Hi and welcome to Year 6
Our team consists of four experienced Year 6 teachers: Mr King, Mrs Moore, Miss Campbell and Miss Sharp. We are supported by Mrs Wilson (HLTA) and Mrs White (TA).
Reading: 15 minutes per day either on Bug Club (web based reading) or reading a fiction book.
Spellings are given out weekly, the children are given a baseline test on a Monday so they know which spellings they need to focus on. They are tested again on a Friday with all the children keen to beat their previous score.
Maths: Children can independently access Times Tables Rockstars at home to improve their rapid recall of multiplication tables and corresponding division facts.
During the coming weeks children will also receive a homework pack containing reading comprehension, grammar activities and Maths revision of topics already covered. Please encourage your child to complete these activities.
