Welcome to Year 6!
The class teachers in this year group are: Mrs Silk, Mrs Scott, Mrs Loveridge and Ms Chapman. Other Adults could be Mrs McLaren, Miss Kauser, Mrs Khan, Mrs Kaur, Mrs Chevers, Mrs Begum.
This is an important year for children in Year 6, as they gear up for SAT's tests and prepare for life after Primary School. SAT tests will be taking place from the week beginning Monday 11th May. It is VITAL that your child attends school this week and sits every test. If they are ill please bring them in at least until the test is completed. (These have been cancelled this year due to the COVID19 -coronavirus outbreak in the UK)
HOMEWORK! Your child will get Maths and English homework every Friday, to be completed by the following Tuesday. They will also have spellings to learn. Each child has their own password for Reading Eggs, Education City and Purple Mash where they may have homework set. Your children may also access these sites to practice their Reading skills and enjoy educational games. We have purchased Reading Plus this year and all children are expected to read 5 books and complete a vocabulary task each week - this is closely monitored by teachers.)
Reading at Cape is very important and we send children home with a reading book, which should be read at home and discussed with parents. They can then be changed when completed in school. Children also have access to books weekly from the school library, which can be taken home and read. Children have a reading session with the class teacher and one with the class LSP every week. Two or three reading plus sessions are timetabled each week so that children have the opportunity to complete part of this scheme in school time - the rest will need to be completed at home.
P.E. Please make sure your child has their P.E. kit in school EVERYDAY. We have 2 PE sessions a week and there may be other occasions where P.E. kit is needed.
