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 in the Spring term.
We will have PE on Mondays and Thursdays.
Please come and see me if you require any support with kit.
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!) Children have the opportunity to complete a short Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling task and Mental Arithmetic task too as additional homework tasks. 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 daily from our school book - this term it is Goodnight Mister Tom and Journey to the River Sea.
Thank you - Miss Tymon
