Welcome to Year 6 – Class Hornbeam

In Hornbeam we work as a team and learn together every day. We are going to have an amazing year and we have so many wonderful things to look forward to. I know many children worry about their SATs but we will revisit and practice all topics and areas that may arises in the tests throughout the year – there really is nothing to worry about!

During the Autumn term we will be reading many books together, which we use for our English lessons. These include The Nowhere Emporium by Ross MacKenzie and Survivor – Titanic by Stephen Davies.

We will also be learning about the events which occurred before, during and after WWI and WWII and the roles of men, women, children and animals altered throughout this period of time.

We will have PE twice a week on a Monday and a Thursday afternoon.

Homework will be set each week on a Friday and must be submitted on Showbie ready for Wednesday morning or a paper copy brought back into school on a Wednesday. Children will also be expected to read at home 3 times a week – this is to be recorded onto Showbie or the children can read to a member of staff in school should their iPads remain in school.

Children MUST bring their iPads fully charged each day into school.

We hope you enjoy your time with us in Year 6 and we look forward to the year ahead.

Mrs McDowell and Miss Groome
