Who are we?
My name is Ms Steele and I am the Year Six teacher, and Miss Bailey and Mrs Hutchinson are our teaching assistants and will be working with individuals and groups of children throughout the year.
In Year Six we love to read! We start each daily with a reading session, where we build and deepen our understanding of different content domains. Reading with your child are often as possible is very beneficial. Your child will have opportunity to change their books in schools, linked to their reading age. When children have read each day, and it has been signed in their reading record, they will earn a raffle ticket for our prize draw in our Gold Award Celebration.
The children will be doing PE on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on these days and all items are clearly labelled. For health and safety reasons, your child should not wear jewellery on these days, especially earings. Due to weather, PE lessons may be indoors or outdoors and this can change regularly. Please ensure children have appropriate clothing for both, including trainers.
Homework is set every Friday. This will include our weekly spelling patterns and words that the children will then be tested on the following week. There is also an expectation that children reading daily and practice their times tables on a daily basis, where each child has access to Times Table Rockstars. In the wider curriculum, your child will be provided with their knowledge organiser that gives children all of the essential knowledge they must have to deepen their understanding in school. Additional work will be sent in Year Six to support SATS preparation.
If you have any questions about this year, then please do not hesitate to ask myself, Miss Bailey or Mrs Hutchinson, we are more than happy to help on any matter big or small!
