Year 6

Miss. D. Cohen - Year 6 Teacher 

 

Welcome to Year 6. We aim to make Year 6 the most productive, successful and enjoyable year ever! As this will be your child's last year at St. Margaret's, working hard and embracing all aspects of school life is something we will encourage them to do. We will help them to develop their independence, confidence and skills in order to move through the SATS and, later, on to high school. 

 

We have extremely high expectations and will expect everyone to work to the very best of their capabilities. Concentration and hard work will be the key to achieving the very best outcomes throughout the year. Year 6 will be expected to set good examples of behaviour and be positive role models for the younger children to follow. Our pupils will have the opportunity to take on extra roles and responsibilities, in and around school. In class, children should be prepared to work hard and always look to challenge themselves. We will be a fantastic TEAM!

Year 6 Class Information 

 

Home-Reading:

Our reading expectations are that the children should be reading at least 4 times a week and have their reading records signed. This is to help the children build up their reading stability, build up their confidence of segmenting and blending new sounds and also to develop a love of reading. Children have their reading records checked every day in school so that we can closely monitor home reading and will get 5 dojos for meeting their reading target; we fully understand that there are things that can come up during the week that can’t be helped. Please let the class teacher know if you are having any issues.

 

PE Day:

Our PE day is Thursday. Please come to school wearing your PE kit.
