I am very excited to have been given this great opportunity to work with your child during their final year at St Mary’s. Your involvement and interest in your child’s education is most welcome and encouraged.
Year 6 is a very exciting and important year and there are many enjoyable activities to look forward to, both in and out of school. Your child will also be taking their SATS in May next year. I am sure that you and your child are looking forward to the fun yet challenging year that lies ahead!
Homework will be given out on a Monday every week apart from the week before a holiday. The homework needs to be completed and handed in by the Friday of that week. Your child will receive weekly spellings and times tables to learn for their regular Friday test.
Children will be provided with both English and maths (online) homework, to help consolidate any new learning that has taken place through the week. As the year progresses the children will be asked to produce short pieces of writing related to current class topics or foci. There will also be opportunities to pursue project tasks which will help to develop their own inquiry and research skills. It is important that any piece of homework is completed to a high standard and your support in this would be very much appreciated. Opportunities will be provided at school for children to complete homework if they are unable to do it at home.
Punctuality and attendance is of great importance and therefore try to ensure your child is on time for school every day as lateness does disrupt learning opportunities.
School and lessons start at 8.55 am.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child please feel free to approach me at the end of the day. If I am not available or this is not convenient for yourself, then please make an appointment with me via the school office.
It is important to remember that you as parents are the prime educators of your child and therefore by working as a team together I aim to ensure your child reaches their full potential whilst in my care.
