WELCOME TO YEAR 6
Welcome back to all our Year 6 children. It has been so nice to see so many smiling faces and children who are eager and excited to learn. I am thrilled to see so many responsible Year 6s who are already proving to be excellent role models around school, taking on their new prefect jobs like true professionals.
The year ahead is filled full of fun and excitement as we start our ‘I’m a Survivor’ topic, where we will develop our knowledge of the world and also look at how to survive on a desert island, which will link with our class novel for the first half term: Kensuke’s Kingdom.
Reading is a key priority in school and children will read in school everyday and so it is important that they have their reading book in school everyday so that they can read independently and also to an adult throughout the week. It is also vital that children read regularly at home and that you/they write in their reading diary to show this. Throughout the year we will encourage the children to take part in book reviews and recommend books to the rest of the school and upload these to our website.
We will keep you updated with what’s going on in class through this class page and also our Class Dojo story so keep a look out for all the new things we have been learning.
If you have any worries, concerns or questions I am always available after school for you to pop in.
Looking forward to meeting lots of you soon
Mrs Owens, Mrs Scanlon and Mrs Gibbs
