Owls & Leopard class
Hello and welcome to Year 6!
We hope you have all enjoyed a fantastic summer and soaked up the sunshine. Hopefully now everyone is feeling refreshed and ready for a brand new year. We are looking forward to working with yourselves and your children and taking on the new and exciting challenges in the year ahead.
In this newsletter you’ll find information about the learning that will be taking place across both classes.
Mr Lockerby, Mrs Betts and Mrs Salisbury.
We’ll be reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to help with our writing. Also, we will be carrying out reading
comprehension and SPAG sessions each week .

New spelling words will be given to practise and learn each Monday. On the following Monday children will be tested to check their progress. We will focus on specific spelling patterns during the week in class.
We will hand out a piece of maths and literacy homework each week when appropriate - usually on a Wednesday - which needs to be handed in by the following Wednesday.
Occasionally, we may set a piece of homework to support other curriculum work we are doing in class.
In addition, try numerous fun educational games and learning resources at:
Each child will be set a points target which is related to the number of words in books they are expected to read each term. A quiz will be taken when a book is finished, to check comprehension.
To move up a level, every child will be expected to complete five quizzes scoring at least 80% on each quiz. A minimum of15 minutes reading is expected most evenings during the week.
