GSO Test

Class 6

Welcome to our Year Six class page! 

The Year Six team includes myself, Mrs Campbell, Miss Church, Mrs Atkins and Mrs Moat. Miss Campbell and Miss Church are our teaching assistants. Mrs Moat will be teaching the class on a Tuesday afternoon and Mrs Atkins will be teaching on a Thursday afternoon. 

The children need to bring a water bottle into school every day and they can bring in a healthy snack for break time.

PE

In Term Five, our PE lesson will take place on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure that the children have their PE kits in school on this day. The children will also be doing Forest School on a Friday afternoon and they will need appropriate clothing for this session. Please see link below regarding clothing for Forest School:

Homework

Homework will be set on a Friday and it will be due back in to school by the following Wednesday. If your child finds any of the homework difficult, please feel free to contact me and we can go through this with your child at school. Spellings will be given at the beginning of term and the children will then be tested on a Friday morning. 

Reading

We believe that Reading is so important to help children with their overall learning across the curriculum and to inspire their creative writing! Children in Class Six should read for fifteen minutes a day to support their reading fluency and comprehension skills. Please let me know if you need any recommendations for fantastic books! 

If you have any questions and wish to contact me, please either contact the school office or email me at:

class6@st-peters-canterbury.kent.sch.uk

Best wishes and thank you for your support,
