Welcome to Year 6! We can’t wait to teach you this year. This is your last ever year at WTLA and it’s going to be the best yet!

 

Adults who will be helping you this year: Mrs Ring, Mr Thomas, Mrs Driscoll, Mr Todd, Ms Percival-Haines, Ms Doughty, Mr Evans, Mrs Wallace (Tuesday PM – 6KT), Mrs Harris (Every other Tuesday PM – 6P-H) and Mrs Thatcher.

Maths and English groups – Ms Doughty will be taking a small group for English and Maths for four mornings a week. She will be teaching the same lessons as the rest of Year 6. This is being done to reduce class size and give all children more teacher time.

Back to School Night – 12.09.17 – 3.30pm

Appointments – We would love to talk to you. Please contact the office if you’d like to make an appointment. Reading records are also an excellent communication method. Please ask your child to show us any message you wish us to see.

Homework – We will be setting English and Maths homework once a week along with 10 spellings, taken from the DfE lists. We also expect you to work continually on your times tables and arithmetic skills – this is very important and will be tested every week.

Project – Our first project of the year is called ‘How Many Wives?’ and it’s all about life in Tudor Britain. We always love to hear about anything you have discovered in your own time. Here is something to get you started:

Swimming – We begin our swimming lessons on Monday 11th September and they will continue until November 13th. All three classes will be going on Monday mornings. This will be our PE slot so kits will not be needed until swimming has ended.
