Welcome to our Class 5/6 Page!
Miss Pearson and Mrs Britton
Miss Pearson and Mrs Britton are your child’s class teachers this year. Year 6 is all about the children enjoying their last year in primary school and starting secondary school as prepared as possible.
The school day starts at 8:50am with the classroom doors opening at 8:45am. Registration is at 9:00am and learning starts immediately after. The school day ends at 3:05pm and children will need to be collected by an adult from the top of the yard.
In year 5 and 6, children are allowed to leave the classroom without an adult. If you would like your child to be able to leave the classroom without an adult, you will need to fill in a form and return it to school. Forms are available from the office.
If you would like your child to be collected from school by someone other than yourself then you must inform the office staff or the classroom teacher.
So far, Year 5/6 are learning all about Climate Change- in particular, the impact that it is having upon the polar regions. We have some fantastic learning opportunities in place over the coming weeks: including visitors into school (to help us to learn the importance of recycling), as well as lots of exciting scientific enquires and some wonderful opportunities to enjoy both writing and reading for pleasure- we really do have a fantastic school year ahead!
PE – Our PE day is Tuesday. Please ensure that children have both an indoor and an outdoor PE kit. We recommend that your child has their PE kit in school all week, just in case we manage to sneak an extra session in!
Homework – homework is handed out each week. Miss Pearson sets literacy/ SPAG tasks every Wednesday (when possible) and this is due in on the following Wednesday and then Mrs Britton sets Maths/ Arithmetic tasks every Thursday (again, when possible) and this is due in on the following Thursday. Please ensure that you do your homework at home as it ensures that you get extra practice. It’s so important!
Also, you will be able to choose a levelled book from the school library to read at home, you can however also choose to read your own books from home. We encourage reading to take place every day where possible because good readers, make good writers and ultimately, we want all of you to reach your full potential.
Revision guides – all Year 6 children have been given a study guide. This can be used to pre-learn maths and support with homework. You will really need it on the run up to SATs!
Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
In Year 6, many children have access to social media accounts. The following link has some guidelines for parents regarding safety online and privacy features. There are many hidden features on social media, so it is always worth being ‘clued up’ with what your child is using and accessing.
