Hello everyone, my name is Mrs Newbegin and I am the class teacher in Year Six.
This year, I am fortunate enough to be supported by twowonderful teaching assistants: Mrs Tate and Mrs Reynolds.
Between us, our aim is to support your child in fulfilling their true potential.
If you ever need to talk to us about anything, our door is always open.
As we are studying Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets as our first English topic this year, the children will be sorted into a house where they will be able to earn rewards independently and as part of a team. Please feel free to keep an eye on the house points board, which is located in our classroom, to see how your child's house is faring throughout the year.
As a school, we subscribe to several websites to aid and improve your child's learning: Time Tables Rockstars, an interactive game to practice times tables on and ReadTheory, a website filled with comprehension style activities. All children should have their details for TT Rockstars already and will receive their login information for the other Read Theory when we return in September.
Please practise the Year 3/4 Spellings with your children.
Please practise the Year 5/6 Spellings with your children.
Please read with your child daily (even if it is just for 5 minutes) and fill in their reading record. This will drastically boost their confidence and have a positive affect on their attainment.
We have also signed up to www.oxfordowl.co.uk
This website allows the children to read an amazing selection of free Ebooks
at home on their phone, tablet, Ipad, laptop or computer!
