Year 6

We would like to welcome you back to what we know will be an EPIC Year.  We hope you are well and that the children are ready for another busy school year.

Miss Hout as Year 5 and 6 lead.

6T - Mr Tookey

6H - Miss Huggins

Also in our team are: Mrs Lancaster, Mrs Mayow and Mrs Simpson.

 

Reading

As a school we love to read and think this is really important.  It is the expectation that children read for 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week.  Please ensure that you sign your child’s reading record each day that they read.  The children must then return their record to school each day in order for their home reading to be recorded. The children can borrow books from their classroom or the school library. The children should be completing accelerated reader quizzes, when they have finished their book, and are working towards prizes in their class.

PE

This term, we require the children to bring their PE kits into school on their outdoor PE day. This should include joggers, shorts or leggings with a house t-shirt or plain t-shirt and a hoodie or jacket for when it is cold outside.  We will also be continuing with the Big Run this year.

 Indoor (don’t need kit- shoes and socks off): Wednesday

Outdoor (need kit): Friday

 

 Forest School (need kit):

Year 5 will have Forest School every Wednesday from the 14th September to the 19th October. The children will need to bring appropriate forest school clothing, which includes, long trousers, a long sleeve top and wellies.
