In class this year, we will be reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Goodnight, Mister Tom, Kensuke's Kingdom and A Bad Beginning as our class stories and doing work based on these books too. We will be focusing on number and calculation in numeracy; there will be regular number card testing so please help your children practise at home. It is also vital that you listen to your children read on a daily basis. I believe that good readers make good writers.
PE will be on a Monday and Thursday. Your child needs their PE kit in school every day. You can check the school website for information on the correct PE kit. Unlike in previous years, children missing PE three times in a half-term will receive a detention. This will also happen if a child does not have the correct equipment three times in a half-term, such as their number card or reading record for example. Children will also receive detentions if their learning log is not in on time.
Year 6 is a great year in a child’s school career. It is a year full of opportunities to be a hero, to be brave, and most importantly, to have fun. I hope your child takes every opportunity they can and has a great time this year.
