Welcome to Year 6

Our class teachers are Miss Joyce & Mr Norman, and our Learning Support Assistants are Miss Troy & Mrs Newall.  All of our work (at home or in school) can be accesses on our online learning platform Seesaw. To log in, go to: https://web.seesaw.me/

Important Information:

  • We have P.E on Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child’s full P.E. kit is in school for those days. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term.
  • In order to keep everyone safe, please stand behind the marked area at drop off and pick up times.  This will ensure all children and staff have space to enter and exit their marked area safely. Remember to wear a face covering if you are able to.
  • All children will require a water bottle. Please ensure this contains water only. Children will be able to refill their bottles in class.
  • If you wish for you child to walk to school and home from school alone, please speak to me or Miss Troy.

Home Reading

It is very important that your child keeps up their reading at home. Children will still be expected to read at least four times a week – children can either read their home reading book which will be provided by Miss Troy or they can read on Reading Plus: 

Whilst only some children are currently accessing Reading Plus in school, ALL children have a log in, so can use it at home, or during their silent reading time in class.

Children can access stories online, which helps develop their fluency, speed, understanding and vocabulary. Children’s progress can be monitored by myself, therefore, it’s a great way for me to see how your child is progressing.

Your child can log in to Reading Plus here: https://student.readingplus.com/seereader/api/sec/login
