Welcome to the Year 6 class page.
Our teacher is Mrs Smith and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Hennessey and Mrs Shilley.
A message for incoming September Year 6s:
Hope you are all enjoying the Summer break and getting the chance to see family and friends.
Could you please remember to either send me (via the year 6 homework address) or bring in on your first day back - the 'mood' board all about you (see example below). Include things like your favourite sayings, hobbies, pastimes, music, art, songs, animals, foods, seasons, places etc - fill the page but try to include your name and a picture of you too.
Also - Year 6 equipment list.
Try not to bring carry-on luggage as your pencil case - tray space is limited.
A couple of good quality HB pencils
A rubber that doesn't leave marks on the page
A pencil sharpener
A Glue stick
Some coloured pencils
A purple pen (biro not felt tip)
White board pen
One or two highlighters (yellow, pink, orange and green are the better choices)
A small Oxford dictionary/thesaurus
A BLUE ink handwriting pen (we use Staedtler Handwriting pen 309, dry safe from Amazon)
All of the above will be incredibly useful for you. I am looking forward to seeing you all in September.
Please find an information video which has been put together on how you can support your child with learning to spell. These strategies can be used during as well as post Lockdown to inspire your child to learn their spellings and retain them.
I have also added a crib sheet of the strategies presented in the video as well as some additional strategies which aren't mentioned in the video.
Next week, the video will be moved to the Video Centre.
