Welcome to Year 6
Mr Leonard is the Year 6 teacher.
PE Days – Year 6 have PE on a Tuesday afternoon. A full PE kit should be in school for the lesson and taken home for washing regularly. A list of the full PE kit can be found on the website under Parents > School Uniform.
During the first half term (Autumn 1), Year 6 will also be swimming on a Friday morning. The correct swimming kit should be brought each week. Pupils should not wear jewellery which has to be removed for PE and swimming.
Homework and Homework Diaries– Pupils should record all their homework in the Homework diaries they have been provided with. This enables their parents to know what is expected of them. The homework diaries can also be used for communication between parents /carers and teachers.
In preparation for the intensity of secondary school, Year 6 pupils will have regular homework. It is possible they will have a small activity to complete each day.
Most weekly homework tasks are set via websites (Spag.com and MyMaths) and, usually, should be completed within a week of being set. If there are any difficulties with homework, pupils should speak to their teacher as soon as possible. If website homework cannot be completed at home, there are school laptops available for use during break and lunch times.
Some homework is completed on paper or in a workbook. The teacher will inform pupils of the due date.
Reading Books - Reading books and records should be brought to school daily. We encourage children to read every night to support their comprehension skills. Parents can help encourage their child’s reading by listening to them read, asking questions and showing an interest in the books. There are also opportunities for parents to support reading in a wide range of contexts such as newspapers, magazines and other publications.
