Welcome to our Year 6 class page.
Hi Year 6
Well done for settling in so well. It has been fantastic to have you all back in class and you have already completed some great work. Excellent effort; we are really proud of you all.
To give you a break from the screen we will not be setting arithmetic and reading homework on Teams on Fridays, as we usually do, for the next few week. We will start setting homework again on the last Thursday before we break up for Easter to be returned by the first Thursday back after the holidays. Please continue to read your reading books at home and we will still be changing these every Friday. There will not be any spelling patterns set for you to learn on Teams for the next few weeks either but we would like you to learn your Year 5/6 spellings. You should have your highlighted lists but the lists are below if you need them. Feel free to use the fun ways to learn your spellings on the link below too. You will be having a Spelling Bee and spelling test on these words before we break up for Easter so make sure you do learn them regularly.
The class email address is: email@example.com . Parents are still very welcome to use this email if they need to contact us.
Well done again for settling back in to school so brilliantly.
