Hello and welcome to Year 6!
We are looking forward to a wonderful year ahead. Year 6 is the opportunity to celebrate the learning journey that we have been part of throughout our time at Holy Family. Our class has worked incredibly hard over the past 6+ years, so now it’s our time to shine.
Throughout Year 6 we will continue to develop the children’s independence, resilience and love of learning through many exciting curricular opportunities.
Due to our fast-paced curriculum and high expectations, we encourage all our children be active learners and take pride in every aspect of their education.
Homework is always sent out on a Friday and is due in on the following Friday. Children are expected to complete the following:
Spelling practice: includes writing a definition and a sentence for each word on their list. Please encourage your child to write interesting sentences, use punctuation and neat, joined handwriting.
Read with an adult at least three times a week: minimum of 10 pages at a time (reading record needs to be signed to show this)
As a school, we subscribe to Reading Plus, Times Table Rock Stars and Maths Whizz. These are wonderful programmes and when used regularly, will significantly help children to progress.
All children have unique log in details to gain access at home and it is recommended that children aim to use them at home 2/3 times per week. Please note, these programs are designed to be done independently so no help should be given. This way, the program will adapt to best suit your child’s needs.
As always, thank you for your continued support
