Welcome to Year 6!

Miss Hopwood is the class teacher and Mrs Hopwood is our teaching assistant.

Our first topic will be ‘Magnificent Maya’.  If you would like to do any research into this ancient civilization, I would love to see or hear it!

Please encourage your child to use Spelling Shed to help them to learn their weekly spellings.  Each child has been given their own login which was sent home in their homework folder.

We try to build ‘quizzing’ time into our week as much as possible.  Please continue to encourage your child to read.  Below you can find a link which provides information on how parents can help their Year 6 child with reading.  There is also a link for recommended reads for this age group.

All children are allowed to bring a named water bottle into school.  This should only contain water.

Year 6 had two very interesting and successful sessions with the team from WIRED (Ways to Identify Risk of Exploitation and Danger) who came to discuss staying safe on the internet, especially when using social media.

We hope that the children have discussed these sessions with you.  If not, please ask your child to tell you what they have learnt.
