Year 6

 

 

Welcome to Year 6!

This promises to be an action packed and productive year. The central topic for Autumn term is World War 2. Using role play to illustrate life in war time Britain. This topic will provide cross-curricular links to other subjects. Children will be encouraged to research independently and find out some interesting facts.

Year 6 will have PE on a Monday and Wednesday.

All children will be expected to bring full PE kit to each session.

 

Our classroom doors are always open for parents who need to discuss any problems or concerns they have regarding  or any other matters.

 

The Year 6 teachers are Mrs J Palit (6JP), Mr S Bland (6SB), Miss E Garbett (6EG) & Mr Harris. Our wonderful classroom assistants are Mrs A Fisher and Miss N Gregg. 

To help the children become more independent they have all been given a Homework Diary. The purpose of this is to organise messages, track reading at home and helps teachers communicate with parents individually (if needed).
