Welcome to the Class 6 homepage where you can find useful information, read about what we will be learning this half term and see how you can help at home. If you have any questions or would like to discuss something with us, please write a note in your child's planner and arrange to meet at a suitable time with Miss Hargreaves (mornings can be a little hectic!)

Please don't forget to follow our school twitter page and check out Class 6's hashtag to keep up-to-date with what we're doing in school.

Project

 

PE

PE will be on Tuesday afternoons. Please ensure your child has their full PE kit with them on that day. Children should have appropriate footwear for PE such as trainers or lace up pumps, a hair bobble if necessary and able to remove or cover earrings / watches etc.

 

Planners

Planners should be signed by a parent/carer each weekend and your child should return them to school on Monday mornings to be signed by one of the Y6 team. We really encourage children to use their planners as much as possible for reminders, key dates, extra homework etc. as it really helps them to develop their independence and is good preparation for them at high school. In your child's planner you will see their weekly spelling list, spelling scores, messages from staff, their current TT Rockstars level and other important information about your child's learnign and behaviour. Please do check your child's planner frequently and ensure that they bring it to school with them everyday. If you have any messages or questions to pass on, please feel free to jot them down and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Spellings

Spelling tests will be held every Monday afternoon and the children will receive their new spellings on the same day. The number of spellings that the children will receive will differ each week, depending on spelling pattern, however this will not exceed 15 words. For each set of spellings, your child either practise with you, independently or use their spelling frame account to practise using games and tests on the spelling frame website - www.spellingframe.co.uk. If your child is having any problems with this please do let us know. On some occasions, the children will be give additional 'mystery spellings' which will come from previous spelling tests so that the children can revisit words which they may have found difficult. Learning spellings is part of our school's weekly homework requirement and we expect children to practise at home. If we do not feel your child has spent time doing this, they will be expected to learn them in school in their own time.

Homework

 If your child is struggling with their homework, they are to see a Y6 adult before the due date so that we have time to go through it with them.

 

Reading

We politely ask that you continue to support your child's learning by encouraging them to read as often as possible. As a school, we expect children to read a book of their choice independently or to an adult every day. Your child should bring their chosen book home and then return it to school the next day to ensure they have it for allocated reading time. Silent reading will take place every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoon. Due to the current circumstances, the children will not be able to change their reading books as frequently as usual as returned books will need to be quarantined before being borrowed by another child. There are a wide selection of quality texts aimed at the appropriate level + for Year 6 children in our classroom and we really encourage that the children try to read as many of them as possible. Despite that, however, if your child would prefer to bring in a book from home they can, as long as it appropriate in challenge and content.

 

Helping at home

Please look through your child's homework before it is returned. If they have not found this easy or you think they need more practise with this at school, please let us know by writing a note in their planner and we will endeavour to address any problems they might have. 

Year 6 requires lots of hard-work, organisation and a positive attitude, however, we do still plan on having lots of fun, creating life-long memories of your child's final year at Scholes; and raising lots of money for our Y6 enterprise to help us end our year with a bang. We thank you for continued support and cooperation.
