Year 6 - Rashford

Welcome to Year 6!


Welcome to Year 6! I cannot wait to get started for what is going to be an extremely exciting, busy and positive year.


Please take a look at the long-term plan in the Curriculum Planning section of the website to find out what topics we are covering subject by subject; hopefully the members of Rashford Class will be coming home telling you about their learning and will teach you a thing or two!


As usual, I would like to remind you about the importance of hearing your child read every night, if you can, but on a minimum of 4 occasions in the week, if time is short. We shall be continuing with the Reading Championship competition as it seems to be such a great motivator so, by the end of the year, your child might be sporting 6 badges.


PE lessons will be taken by the brilliant Mr Parsons on Tuesdays and we will be starting Swimming lessons on Fridays (beginning 15th September) so please make sure you child comes to school in their kit on those days to maximise learning time.


Homework in Year 6 consists of a weekly spelling list or investigation, some Maths work and some English work. There will be the occasional piece of topic homework.


Should you have any queries, please come and see me in the Year 6 classroom, or give the school a ring to arrange a meeting. I look forward to getting to know the wonderful Year 6 students and their families.


Many thanks.


Mr Foster
