Y6 2017 - 2018

Welcome Back to Y6!

Year 6 are taught Maths and English each morning by Mr Rickaby.  In the afternoons, they join Y5 in Sapphire Class where they are taught by Mrs Willis on Mondays and Fridays and Mrs Kelsey on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

PE happens on a Monday.  This term the class will split for PE lessons.  Half of the class will have Gym with coach Ella Kelsey whilst the other half with have Striking & Fielding games with coach Jenny Jackson.  The groups will swap after half term.  Kit should be left in school all week just in case we do an additional sporting activity on another day.  Children take part in The Daily Mile each morning too.

On a Friday afternoon Sapphires take part in a gardening session. They need to bring in a pair of wellies or old trainers on Fridays - they can also bring in a change of clothes if they wish.

Homework for boths Maths and English is set on a Thursday and is due back by the following Tuesday.  Spare sheets are always available in the homework drawer in the classroom for any that go missing.  Children should always ask for help early if needed, rather than leaving it to the last minute and not handing in on time.  Mr Rickaby and Mrs Wiseman are always willing to help and explain things again.

Every week children have a different spelling pattern to work on.  Everyone works on the same pattern, but some children work on List A and others work on List B.  The children know which group they are in.  Spelling is taught in class and children also have a folder to bring home so that parents are aware of what the pattern is for that week.  The spelling booklet for this term is available to download below.  Ignore the fact that it says Autumn term, we are using it in the Spring.
