Year 6 - Mr Heesome

Thank you for taking time to visit our class page. I hope you find all of the information below useful.


Who is my child's class teacher?


Class Teachers – Mr Heesome & Mrs Radcliffe 
Learning Support Assistants – Mrs Maloney 

Welcome to Year 6 - your final year in primary school is going to be a memorable one! 

There is so much to look forward to this year, including: being stretched and challenged, an exciting curriculum and amazing experiences. Your last year at Hindley J&I is going to be brilliant! 

Our goal as a class team is to ensure that the children have fun, work hard and make progress. We ask that all children try their hardest and push themselves to meet their potential. 

 

What time does school start and finish?


School starts at 8:50 (gates open at 8:40 with classroom doors opening at 8:45) and school ends at 3:15.
Children in Y6 are allowed to walk home alone BUT we do need written parental consent.
Remember: it's really important to be at school every day on time and ready to learn. 


When is school closed for holidays?


Please visit the term dates (https://www.hindley.wigan.sch.uk/Term%20Dates.html) section of our school website.


What will my child be learning this year?


In our English lessons we will be reading and enjoying a variety of books. Our class author is Michael Morpurgo. There are lots of his books available in our class library. We will also read a book called Clockwork by Philip Pullman, it has many twists and turns and I know the children will have a fantastic time creating many atmospheric pieces of writing. 

In maths lessons we will be working hard to ensure that we are using appropriate strategies and to promote independent thinking and learning; to develop even further the ability to problem solve.

When does my child have PE?


On Wednesdays and Thursdays, your child should come to school dressed in their PE kit and trainers. Please see the uniform page on our website (https://www.hindley.wigan.sch.uk/Uniform.html)

 

What should my child bring to school each day?


All stationery will be provided by school. Children do not need to bring any pens or pencils into school. Toys are not allowed to be brought into school from home.  
A drinks bottle (with water already in) with their name on. If sunny your child should come to school with sun cream already applied and a sun hat. 
Home/School Records need to be brought into school so home reading can be checked daily.
Spelling Record Books should be in school every Monday so that they can be checked and new spellings can be put in for the following week’s test.


What homework will my child get?


Daily reading for at least 10 minutes and diary signed by an adult – minimum 5 times a week.
10 spellings to be learned in readiness for the test on a Monday.
Maths homework book set and marked on Mondays.


Why is reading so important?


The importance of reading for children cannot be underestimated. Reading for pleasure can benefit a child’s education, social and cognitive development, their wellbeing, and their mental health. Reading is the bedrock of all learning.
Our class author is Michael Morpurgo. We will read a variety of his books throughout the year.
For more information about reading please visit our reading page on the school website (https://www.hindley.wigan.sch.uk/reading.html)
In preparation for high school, children in Year 6 change their books regularly and independently. This will be monitored carefully to ensure each child is reading an appropriately levelled text. They are expected to read a wide variety of genres and authors throughout the year.


How will I receive updates and messages from school?


Staff are always available at the end of the day to answer any quick questions or queries. Class Dojo is used as the main lines of communication throughout school, so please make sure that all parents/carers have a class dojo account set up and regularly check messages and updates. You can send direct messages to your child's class teacher via class dojo, but please be mindful that staff are teaching, so they will not always been able to message back immediately.
