Sharks (Year 6) 2021 - 2022

Welcome to Sharks class page!

 

We are all very excited to be back and look forward to a fantastic, hopefully uninterrupted year ahead!

This year PE will be on a  Wednesday and a Thursday. We ak that the children have the correct clothes for PE including tracksuit bottoms for the winter months.

Homework will be set on a Monday to be handed in the following week. Homework will be  mixture of online  work as well as practical activities. The children will be expected to read as regularly and learn their  weekly spellings.

If you have any issues throughout the year you can contact me on

We are delighted to offer the whole school a brand new resource to use in school and at home. MyOn is a bank of digital books of  variety of genre. 

Encourage your children to login wit thei user names and password and get reading. There will be projects for them to enter in to for their homework linked to the readig they can do in the program.
