Welcome to Year 6! This term your teachers are Mrs Murphy and Mrs Harris. Miss Bushnell will work in class some of the time as your Teaching Assistant. Your teacher on Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday is Mrs Harris and on Thursday and Friday it is Mrs Murphy.
This is your final year at Park House, it is going to be very busy but we hope that you will enjoy it. Work hard and do your best, but please ask if you need help or feel worried.
Spellings will be given out on Fridays and tested on the following Thursday. New spellings will be uploaded to the Class Dojo Page on a Friday, unless you have your personal word lists to learn. If you have personal word lists to learn from the statutory spellings, then these will be written in to your diaries in the 'Spelling Lists' section (ready for testing the following week).
Maths homework will be given out on Fridays. This will usually be on class dojo and it should be completed by the following Thursday please. If you have problems with any homework, please ask for help rather than worrying at home. I would also expect you to be going on TT Rock Stars several times a week. This will also be checked and up to 5 dojo points added for completing!
I would expect you to be reading for about 30 minutes every night or sharing a book with your parents and siblings. Your parents need to sign your diary to show that you have read in order to receive dojo points that will help you gain your prizes! You earn 3x dojos for 3 reads and can earn extra dojos for doing more
Remember the way to become a better reader is to keep reading
PE is on Wednesday at 2:20pm and on a Friday at 1:10pm. PE this term will be athletics. Your child should come in to school wearing black leggings/ jogging bottoms/ shorts (weather dependant) and trainers. PE will be outdoors so it is important that the children wrap up warm on a chilly day or bring a rain coat if there are light showers. If it is sunny, the children should apply sun cream before school but can bring it with them in their bag to top up if needed.
