Mrs Winfield, Mrs Butler and Mrs Mitchison
Welcome to Year 6's page. Here we will keep you updated on what has been going on in Year 6 over the year - it's sure to be a busy one! At the bottom of this page you will find documents and links that you may find handy to use with your child.
Indoor PE kit consists of blue shorts, a yellow t-shirt and black pumps. For Outdoor PE lessons children will need a kit that will keep them sufficiently warm and dry so a tracksuit, trainers, clean socks and a lightweight waterproof jacket would be ideal. Both PE kits should be in school every day but the days we have our lessons are Wednesdays and Fridays.
This term we have Brent who is an FA coach team-teaching football with Mrs Winfield. We have loved the lessons with him so far!
In accordance with our Homework Policy, children will be set a piece of Maths and a piece of Literacy homework each week. This is alongside the expectation that children will read at home at least three times per week (with a comment written into their reading diaries) and will learn their statutory spellings. A clear deadline for homework will be given. Children who return their homework on time and completed to the expected standard will receive house tokens. If an Internet connection is required and it not available at home, children will be able to attend homework club to ensure that they complete their homework. Should any children not return their homework on time, it will be expected that they will complete it of a lunch time.
Don't forget to return your Maths 30 Day Summer Challenge in September to receive your house tokens and certificate!
Back to School!
We've had a great start to the school year. Over summer holidays children received their letters inviting them to start 'Brownhills West School of Witchcraft and Wizardary'. Many children came to school dressed in their best wizarding attire! So far in Year 6 we have completed various tasks linked to the Harry Potter theme including writing a spell or a potion for the perfect year. Once these have been typed up, you will be able to read them below. Keep your eyes peeled!
