Our Year 6 Class
Welcome to Year 6 with Miss Hansard and Mrs Leonard
Year 6 is a fun-packed and busy year with lots to learn and enjoy. It is also very important as we are getting ourselves ready for secondary school. We are the oldest children in the school and therefore, we have lots of responsibilities, including being role models to the rest of the school and taking on more responsibility.
Some of us have the responsibility of being a prefect, librarian, house captain, member of GLOW, school council and eco warriors, as well as being Head Boy and Girl.
Another important part of Year 6 is SATs, which will happen in May. We are working extremely hard to do as well as we can. Throughout the year we will be practising an working hard to build our confidence and get us ready for SATS. We will work hard to improve our skills in reading, writing, maths and SPAG, but we will also be learning new and exciting things through the subjects!
We may also get a chance to go on residential and to stage an end of year production, as well as look back on our memories at Quinton Church Primary School… It is a very exciting year group to be a part of!
Our homework is set on a Friday and collected in the following Thursday. The majority of our homework will be literacy and maths; however, we are sometimes set a research project that is linked with a chosen subject or an important event.
Reading a variety of books is very important and we can work towards reviewing books in our class blogs for others to see. It is also important as it will help with our spelling, vocabulary, and love of reading. Reading logs will be checked weekly to make sure we are reading often.
We also encourage the children to get involved with timestable rockstars as often as possible, including battles which I will set throughout the year! You login details are stuck on the inside of your reading logs, as well as logins for teams and your reading record day, but please ask if you have forgotten or lost these.
Spellings are handed out on a Tuesday and are tested the following Tuesday.
P.E is on a Wednesday and Friday.
We appreciate that some children do not live far away from school and that you might allow them to walk home. If this is the case, please provide a note that explains this otherwise they will be required to wait with a teacher until they are collected by an adult.
If your child is walking home, they may need to bring their mobile phone to school. This needs to be handed into their class teacher in the morning by the child and collected by the child at the end of the day. Mobile phones are not permitted in the classroom, corridors or playground and need to remain switched off until children leave the school premises.
In Year 6 our doors are always open, and we are happy to address any queries or concerns you may have.
