Hello and welcome to our Year 6 class!
Here you should be able to find everything you need to know about your child's final year at Holy Cross.
I have an open door policy and am happy to meet with parents before or after school or I can contact you by telephone if needed. If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Throughout the year I will also be using Class Dojo to share photos of our learning so please ensure you are signed up! If you need help then please let me know or see Miss Sims in the office.
This year is full of exciting and engaging topics and learning outside of the classroom. I have taught Year 6 for many years and I believe it is an excellent time for the children to really show who they are. They will have opportunities to lead, guide and share their learning with others. I do hope they have a memorable last year in primary school and really push themselves to see what they are truly capable of!
This term our PE sessions will be on Mondays and Tuesdays. This may change termly so please make sure you check the class newsletter each term. Children should wear their PE kit to school on both of these days.
Homework, reading and spellings...
Homework will be set on a Friday and due in the following Wednesday. This will be either grammar, reading or maths. If your child is unable to complete work at home due to outside commitments then please do let me know as I can allow they time during the school day.
All children will have an individual reading book. Please encourage children to read as much as they can at home. Children have been told to note down all reading in their reading journals so that I can see when and what they are reading.
A termly overview of spellings can be found on the link below. Children will be tested every Friday.
