Welcome to Year 6!
A very warm welcome to your child's final year at primary school. I am looking forward to getting to know you and working with your son/daughter over the coming term. Our class focus will be on transitioning into Y6, working independently and making good choices. We will be settling into the rules and routines of the classroom and getting back into the swing of things after a long summer holiday. My hope is that they will have a fun and busy term filled with worthwhile projects and learning opportunities. Full details of the curriculum content can be found on the curriculum outline tab.
Mrs Coombes will be working with our class working alongside and supporting the children where necessary. Mrs Coombes has taught at the school for many years and as an experienced HLTA she has a wealth of knowledge and experience.
We look forward to sharing the learning together with your child!
Please note there has been a change to the PE day as RHS Sports Leaders will be coming into school to support our children. PE will now be on a Wednesday and Thursday. We will continue to swim on a Wednesday during PE for the first half of the term. Please send your child to school dressed in PE kit on a Wednesday but remember to send in a swim kit and towel.
Please also come into school in PE kit each Thursday.

Homework is important to consolidate the children’s learning and also to prepare them for secondary school.
Homework always follows the same routine each week for ease. Spellings are issued on a Monday and tested on the following Monday along with an extra English and maths task. These will be available on Google classroom and sent home in a homework book on a Tuesday. Children are expected to read aloud four times per week and if possible to an adult to also help with their reading fluency and understanding of a text. All homework is sent in a homework book with the spellings listed each week. Children are invited to cover their homework books with a covering of their choice. If for any reason the book is 'lost' then extra copies of the homework are available in class and posted onto the google classroom for ease.
ROK Homework and Learning Together
The ROK homework this term is based on our class topic of the Mayans. We would like to invite you to come into school on Friday 14th October at 2.15pm for a practical session to assist your child in creating a plan to build a Mayan god. We will have all the crafting materials available and we look forward to sharing this fun and valuable time together with you. Please see additional information on the River of Knowledge homework page on how you can help at home.
Games & activities plea
If you have any unwanted board games or activities at home that you wish to donate, please feel free to send into school. I would like to build up a bank of wet play activities for the Autumn term and any donations would be gratefully received. Please only send in games with all of the pieces in tact.
With kind regards
Mrs Cooper & Mrs Coombes
