The final days of Y6 2017-18



Welcome to Minotaur class

We are the Year 6 pupils






Our  PE days this half-term will be Tuesdays (dance with Lauren) and Thursdays (games with Mr Roberts). Please ensure PE kits are in school on these days.


Homework will continue to be given out each Friday and should be returned to the 'homework' drawer by the following Wednesday. Spellings will be tested and new spellings will be given out each Monday. A reminder of both homework and spellings for each week can be found on the class page of the school website.  We cannot stress enough how important it is for pupils to be reading quality novels at home. As a guide, we suggest pupils read for 15 minutes at home each day in order to increase their fluency, develop their vocabulary and improve comprehension skills. If you would like any suggestions of reading lists, please just ask!
