Year 6 is a fabulous year, full of wonderful and exciting opportunities to push children even further in their learning and in their own character. I am excited to support your child and help them make the most of their final year at Woodcote. We've had a great (and very busy) first half term in year 6 and now we are settled and ready to keep working hard!
We will have PE on Mondays and Thursdays. A Thursday session will continue to be outdoor so it is vital that children have the right kit and the right footwear to support them.
Please come and see me if you require any support with this.
Your child will receive their iLearn every other Thursday (and this first half term we've already been so impressed with the quality of work and ideas!) Starting from Autumn 2, the children will also receive a short Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling task and Mental Arithmetic task to have a go at. It is important to keep practicing these skills to raise their confidence - so please encourage your child to complete these at home.
Read. Read. Read. That would be my advice this year! Reading is fantastic - it helps to develop our imaginations, escape to new worlds, learn an incredible amount of new vocabulary and raises confidence in our writing. Please make sure your child brings their reading book to school every day so we can continue to assess their comprehension. We have a whole class read every week from our school book.
Thank you - Miss Tymon
