Class 6J 2017 - 2018

Mr Jones

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 be given out on Mondays and reviewed on Fridays.  Children will need to learn their spellings and focus times tables, have five entries in his/her reading journal (50 pages per week minumum, please), and earn a Mathletics certificate.

Spelling tests (5 spellings only to encourage deeper learning) and speed times table tests are done on a Friday.  Try to complete 12 x 12 grids regularly.  Children in Year 6 must know all their times tables facts (multiplication and division) and number bonds instantly.

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.
