Year 6

Picture 1

Welcome back!

 

Year 6 is such an important year for so many reasons and it is great to see all the children back safe and well after the summer break. There is lots of hard work ahead, but I'm determined to make it a year full of fun learning and preparing to move on to Secondary Education at the end of the year.

 

There's too much going on to list it all here, but a few things to point out to help things run smoothly. The children will need PE kit in school (black shorts and a white t-shirt for indoors with a plain dark tracksuit style clothing and sensible footwear for outdoor sessions) every FRIDAY please. Also, for just the first half-term, they will need their outdoor PE kit on Tuesdays as Bracknell Forest are sending a Tag Rugby coach in to work with the class and I will be assisting him.

 

Homework will come out every Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday. I try not to set too much, but do expect the children to read and practice mental maths skills daily too if at all possible.

 

The trip to RAF Hendon is on Wednesday 18th October 2017 - always a fantastic day out and hopefully all letters and permission slips have already gone home for this. Please keep your eyes peeled for a Beacon Centre meeting where I will outline the residential trip to Devon (Monday 25th to Friday 29th June 2018) so that you all know what it entails and what needs to happen to make it as successful as last year.

 

All other key dates will be posted on the weekly newsletter so please do look out for them.

 

Other than that we will set out on getting down to the hard work needed in Year 6. If you do need to speak to me please try to catch me before or after school in the playground or else pop in to the office to make an appointment if a little more time or privacy is needed.

 

I am looking forward to a fantastic year with the class and hope that they and you are too.

 

Best wishes
