Welcome to Year 6

In Year 6, you will find Miss Stuart, Mr Halford, Miss Elkes and Miss Speck.  They also receive added support from Mrs Lakhani.

 

Homework.

We expect the children to read at home every night and complete their reading record.

Maths homework is sent home on Monday and to be returned on Friday.

Spelling homework is sent out on Monday, to be returned on Friday.

As we move through the year, comprehension and grammar homework may also be set.
