Welcome

Welcome to Year 6!

Mr Freckelton is the Year 6 teacher with support from Mrs Beard. We all work extremely hard to create an energetic, engaging and enjoyable learning environment. We hope that your child will take great pleasure from their time in our class as they experience interesting and exciting lessons. We aim to meet the needs of all individuals and are committed to adapting pace, content and resources in order to support everyone. If you have any questions about anything we do in school, please don't hesitate to see one of us at the door or make an appointment to see Mr Freckelton via the school office.

You can stay up to date with Year 6 by following us on the school twitter account.

The Year 6 classroom door will be open for children to arrive each morning from 8:35am until 8:55am. Any child arriving after this time will need to sign in at the shcool office as the register will have closed. School dinner requests are recorded alongside the attendence register.

On arrival, children are expected to put their belongings away tidily and begin their early morning activity promptly which will be detailed on the whiteboard.

Children can be collected between 3:10pm and 3:25pm from the classroom door, unless written permission has been given to Mr Freckelton for the child to walk home alone. Any child not collected after 3:25pm will be escorted to the school office to await collection from there.

Please see the half termly topic leaflet for more details about each subject area and homework activities.

For the Autumn term, P.E. will be on a Tuesday and Friday - although children need to have their P.E. kit in school every day.

Homework

Reading - Children are expected to read at least four times per week and this should be recorded in their reading record.

Spelling - Children are given a weekly spelling word list. The words should be practised four times each week and recorded on the 'Look, Cover, Say, Write, Check' sheet which is in their pink spelling book. They should also create a sentence for each of their words to support them applying the meaning of the words. There is a weekly spelling test on a Friday. 

Maths - Children will be set specific pages in their 'CGP Workbook', which follows on from the work covered in class. This will be set on a Friday and marked in class the following Friday.

Topic - There are termly topic projects for your child to complete which can be read in the topic leaflet - available from the website, the office and given to your child at the start of each new term.

Children need to bring their reading record, reading books and spelling book to school every day. These will be used in class and are regularly monitored.
