Welcome to Year 6
Our class teacher, Mr Selby, teaches the class on Monday - Thursday. On a Friday, we are taught by Mrs Potts.
Being in Class 6 is an exciting and fast-paced year of learning, reflecting, and preparing – as we begin to think about the next steps of our education and prepare for the transition to secondary school.
Our Class Link Governors are Mr Graham McGuffie and Mr Sam Dainty.
Please can I encourage you to sign up for/install Purple Mash at home. Your child can access Purple Mash from home on a laptop, desktop or a tablet. Purple Mash is a safe environment that does not require any downloading or allow interaction with people online and children cannot make any financial transactions. We will be encouraging the children to continue their learning at home and Purple Mash is a great resource for this. Your child will be taught how to use Purple Mash in school and will be able to use it without supervision, but you may want to take a few minutes to explore it yourself so that you can help them with their work. Please click on the picture link to login to Purple Mash.
Note: You have already had your child’s username and password - please let me know if you need this again.
Each week we receive spellings to learn and mathematics activities. We also complete a daily reading diary.
This half-term, our P.E. lessons are on Monday and Friday afternoons. On Monday, we will be taking part in the FRESH scheme which involves an indoor practical lesson and a classroom theory session, based on health and nutrition. On Friday, we will be outdoors to play hockey.
Please ensure your child has a full indoor and outdoor P.E. kit with them in school on these days. Jewellery must not be worn during P.E., with the exception of newly pierced ears which can be covered with plasters until healed. If, for any reason, your child is unable to take part in P.E. lessons, please let us know with a short note handed into school.
In Key Stage 2, children are allowed to bring in their own fruit or vegetable snack to eat at playtime. Snacks should be fruit or vegetables – this does not include snacks containing fruit e.g. cereal bars. School does not provide milk but this can be purchased each half-term via arrangement with the school office.
