Welcome to Year 6, Class 13
Our class teachers are Mrs Toal & Mr Neilson.
Our teaching assistant is Miss Kenneally.
We have PE on Monday and Friday each week, so a full PE kit (white shorts, white t-shirt and trainers) should be in school on these days.
Homework is set every Monday via Google Classroom, to be completed for Friday.
Spellings are practised daily (5 per day) with a full spelling test administered every Friday. Spelling books have been given for practice at home, and the spelling lists (current and previous) are available on Google Classroom.
A knowledge quiz is held every Friday based on homework tasks assigned in science and one other topic. Each week the quiz starts with questions from previous weeks to promote long-term knowledge retention, so please remind your child to recap on prior learning as well as that for the current week.
Reading is hugely important and an ‘Accelerated Reading’ book is provided for your child to take home each day, along with their reading record. We recommend a minimum of 20 minutes reading per night and the pages read should be logged in the reading record. Accelerated Reading quizzes are to be taken in class upon completion of each book, aiming for 100%.
Children should bring a full water bottle (labelled with their name) to school each day (only water is allowed – not juice or pop).
