Home Learning During Absence

Michael Thame Reading link:

If your child is absent from school, please find below a variety of resources to support home learning across the curriculum. Some of these suggest printing but most can be completed on paper. (For example, with the art shading activities, instead of printing, you can just copy and draw your own objects to shade.)

Children who have a Reading Plus login can continue to read on there.

All children have their TT Rockstars login.

Welcome to Class 15! Our teacher is Miss Joyce. We are looking forward to a very exciting year in Year 6, with lots of things to fit in! As a Year 6 team, we will look to support and challenge the children throughout the year, ensuring they are prepared for their SATs, well in advance of their exams. As well as our SATs, there are lots of other great things to look forward to, including our residential to Barnstondale!

Important Information for Parents

Home reading – We expect your child to have their diary in and signed at least four

                          times a week.

Homework – Homework is set on a Monday and due in on a Friday.

PE – We have PE on a Tuesday afternoon. (We are currently doing gymnastics on a Wednesday afternoon.)

Games – We have games on a Friday afternoon.

Children are made aware of the importance of having PE kit for both lessons. If children do not have the appropriate kit, they are unable to participate fully in the lesson and therefore extra-curricular clubs will not be accessible to children who do not participate in lessons. We appreciate sometimes there are difficulties for children to have full PE kits and we do have spare kits to lend to the children in such circumstances.

Pleasure see our curriculum pages for more information about what your child will be learning in the different areas of the curriculum this year.

If parents or carers ever want to discuss anything regarding their child’s happiness and/or progress, I will always be happy to help ensure your child gets the best attention they deserve. We also check diaries daily, so you can address any concerns you may have this way, if you don’t get a chance to catch me.

Thank you for all of your support, we look forward to a great year, one which we have no doubt will fly by!

Miss Joyce
