Welcome to Year 6 Class!


Meet the team…

Welcome back and Happy New Year to you all! I trust you all had lovely break. In this newsletter I hope to give you some useful information about the learning opportunities that your child will experience this term. I would like to continue building positive partnerships with all parents and guardians, in order to ensure the best possible learning experience for the children. If you have any queries then please feel free to contact me in school.  

Mr J G Paynter

How you can help your child

* Practise times tables with your child.

* Read as much as possible and question your child about the text they are reading.


Useful Information



Class Homework (out on Friday in on Wednesday electronically)

Reading (Every night if possible as this is so important)



Reading books:

Please read with your child every night (or as often as possible) for at least 10 minutes.  They should bring their reading books to school every day.



PE days and required kit:

Games kit will be needed on a Monday. Children can wear their PE kit to school to avoid getting changed (so trainers and clothes suitable for outdoors).




This term we will continue to push spelling accurately in our work and trying to make spelling fun. All children will be given spellings each week to learn and will be assessed through activities during the week.
