Welcome to Class 6J

Your Year 6 team is Mr Emes and Mr Jones, along with Mrs McDonough and Mrs. Prince.

Your Class Councillor is Mia Vyse.

Vice Class Councillor is Dilon Brock.


Year 6 homework will now return to a Mathletics certificate and at least 50 pages of reading each week.  Spellings, vocabulary and ideas for writing will all be improved if children can meet the Government recommendation of one reading book per week.

Please make sure that your child reads for at least 30 mins five evenings each week and makes a note of it in their reading journal, either at home or in school in the morning.  Also, it would be great if you had some time to discuss and share the book with your child.  We are really trying to promote reading for enjoyment and pleasure.  A record will be kept of the reading completed by your child and rewards can be earned.
