Year 6 News

Week Beginning: Monday 14th September 
Hope you all had a lovely weekend, after the first full week back at school. Your child will have been given  a letter regarding the Year 6 residential to Dearne Valley in February 2021. This explains when payments can be made and more information about the trip. Nearer the time, we will hold a meeting telling you more details about our exciting week away. 


You will also have received an email from the school office with a link to join the Year 6 Google Classroom. Please can you click on the link and sign up to the classroom...currently we have a class of 12 and there are 35 Year 6 children! We will begin to set homework on this once we have everyone joining. 


Children are working incredibly hard and still motivated in all there subjects, it is a pleasure to teach them and see such enthusiasm each lesson. In the Home Learning section please look at the video to support your children with long multiplication. We are moving onto learning how to answer long division questions in maths this week. In English with Miss Cohen, children are continuing to study the book Goodnight Mr Tom and with Mr Longworth, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. Both of these texts link in well with our topic of WW2 this term. Please continue to ensure your child is reading regularly at home and completing homework by the due date.

Good evening parents, 


I just wanted to introduce myself. I am Miss Cohen and I will be teaching your children on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Last week, I had the pleasure of meeting your wonderful children and I feel very lucky to be working with such a polite, lovely and hard working class. I had a fantastic first few days and I hope they did too. I am really excited about the year ahead and looking forward to meeting you all throughout the year.


Miss Cohen :)
