Welcome to Year Six - Oak Class

Welcome to Oak class with Miss Bancroft. I am thrilled to be teaching Year 6 this year and I’m sure we’re going to produce some excellent work throughout the year. We are very lucky to have a brilliant teaching assistant: Mrs Griffinand will also be joined for part of the year by Mrs Williams who will be undertaking her teacher training at Fir Tree.

This year our P.E. session is on a Thursday afternoon. Please make sure your child has suitable P.E. kit in school every week. We will also be going swimming at Northcroft Leisure Centre on Wednesday mornings starting on Wednesday 21st September.

Homework will be set on Mondays and is expected to be returned to school, completed to the best of their ability, by the following Monday. This will include a weekly list of spellings to be learnt. Your child should be spending around 60 minutes a week on their homework, with the focus being on quality time spent focusing on the task (i.e. not doing it whilst watching the TV). Children can, of course, spend more time on their homework if they wish.
In addition, it would be really beneficial if you could find some time each day to listen to and discuss the content of the reading books your child brings home. Please remember to sign your child’s reading record each time and ensure they bring both their reading book and record into school each day (I’m sure they will remind you as house points are rewarded for reading at home!).

Our class assembly this term will be on Thursday 29th September, I look forward to seeing you there.

During the summer term we will be running the annual Year 6 Leavers’ Trip to Calshot which is a fantastic, fun-filled four days for the children to enjoy their last school trip of Primary School. Details will follow in a letter shortly.

I will be updating our webpage throughout the year to include photos of the children’s learning, information about our class topics and letters home so be sure to take a look.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss any concerns you may have regarding your child in school, please do not hesitate to speak to me at the end of the school day or contact the school office if your child walks home alone.
