My name is Miss Watkinson and Miss Martin and Mrs Mason are your teaching assistants.
This year will bring lots of new experiences and excitement in your final year of primary school!
Each half term we will begin a new topic, which many of our subjects will be linked to. Please see the Topic Web link below to see what we will be learning across each of our subjects this half term.
As a big part of being in Year 6 is the completion of SATs in May, children will only bring a homework grid home for the first half term. After this, each child will be provided with a KS2 SATs Buster booklet (one for maths and one for English). Children will be given a expected number of pages to complete in a week. Please encourage them to do them do do these; they will help them immensely!
Five spellings will be given out each Monday and your spelling test will be on the following Monday. Please practice these as much as possible!
Talk homework will be given out every Thursday, to practice at home with a family member that evening. Please aim to talk about the talk topic for 10 minutes each week to help prepare your child for their writing task the following day.
Our PE lessons are every Wednesday and Thursday but please ensure you have your PE kit in each day in case of need.
Please bring your book bag into school each day, however books are changed every Friday. Please make sure these are signed or they will not be changed.

At Our Ladys we are always pleased to meet our parents, I will be available to talk to you any day before 8.45 and after school. If you would like me to ring you please leave a message at the school office.
Each year we pair our Year 6 pupils (Gardeners) with the children in the Reception Class (Seeds). The job of the Gardeners is to nurture the Seeds and ensure that they grow into children our school will be proud of. We have a Mass and a Celebration Assembly to mark this pairing which is always a joyous event.
