Toucans - Year 6 2022 - 2023

Miss Cowie

Welcome to Toucans' class and our class page.  

I hope you have all had a lovely and restful summer break and are looking forward to the term ahead as we all venture into Year 6 together.

Here is a brief overview of the areas of learning that we will be focusing on this half term.

Curriculum Learning Autumn Term 1

Please ensure that your child brings in the correct P.E. kit and trainers every Monday morning and that it stays in school for the week. During the Autumn term, it is advisable that children bring warm tracksuit joggers, a zip-up hoodie or jumper, and possibly a warm hat for when we venture outside on cold days. Please make sure that your child has the correct school P.E. kit and that it is labelled clearly, so lost items can be returned to their rightful owner. Please also provide a water bottle and waterproof coat for your child every day as we never know what the weather might do!

Toucans will be taught by Mrs Austin on a Friday morning. 

Reading, Spelling and Maths homework will be set each Friday afternoon to be handed in the following Wednesday. This may be online homework for your child to complete via online learning platforms or paper based written work in a book that will be provided. I will message parents each Friday so that you are clear on what the expectations are for that week.  Please support your child with completing their homework and handing it in on time as this both supports their learning and prepares them for what is to come at high school. 

Daily reading is essential for all children and in Upper KS2 and we advise that you read for 15-20 minutes per day with your child, no matter their proficiency level. Whilst listening to your child, try to ask them questions about events that have happened so far, characters thoughts and motives and to make accurate predictions and inferences based on the text as well as the meanings of words within it.

To keep up to date with what is happening in our class, make sure you regularly check our school's Twitter feed.
