Welcome to our 2016-17 Year 6’s and parents. We have an exciting year planned where we will continue to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for our pupils in addition to giving them experiences which they will remember for a lifetime, not least our Year 6 residential.
As the year progresses we will prepare the children for National Curriculum Tests which they will sit in May. More importantly however, we will allow the children to develop critical life skills like collaboration, empathy, interdependence and provide stimuli for enquiry and deeper learning. We look forward to the year ahead.
The Year 6 team is led and supported by Mr Prendergast.
Routines & Notices
Children should bring their reading records to school every day. We would like to see parent/carer comments in the children’s reading records three times a week.
Homework will be set on a Thursday to be returned on a Tuesday. Pupils will receive regular spelling homework and homework to consolidate the learning in the classroom.
Pupils may be required to finish off uncompleted work from class. This will be set, along with a deadline, on a case by case basis.
Registration & Dismissal
It is expected that all children arrive between 8:40am – 8:50am and that they line up with their class when the bell goes at 8:50am.
Your child’s class will be dismissed at 3:20. Please allow plenty of space around the door and teacher when collecting your child.
If your child is being collected by another family member or friend please write a letter to your child’s teacher. If your child is allowed to walk home alone please write a letter to your child’s class teacher with this information.
Pupils are not allowed to have mobile phones on their person during the school date. Phones should either be left at home or handed to the office at the start of the school day where they will be kept securely. It is the responsibility of your child to collect their phone at the end of the day.
