The children in Class 6 are expected to set a good example to the rest of the school by being well behaved, punctual, organized, helpful and polite at all times. High standards of work are expected from them both in work completed at home and at school. Work that does not meet this standard will be repeated in their free time.
Part of a child’s development as a reader involves their selecting and discovering their own reading material. Children will bring home a book chosen from our reading corner or the school library. They will also participate in group reading sessions in school.As reading is a continuous learning process, children may occasionally bring home a text that is too difficult or too easy. You can assist with this process by discussing choices with them and encouraging them to select more appropriate material. Miss Milne also guides children in this process. Children are asked to read regularly, at least three times a week and fill in a reading diary entry.
The children have an exercise book in which they do their homework. Each child has a timetable showing the type of homework for each evening. On nights where specific homework is not set, the children are expected to use the time for reading and revision of tables. The children will bring home spellings which will be practiced in daily spelling sessions at school. Reinforcing these words at home daily will increase confidence and help children with daily spelling tests. Maths homework should be completed in pencil. Children must complete literacy homework in pen.
As part of the government-funded wider opportunities scheme, children in Class 6 will receive free instrumental tuition for the whole year. As part of their music lessons children will have the opportunity to learn the keyboards, as well as developing their skills in singing, composing, performing, listening and appraising.
If you need to speak to the class teacher about any aspect of your child’s schooling, please do not hesitate to make an appointment after school.
