Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome to Miss Lansley's Year 6 class! We are supported by Mrs Goodman, Mrs Broadhead and Mrs Wilding. On this page you will find useful information about our work and ways you can help your child at home. Check back often to see what we've been learning!
Homework - Your child will receive SATs Booster homework booklets (maths/reading/SPAG) on a Friday morning, which must be handed in on the following Thursday morning. Each booklet should take 10 minutes to complete. The children will also receive spellings on a Friday morning, which should be learnt in time for the test on Thursday morning. In addition, topic grids are given out termly/half termly.
Homework will alter after the SATs and the children will be made aware of any changes.
PE - PE will generally take place on a Monday afternoon and a Thursday afternoon. However, sometimes this may change and so your child needs their PE kit in school every day so that they are prepared from week to week.
PE kit should consist of:
Reading - Please make sure that your child reads every night for around 15-20 minutes (as far as is possible). Fluency in reading helps children to build their understanding of the world, their comprehension, vocabulary and develops empathy for others. If you can, listen to your child read and ask them questions about the text. Reading can be from many sources, not just their reading scheme book.
