Welcome to 6VdB
We are really excited to welcome the children into Year 6 and to share their learning journeys throughout the year. It is great to get back to some normality after the challenges of the last few years and the children have settled well into their new year group. Year 6 is a great opportunity for the children to develop their maturity, independence, levels of responsibility and to prepare for their move to secondary school. It is a fun, challenging year.
In Year 6, the children are split into three English and maths groups. This enables us to work in smaller groups, which really benefits the children and helps them to achieve their full potential.
The group teachers are:
Mrs May / Mrs McMahon with Ms Cooper as TA.
Mrs de Boer with Mrs Howes as TA.
Mrs Montgomery with Mrs Gibbons as TA.
The children spend each morning in their groups.
During the afternoon sessions, the children mainly stay in their class base with their Class Teacher, although they are also taught by the other Year 6 teachers within some subjects. This enables the teachers to maximise their subject expertise and is a great preparation for the children as they move to secondary school where they will experience many different teachers.
Please see the Year 6 newsletter for information about the topic areas that will be taught this term in Year 6 within each subject area.
P.E. is on Monday and Wednesday. The children need to come to school in their P.E. kits on these days. P.E. kit is a white t-shirt, black shorts / joggers and trainers. As the weather becomes colder, a jumper can be worn. All jewellery should be removed for P.E. and long hair should be tied back.
Homework is set termly. Homework will be set through teams and the children will be required to achieve a set number of points. Tasks are set within English, maths, science and topic linked to the work that is being covered in class. Homework will be regularly monitored and checked to ensure children are on track to achieve the required number of points.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or concerns. We are here to help and support the children.
Mrs de Boer & Mrs Howes.
