Welcome to Year 6!

 

Our teacher is Miss Dobson, with Mrs Fearnley teaching Maths everyday too. Supporting us in class are Miss Willoughby and Mrs Birss, along with Mrs Connor in the afternoon.

 

The children have started Year 6 with a huge amount of positivity and commitment. There are a lot of changes in pace, routine and responsibility but the children are already facing the challenge and tackling things in a mature and respectful manner - keep it up kids! :)

 

Year 6 have already started meeting their buddies when helping them at lunchtimes and have taken on their school jobs really well. I have been very proud to hear so many lovely comments about how the children have supported, looked after and worked alongside their buddies.

On Friday afternoons, 10 members at a time from Year 6 have the fantastic opportunity to go to Bradford Grammar's Clock House to take part in DT lessons with Mr Smales, a staff member from Clock House and one of our school governors.

Please ensure your child's permission slip is back otherwise they won't be able to attend!

 

Key Information

Homework:

English homework is set on a Tuesday to be returned on a Friday.

Maths homework is set on a Friday to be returned the following Tuesday. 

Spellings - Yellow spellings books must be in school on Mondays and Tuesdays, your child will get new spellings each week and must complete the homework in order to improve their spelling knowledge.

Further to this, children will be given 10 spellings on a Monday which are stuck into their homework diaries and must be learnt for Friday; when they will be tested. These spellings are taken from previous Spelling SATs papers and are excellent practice.
