Welcome to Year 6
Also known as...
Year Six Draco Class Newsletter - Autumn Term
I hope you and your child have had a good summer and are looking forward to coming back to school and starting an exciting year.
Y6 will involve a lot of hard work to ensure that the children reach their potential, however there will also be lots of opportunities for interesting and exciting activities both inside and outside of school.
Year 6 in many ways is about getting ready for high school and to help the children get themselves ready each of them will be given a job within school that will be their responsibility. They must ensure that it is completed properly and to a high standard. The children will also be asked to be buddies for the new reception children as they settle into school.
English and Maths homework will be given out each week and more information about this will be provided through Class dojo. There may also be a small number of spellings the children are asked to learn through the week.
As well as this please could you ensure your child either reads independently or you listen to your child read at least once a week.
Please make sure that full P.E. kit is in school at all times and that all items are named. P.E. will take place on a Tuesday and a Friday this half term but this is likely to change through the year.
I hope that this will be an enjoyable year for all the children. Please feel free to come into school if there are any problems or anything which you wish to discuss with me.
