Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

You will be greeted by:

Miss L Hughes – Teacher

Mrs S De Souza-Shah – HLTA

Mrs D Walford – Teaching Assistant

The final year of the children’s journey through primary education at John Randall. In Year 6 we have the same expectations to be Ready, Respectful and Safe at all times as previous year groups. As role models, it is our job to show the rest of the school how this is done! With extra responsibilities come extra benefits such as a residential trip to Arthog. With that in mind, have fun, work hard, and make the most of your final year at John Randall.

Homework

Homework at John Randall is based on supporting our learning in the classroom.

Our most important piece of homework is READING (Reading takes you places!)  Reading is at the heart of everything we do, so we need to use Practice Panda to get better at this skill!  The more you read, the more you succeed!

Adults, please read with your child, 3 times per week (or more if you can!)  3 Parents signatures in the reading diary is worth 15 Dojos!

Time Tables Rockstars! Again, Practice Panda and Memory Magpie this time!  When you know your Times Tables, you can make so many links and Maths simply gets easier!

Finally, weekly spellings.

We do not set a lot of homework, but we do ask that we make these activities an important part of our home/school life!

I am out on the playground every morning for a quick chat or you can also contact me via email: lauren.hughes@taw.org.uk

Times Table Rock Stars

Thank you to all the parents who joined us for our launch of Times Tables Rock Star in school.
