Monarchs (Year 6)

Welcome to Year 6


Our class is called Monarchs. We are taught by Miss Abbott and supported by Mrs Green.



Monarchs have PE lessons on Tuesdays. They are taught by PE specialist teachers from ASL Education as well as Miss Abbott. Children will need to wear their PE kit to school on Tuesdays and will remain in it all day. On Thursdays, Monarchs will be going swimming in the Autumn term. Please ensure that they have the correct kit so that they can successfully participate. 



Children in Monarchs will have the opportunity to visit the school library every Thursday. They will be able to choose a book to take home to read. If they need to change a book, please ensure that they have it in school on a Thursday.


Home Learning

Reading - Children are expected to read for at least ten minutes every day and should record this in their reading record. Your child's reading record must be handed in every Thursday. In year 6, children are not expected to always read to an adult, however a parent/carer will need to sign their reading record to show that they have read at home. We hope to see lots of children becoming Reading Ambassadors this year! 


Times Tables - Times tables (and the associated division facts) are a vital part of mathematical knowledge and understanding. It is crucial that your child practises these skills at home by logging onto the Times Table Rockstars website daily, for at least ten minutes.


English and maths - Children have three short English and three short maths tasks to complete each week. These should be completed in their home learning books. Home learning is set every Friday and should be handed in the following Wednesday.


Spelling - In school, we will teach the children spelling patterns and rules. At home, we would like the focus to be on learning and practising the Year 5 and 6 statutory spellings (you can find these by clicking on the spelling star at the top of this page and a few each week are included in your child's home learning book)

This week's (Friday 23rd September) home learning is...

Look what we’ve been up to in the Autumn term!
