Welcome to Year 6

Autumn Term 2018

Hello, my name is Mr. Eccleston and I am the Deputy Headteacher and Year 6 class teacher. 

Teachers in Year 6 

Apart from myself, Mrs. McLean will teach the class on a Thursday when I will be having my teaching and management non-contact time. The children will be supported during the week by our fantastic teaching assistant Mrs. Forsyth.

I expect each child to read for at least one session every day and they each have a reading record and book they can bring home daily. Reading a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts is encouraged as is a range of classical and modern authors. Talking and questioning your child about what they have read helps develop comprehension skills, particularly inference, so the children gain a greater depth and understanding. 'Why do you think...?' questions are a good starting point. Using a dictionary and thesaurus is another important skill for your child to develop as it helps expand their understanding and vocabulary range. I ask you to encourage your child to read each day and talk to them about their book. Could you also please date and sign the reading record when they have read to you. If your child is a reluctant reader then comics, magazines or information leaflets might spark their interest! Reading an interactive ebook on a tablet is another option.

Star of the week

Each week a child will be chosen as the 'Star of the week', for exceptional behaviour and effort and they will be presented with an award during the good work assembly at 2:30pm. Other weekly awards children can achieve are: 'The Times Tables Champion', and for 'Good work'. If your child has been chosen we will contact you via text message so you can come along.

General reminders

PE this half term is every Wednesday and Thursday, and I ask that the correct kit is in school for these lessons. Children will be provided with spellings each Friday and tested on them the following Friday. Talk homework will be given out most Wednesdays with 'The Big Write' on the Friday. If you could spend a few minutes going through the question with your child this would be most beneficial. Children will also receive weeky English and Maths homework, either web based (passwords are in the homework diary book) or through workbooks and projects.

I hope this is of use and if you have any queries please come and see me.

Kind regards,

Mr. Eccleston.
