General Expectations, Rewards and Sanctions
As with other year groups, we expect all children to try their best and work hard in the classroom and in lessons.
We always encourage the children to treat each other, and all adults, with respect and kindness. In accordance with the rest of the school, we follow the behaviour policy whereby positive behaviours are rewarded and negative behaviours sanctioned in a way appropriate to Key Stage Two.
Please see the on-line behaviour policy for further details.
We will continue to encourage greater independence and responsibility and hope that you will also support your child in achieving this. Although we expect a great deal from your child, we offer a huge amount of praise and recognition for effort, achievement and good behaviour as well.
Reading records and reading books are expected to be in school every day. During a week, a child is expected to complete at least 3 reads at home and have their reading record signed by an adult on each occasion. The reading record will be checked each Friday.
Home Learning - to be updated
Home learning will go home every week on a Thursday. It needs to be completed and returned by the following Tuesday. Home learning will alternate half-termly:
Autumn 1 - one piece of Maths Homework accompanied by ten spellings to learn.
Autumn 2 - one piece of English Homework (a reading comprehension) accompanied by a mental maths activity.
20 Books to read in Year Six
This year we have selected 20 must read books for Year Six and we hope that you will be able to support your child in reading these books over the course of the year. Most of the books are available in our school library or the local library. When your child has read a book from the list please sign to confirm that the book has been read.
