Y6 Hedgehogs

Welcome to Hedgehog Class!

 

 

Class picture here

 

 

 

Welcome to our class of 30 wonderful Year 6 children, our teacher isn't too bad either! We're a very tight knit bunch and always look out for one another whilst we are at school. We know that sticking together with each other is a great thing to do. Teamwork makes the dreamwork!

 

We're lucky enough to have some fantastic staff members with us in our team, they are:

Mr McCarthy - Class Teacher

Mrs Edwards - Teaching Assistant

Mrs Read - Teaching Assistant

Mrs Ashton - Teaching Assistant 

 

 

We are all in Hedgehog class but there's nothing spikey about us, click the link below to find out how you can help Hedgehogs in your garden. The numbers are declining rapidly and are now on the endangered species red list.

This replaces our usual in school event and includes things your child will be learning about this term.

Homework

 

 

Homework will be set once a week and will include MyMaths, Spag.com, written tasks and much more. The homework will be set on a Friday and they'll be given a week to complete it.

 

If the children get into the routine of completing homework now, then the jump to secondary school when they will receive much more homework won't be as difficult for them. A lot of year 6 is about preparing the children for secondary school so we'll encourage them to use their diary to record any homework and whenever they read. Please encourage your children to use their diary and sign it each week, this will also help you get into the routine for signing at secondary as we're told they get in trouble if the diary isn't signed!
