WELCOME TO YEAR 6!
Welcome to the Year 6 page.
Your child's class teacher is Mr Ogden.
Mrs Stevens teaches on a Wednesday and Thursday afternoon.
Mrs Dyer is the teaching assistant in Year 6.
THE END OF YEAR 6 EXPECTATIONS CAN BE FOUND HERE:
We have Games outside on Mondays, Dance indoors on Tuesdays and Gymnastics indoors on Thursdays, when we need a kit for indoor and outdoor activities.
Homework will be set on a Friday to be handed in the following Thursday. Homework will usually consist of Maths and English. It is extremely important that children complete their homework on time. We encourage independence with homework tasks, but if your child finds a particular task really challenging and you have had to give a lot of support, please write a comment on the sheet/page.
We hear the children read as often as possible in school. Please continue to help with reading at home as even though the children are now free readers they still need to read as often as possible. It is important that the children not only read the words, but understand the meaning of the words. The books need to be in school each day.
Class Dojo is a new way for teachers to encourage students and contact parents about their child's progress in class. It can be used online or downloaded as an app on iOS and Android devices. Please ask if you require a copy of your log in.

FIRE SAFETY VISIT
We had a special visit from the firefighters at Whitehill Community Fire Station, who explained to us the importance of fire safety - particularly on Bonfire Night and at Halloween.
As well as giving us some extremely importance advice, we also tried on the protective clothing used when tackling fires.

TRIP TO HIGHFIELD COUNTRY PARK
Year 6 visited Highfield Country Park as part of their persuasive writing unit in English. The children explored the landscape and used iPads to capture the nature and purpose of the area. They then used their newly acquired knowledge, evidence and experience to create their own persuasive campaign leaflets.
