Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

The Year 6 children will be in the classroom with myself (Mr Smith) and Miss McGough. Here is a little more about us both:

Mr Smith - Hello! Welcome to Year 6 and your final year of primary school! This year will be tough but it will also be your most enjoyable at school yet. I have worked at Catchgate since 2014 and have taught Year 1, Year 3 and Year 6. My favourite subjects are PE, science and history. Outside of school, my life mainly revolves around my family but any free time I have is spent watching/playing football (or any other sport except golf!).

Miss McGough - Hi! I am so excited to be your teaching assistant again for another year! We have already shared so much laughter and made lots of great memories as a class and I can’t wait to make many more! I love sport and I teach a lot of classes P.E lessons within school. Football is my favourite sport. I also love dancing! Although I may not be very good, I’m sure you will see me dancing a lot throughout the year. My favourite thing to do is spend time with family, friends and of course my dog and rabbit who you all helped me name.

Class Expectations:

  • Children will try their best to improve themselves in all aspects. 
  • Reading Records and Spelling books to be brought to school and taken home every day. (Replacements can be bought from the office)
  • Children will read as much as possible and this should be recorded in Reading Records.
  • Children will bring Forest School and swimming kits in on the correct days.
  • PE kit to be in school Monday-Friday.

 

Homework is a points based system for all subjects. The children have 10 weeks to complete enough activities to gain a minimum of 100 points. These can be completed on the Class Notebook or on paper. The activities are below, on the Class Notebook and a paper copy can be requested if needed.

 

Spellings are given on a weekly basis (these will be written in their spelling books but also on the Class Notebook) and will be tested on Fridays. 

 

Class Notebook is an online platform which we use in school for most lessons but also for homework. Below is a link to our Class Notebook, which you can access using your child's unique username and password - this will be stuck in your child's Reading Record alongside other passwords they may need for other online platforms I recommend.

Rights Respecting Schools Award

Our school has a continued commitment to helping children learn about and understand their rights. Here are the individual rights we will be exploring across the school linking to our weekly themes in the Autumn term. Please ask your children about these articles and speak with them about how they impact them at home too.
