Miss Reid Mrs Taylor
Welcome back! We hope you have had a wonderful summer holiday and are ready to work hard in your final year at Harlyn!
There is so much to look forward to:
-'Head Boy' and 'Head Girl' duties
Now that you are the eldest in the school, we expect you to set a wonderful example to those below you.
In year 6 we expect:-
- Pupils to have correct equipment for each lesson and to return homework on time.
- To have correct kit for indoor/outdoor PE and to undertake tasks with increasing independence.
- To prepare your child for secondary school, we will be implementing the same rules and sanctions as a secondary school would regarding lack of equipment and kit. No PE kit/ forgotten books/ no signed diary – detention.
Outdoor PE this term will be tag rugby and netball.
Indoor PE will be looking at cognitive skills for ball games.
Indoor PE: both classes have indoor PE on a Friday.
Outdoor PE: both classes have outdoor PE on a Monday.
Children are expected to read everyday; a reading record card will need to be completed each week and returned, signed by an adult every Monday. Spellings and English homework will be set every Wednesday and will be due in on the following Wednesday. Spelling tests will take place weekly on a Friday. Grammar homework is set on a Wednesday and returned on Friday (two days). Maths homework will be set every Tuesday and will be due in on the Tuesday of the following week. There is an expectation that children will additionally practise and learn by heart their multiplication and division facts.
