My name is Miss Penellum and I will be teaching Class 6 this year. The fabulous Mrs Needham, our Higher Level Teaching Assistant and Librarian works alongside me and our children.
In year 6 we promote reading for pleasure and every child should be reading at home for at least 15 minutes 5 times per week. Please ensure your child uses the 'reading record' to log their reading activity. Their reading record needs to be in school every day and they should be reading a range of text from fiction, non-fiction, poetry.
Homework will be set every week and will be expected to be brought in the following week. Homework will include a short Maths task and a related literacy task. Children are also expected to learn times tables and spellings at home.
Any work your child does at home and any extra support you can give them will also greatly help them in their preparation for the SATs week (Monday 8th May-Thursday 11th May).
Swimming is part of the curriculum and children will go every Friday morning for the whole of the Autumn term and again in the Summer Term.
Class 6 PE is currently on Monday afternoon.
