Miss Marr & Mrs Katterloher

Welcome to our Year 6 page!

Below, you will find a letter telling you all about Year 6 and some of the topics we will be covering during our time together.

 

English and Maths homework will be given out on a Friday and will should be returned by Wednesday. Each week, we will look at a different spelling rule and have lots of fun practising them. You will also be expected to learn these spellings at home ready for a mini test on Friday.

We will have reading lessons each week where we will focus on reading comprehension, but we encourage you to read outside of school. Feel free to bring your own book from home or browse the school or Miss Marr's library (a collection of her favourite reading books!).
