Staff in Year 6: Mr. P Smith & Mrs. K John
Hello all and welcome to the Year 6 page, I am so excited for this year to begin and cannot wait to get stuck in to year 6 life. Mrs. John and I are looking forward to working with you all and helping you progress in your learning journey. We will strive to ensure you are well-placed, ready and prepared for life in comprehensive school next year.
The circumstances surrounding this year are certainly different, we will have to adapt to new challenges and work in new and different ways. Having everyone back in the classroom together is something that Mrs. John and I are looking forward to tremendously, we are going to have a fun and exciting year. Make it your best one yet, pob lwc pawb!
Vile Victorians. You have already stated what you would like to learn during this term in our EPIC (Everyone Planning In Class) sessions. Please see the flowchart and the newsletter sent for this term.
In Key Stage 2, we have two sessions of PE a week. Please make sure you are wearing suitable outdoor clothing and trainers for these sessions. We have our sessions on a Tuesday and a Thursday. There may be times where the nature reserve may be utilised also, and it might be a little muddy in the Autumn months. Please help us by reminding Mums and Dads to work with us and make sure you understand that footwear may be a little muddy at times.
We will not be taking part in swimming sessions until we have received further information.
Reading At Casllwchwr, we do many forms of reading:
Guided reading in groups and whole class (same text for whole group - decided by the teacher with lots of talk involved teaching objectives)
Shared (paired, group and whole class)
Independent (own choice)
Please make sure you bring your reading books into school every day. Use your Reading Eggs account as much as you can. I understand it may be hard for Mums and Dads to hear you read every night, so be independent and read to yourself when they can’t. Try to alternate it as much as possible and try to read a range of books.
Mondays: Literacy homework given out on Mondays and brought in on the Friday.
Numeracy homework set on Mondays due on Fridays via mymaths - the link is below.
Reading every night for 20 minutes
Oracy Projects: 1 in the Autumn linked to topic and 1 in the Summer, linked to topic.
These need to be something that you are interested in.
Mr Smith will endeavour to reply as soon as possible.
