Ambassadors - Prefects - Buddies - Role Models
Recently, at mass, our children were presented with their Confirmation books by Father Simon. They will work on these at home as they prepare for this important sacrament. You can find some information to help on the Diocese of Leeds Website.
If you have any questions, please ask myself, Mrs Moran or Mrs Holdsworth who will support the children on their faith journey in school.
Dear Year 6 parents and carers,
We have settled into year 6 now and the children are more familiar with the structure and routines of the classroom. They are true ambassadors for our school and really shone during our Buddy assembly with Reception class. It was lovely to read your glowing feedback and the children were so proud. They are looking forward to their Remembrance Liturgy where they have the opportunity to welcome you into school again.
I am so pleased to have spoken to so many of you at parents evening. Should you have any further questions or queries please do not hesitate to see us in the playground or speak with the office.
Thank you for your support; it is as always appreciated.
Homework is a vital part of year 6 as it allows the children to practise and consolidate the skills learned in Maths and English. Homework will be given to the children each Monday and is to be back in school, signed by an adult, the following Friday. Your child has taken home a Reading Comprehension book and they will be given weekly homework from this. The time element is not important but it is important that they are reading the text carefully from the first word in the title and going back to it to answer the questions. I would like them to underline or highlight the answers in order to ensure they are referring back to the text.
We will mark the work in their books in class together. Booster classes are available for every child, at dinnertime with a teacher, if there is something they have found tricky either in class or with their homework. Please encourage your child to ask for one if needed before homework is handed in.
Spellings will be given weekly on Wednesday and there will be a weekly spelling test the following Wednesday. The spelling rules are from the National Curriculum and Statutory year 5/6 spelling list.
Home reading books have been given to all children. They must be in school everyday and the children change them once a week on a given day. Please make sure reading records are signed and returned to school each week. Reading with your child daily is vital, in order to ensure they continue to develop their inference and understanding.
Our PE days are now Tuesday and Friday. Please make sure PE kits have all the clothing as well as pumps and trainers necessary.
PE kit and footwear should be in school at all times.
Indoor kit: white t-shirt, blue shorts, socks and black pumps.
Outdoor kit: a plain blue tracksuit, white t-shirt, socks and trainers.
