Welcome to Year 5/6 DC
Hola! Buenos Dias!
We have had a wonderful start to Year 6 already and have even had a taste of what our SATs will be like in May next year.
Miss Clark is so excited to be working with such a fantastic class and is looking forward to all of the exciting work, trips and responsibilities that our class have coming up this year.
We have all returned to school this September with a mature and positive attitude towards school. Year 6 is an important and often very exciting year with fabulous trips and opportunities and lots of important learning.
Keep being super stars 5/6 DC!
Parents and carers please keep an eye on this, our class page, for updates on what we do in class and for pictures and examples of your children's work.
Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure that you have a full school PE kit in school on both of these days.
Homework is given out every Friday and will be monitored during the week.
Spelling and times tables tests will be carried out on Fridays. Consistent scores on these weekly tests will lead to prizes!
Our Class Target
One of our main targets this year is to improve our reading comprehension skills and there are a number of ways in which we can do this.
Please read with your child each night at home. This will increase their vocabulary and their pace of reading.
Miss Clark will provide your children with comprehension questions in their reading record books at least once every fortnight.
Times Tables Rock Stars
Every child in our school has a TT Rock Stars login (you will find this inside the cover of your child's homework book).
Miss Clark (or Jeff Squeakdiggler which is her rock star name) sets us regular challenges on this website which can be accessed online and on the TT Rock stars app.
This is an additional and very worthwhile activity which will help us greatly in our SATs Arithmetic paper.
