Year 6 2018 - 2019

Miss Finch

Hello and welcome to our Year 6 class page

The children have been working so hard over the Autumn term and we're already seeing huge improvements in all of our different skill areas. Miss Finch and Mrs Brooks have been very impressed.

Starting this Spring half term we will be running different booster sessions both before and after school. Whilst these sessions will usually be by invite only, if you are struggling with something and need some extra help please come and speak to Miss Finch and she will arrange a time for you. 

Don't forget: I expect every child to be reading at least 3 times per week. Reading can develop vocabulary, writing skills, comprehension - and it's also really fun!!!

Homework will now be handed out on a Monday and Thursday and expected in the following Monday. We will be encouraging children to mark their own homework to demonstrate what specific mark schemes are asking them for.
Year 6: If you ever encounter a piece of homework which you find too tricky (whether it be just one question or a whole page) please do not sit and spend to long getting frustrated. 
Instead, follow these simple steps:

1.) Spend no longer than 5 minutes looking at the question. Could you highlight the important information? Could you read it in a different way?
2.) Ask an adult at home for some help.

3.) If you're still unsure, come into school and speak to Miss Finch or Mrs Brookes about the question. We will always squeeze in some extra support for you and try to explain it for you.
MOST IMPORTANTLY: Never spend your evening or weekend stressing over a question on a piece of homework!!!!


If you have any questions or queries please don't hesitate to arrange a meeting with me to discuss.
