Hello to Year 6 2020-2021!
We have an exciting year ahead of us and we can't wait to begin our new learning journeys with you.
Hopefully, when parents/carers opened their child's end of year 5 reports, they will all have found a copy of the 'Welcome to Year 6' letter in the envelopes. Detailed in the letter was lots of useful information about Year 6, some guidance for practising skills over the Summer break and the task 'Letter to my teachers'.
A copy of this letter can be downloaded by clicking the link below.
Please get in touch if you have any questions about anything at all by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Reading aloud to others - children to adults and adults to children - is an important part of our daily curriculum and building this into your home learning would be hugely beneficial.
You have your school reading books with you as well as additional ‘home’ books and these are a great starting point. If, however, you're looking for other ideas, the World Book Day website (https://www.worldbookday.com) has lots of fun ideas and creative and booky challenges that are well worth looking at. Additionally, the site also includes free audio-books (including full chapter books) that can be enjoyed by all the family. Try to read a variety of genres as well as non-fiction texts. Use the Year 6 genre challenge in the back of your reading records to help you.
