Welcome to Year 6!
In Year 6 we have two classes - Russet and Sunrise Class.
In Russet class the teacher is Mrs Rathbone and the teaching assistant is Mrs Simmonds.
In Sunrise class the teacher is Mrs Armstrong and the teaching assistants are Mrs Francak and Miss Parker.
On a Thursday morning Russet class are taught by Mrs Ingram and Sunrise are taught by Mrs McLeish
Both classes also share the teaching assistant Mrs Francak in the afternoon.
In Term 2, Year 6 will have outdoor PE (TAG Rugby) on Wednesday afternoons and indoor PE (gymnastics) on Friday afternoons. As the weather has started to turn colder, please could you ensure your child has a tracksuit for outdoor PE. PE kits should be kept at school during term-time. We will send kits home for washing if they become particularly muddy or wet but otherwise they can remain in school.
For our TAG rugby sessions, the children are welcome to bring in old trainers or football boots if they have them as we will be using the field for the remainder of the term.
We are enjoying sharing our new text, Wonder, with both classes and the children are enjoying learning about August Pullman and the challenges he faces. Maths this term is all about Fractions! Rapid recall of times table facts to find lowest common multiples for like denominators or factors when simplifying is certainly coming in handy! Please ensure your child is logging on to Times Table Rockstars to improve their times table knowledge.
