Trying Our Best and Aiming High


Autumn Term is a busy time of new experiences as the children settle into Y6 life.

Ways that you can help your child keep organised and

excel in their learning at school:

  • Avoid lost property by making sure ALL their possessions – especially coats, jumpers and PE uniform - are marked with their name.
  • Encourage your child’s growing independence by letting them begin to organise what they need each day for school.
  • Ensure they have their planners with them every day.
  • Listen to your child read for 15 minutes daily if possible; and ask them about their books. Please record what you read in their planner.
  • Practise maths skills in an enjoyable and informal way – e.g. number games, mental arithmetic, table facts and maybe even practically!
  • Encourage and support them to complete their Homework Challenges to a high standard - as independently as possible.  (Please ask your child’s teacher for any resources or support you may need.)


Keeping in Touch

  • Leave a message with the adult on the door in

the morning

  • Write a note in your child’s planner
  • Email us (email addresses in your child’s planner)
  • If a message is urgent or you wish to make an appointment; please contact the school office.

Times tables: We will be practicing our times tables to 12 x 12. These will be key to supporting our maths skills in year 6. Please check the Maths pages for more information and MyMaths homework links.
