Welcome To Taruca Class!
Welcome to Year 6 - the last year of primary school – let’s make it great!
We are so excited about our new year in school and we have an amazing group of Year 6 children ready for the year ahead. In Taruca, children are expected to work hard and support each other throughout. The children will be given many opportunities to deepen their understanding and take control of their own learning. We have lots of exciting learning planned as well as engaging experiences to support the children’s learning.
Reading at home is vital and, even in Year 6, it is important to listen to your child read regularly and also share stories together. The children will bring home a class reading book from school and a reading record to keep track of where they are in their book. Last year, we had Reading Scrapbooks to complete activities to show their understanding of the text they had read. This will continue but this year the children will be doing this in their homework book. The children also have spellings they need to focus on and practice each week. The children are expected to use the school apps for homework. They should visit Times Tables Rockstars and Spelling Shed as often as possible and also have access to Zumos, Epic Reading, Purple Mash and Reading Eggs. Links to these sites can be found on our Homework Websites page of the school website and the children have all been sent home their logins.
I look forward to spending more time with the children and getting to know them over this year. Please contact me if have any worries or concerns either through the contact form below or via Teams.
