Year 6 - Mrs Clitheroe
WELCOME TO YEAR 6
Hello, I am Mrs Chandler and I am thrilled to be teaching year 6 again this year as well as being the Deputy Head, here, at St Peter and St Paul’s Primary School. I am looking forward to teaching a new class and I am sure together we will have a productive and happy year.
Please use our class page to see all of the exciting things that we are learning about in class, alongside all of the important details you need regarding homework and school equipment.
If you ever have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
In year 6, homework will be given out twice a week.
On a Monday, children will be introduced to their spelling focus for the week which is the high frequency words for Year 6.
A homework booklet will be sent home at the beginning of each half term with a copy of the weekly spellings in and including 10 spellings to learn each week linked to the spelling challenge. These will be tested on Friday each week. In this booklet the children will also have all the log ins they need for the following:
Reading eggs; Spell Zone; Purple Mash; Cluster blogging and Time Table Rockstar.
Please encourage your child to access these on a regular basis.
On a Tuesday, children will receive their Mathematics and English homework, to be returned the following Tuesday. They can complete this at home or are welcome to attend homework club when it is up and running again.
If, for any reason, children do not receive any homework, they should be encouraged to learn quick recall of their times tables, revise areas of the curriculum already taught or complete further reading.
In Year 6, we read frequently throughout the week, whether it is individually, shared reading or in a guided reading group. In Year 6, we know the importance of reading to help us improve in other areas of learning. So reading for at least 10 minutes every day would be very beneficial. Books can be changed every Monday so please ensure your child brings their books in on these days.
Children will take part in PE on a Wednesday afternoon, however it is important that they have their full kit in school at all times.
Please ensure all uniform and PE kit is labelled, as it is very easy to misplace it when moving around class and around school.
