It is a warm welcome to all Year 6parents and children. It is fantastic to be part of your school and the first weeks have been fantastic. I look forward to the upcoming terms and hope they will be memorable for you all.
Thank you to all of our Year 6 parents who have signed up to our Class Dojo. It is an excellent way of sharing information about what we have been doing in class each week and as a means of communication with you all on an individual basis. We hope that you also find it useful to keep track of your child's learning attitudes and behaviours. It is wonderful to see that across Key Stage Two we are having so many interactions with parents through Dojo: we know how difficult it is to speak to working parents face-to-face each week.
Welcome to Year 6 - Swordfish Class!

You can keep in touch with the homework tasks set via Class Dojo.
Homework will generally consist of a weekly maths task, which may be paper based or on the computer using ixl. Any additional practice that is made at home through ixl and Times Table Rock Stars will aid progress in this important year. It is essential that everyone knows their times tables facts (there is a link to an excellent website with multiplication games at the bottom of this page).
There will usually be an English task too, which will typically be a grammar activity, as well as spellings. It is important to spend a few minutes each day practising spellings as little and often is the best way to retain information. Of course, reading often and as much as possible is the key to success in English. The best readers generally have the best ideas for writing. Reading opens the mind to new wonders...
