Dear Parents,
A warm welcome to Year 6! We are looking forward to working with your children this year and hope you find the following information useful.


As well as myself Mrs Bowen, Year 6 will be taught by Mr Hopkins on Monday morning. Mrs Smith is our Teacher Assistant. Please continue to use the home-school books for any messages or questions you may have. Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled. A selection of fruit continues to be sold at breaktimes by Year 6 for 30 pence, or the children are welcome to bring their own. We encourage the children to drink water during the day and they may bring in their own water bottle.

This year the school has introduced a new initiative of walk a mile to improve their general health and wellbeing. This involves the children walking a mile every morning before lesson start, therefore please ensure the children wear sensible footwear.

The homework set will always be linked to what is being learnt in the classroom and frequently the children are required to carry out research for thematic and language work in class.  We understand that is is sometime not possible to complete homework, if this is the case can you please let us know via the home school link book or the class dojo website. Children who consistetly fail to complete homework will be required to complete it during their break times.

All the children will benefit from continued reading support, sharing of books and learning of times tables.

Our class author is Michael Morpurgo and the children will enjoy a selection of his books throughout the year.

                  Many thanks for your continued support,
                         Mrs Bowen.
