Welcome to the Year 6 Class Page
Hello I am Mrs Kerrigan, Year 6 teacher and Deputy Headteacher.
I am looking forward to the challenges and opportunities ahead of us this year. Alongside Mrs Almond and Mrs Hume, both Year 6 and I will continue to work hard to achieve our full potential.
Just a few updates:
Homework will be given out regularly this year. Usually, homework will be sent out on Friday and will be due back in the following Wednesday.
PE will take place on Monday however, we are partial to some spontaneous PE to reward extra hard work.
We will continue to follow our RE scheme, 'The Way, The Truth and The Life'.
Your child’s reading book will still continue to be changed when they’ve read it; please remember to sign your child’s journal after reading at home with them. It is expected that children will read to an adult for 5-10 minutes each night. The children will also have lots of opportunities to read and enjoy books throughout the week at school and reading is supported by daily reading sessions. Your child should read regularly at home, encourage them to explore all genres, this does not have to be your child’s school reading book.
This term our topic is Ancient Egypt.
Statutory Assessment Tests
As you know, Year 6 is a very important year for your child. Please try your best to encourage regular and punctual attendance, and full participation in all homework activities.
A little later in the year regular SATS revision sessions will be available. Attendance is not compulsory, but it will certainly help to prepare your child for the tests in May. Please look out for the letter that will be coming your way soon.
Throughout the year, pupil progress is monitored very closely to ensure all children achieve the very best they can. Please continue to support your child with their revision and help them by ensuring they follow a regular bedtime routine, receive plenty of sleep and a hearty breakfast.
If you have any concerns about the progress of your child, please feel free to come in and have a chat with me.
