Welcome to our Year 6 class page.
Some of the high schools have contacted me to say they have virtual tours and powerpoints of their school available as they will not be able to offer their usual open days.
Philips have a tour available on their website and a prospectus.
Unsworth’s tour is available from the following link https://unsworthacademy.org.uk/virtual-tour/ They have also sent me a letter which I have attached below.
Bury Church have information available from this link https://www.burychurch.bury.sch.uk/open-event-2020.php
I haven’t been contacted by any other schools yet but I will update this page if any more are sent. You could also visit the school’s website and see if there is anything available there if there is another school you are interested in.
I have set the weekly homework for Year 6 on Microsoft Teams. The children have arithmetic and reading comprehension homework. This needs to be completed and returned via Teams by Thursday. The children have had some time in class to access and navigate Teams in class. I have sent their individual log ins to parents and carers by text message. If you have any problems with accessing or using Teams there is a link below to the Guide to Microsoft Teams. If this does not help please email me and I will do my best to help. There is a chat feature on Teams but this is for the children to use to communicate with me. The class email is for parents.
Your class email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please use this email address to contact the myself or Mrs Gresty with any queries or concerns regarding your child’s learning. Please allow 2 working days for us to respond.
Parent and Teacher Meeting
Thank you to all the parents and carers who attended the parent and teacher meetings this week; it was lovely to see you all. The powerpoint I used is attached below for your reference.
We will put the weekly spellings for each group on this page every week. Please look at the attachments below. Your child should know which spelling groups they are in. They only need to learn the spellings for their group. Children will need to learn their spellings for their test every Thursday. We have also attached the Year 5 and 6 spellings and some creative ways to learn spellings below.
