a Thursday afternoon from Thursday 3rd March until the Easter break.
Each week we have spellings to practise on Spelling Shed. These will run from Wednesday to Wednesday and our test will be on a Wednesday.
We read every day - aiming for 20 minutes as a minimum.
Homework tasks will be set on a Thursday and all tasks will be need to be handed in for marking on a Wednesday morning please.
Each week you will be set
English - either punctuation or grammar practise
Reading - there will be a menu of reading activities to chose from (see below if you need another copy)
Maths - activities that consolidate what will be done in class lessons
To support the maths homework, My Maths will be available. NO activities will be set on this but you can log in and access the lessons and further practise of any work that is set.
We also expect that times tables knowledge is secure by Year 6. TTRockstars is an excellent way to practise and keep your tables in tip-top shape!
