Welcome to 2022 / 2023
Year 6 Key Information page
The Year 6 class teachers are: Mr Leonard, Mrs Strong and Miss Bell.
Their contact emails: DLeonard@bestacademies.org.uk, HStrong@bestacademies.org.uk, CBell@bestacademies.org.uk.
Water bottles should be brought to school every single day. Clothing (such as jumpers) should be named to avoid being lost.
Homework will usually be set on a Friday and details added to the Satchel One website. Parents have access to know what homework has been set and when it is due. Maths Homework is often a MyMaths online exercise or a workbook might be used. Reading Comprehension homework is in book form and is also given on a Friday and is due by the following Wednesday. Spelling practice tasks will often be set on a Monday and tested one week later.
We strongly recommend that homework is not left until the last minute and that any pupil who is facing difficulties with the homework speaks to the teacher as soon as possible rather than missing the deadline.
Reading is so important. Year 6 pupils should be reading every day at home and sharing what they have read with their parents / carers. The Accelerated Reader programme is being used to incentivise reading at the appropriate level for each pupil.
This half-term, children in Year 6 will be swimming on a Monday and doing their second P.E session on a Wednesday. However, they must ensure that their P.E is in school at all times.
