Silkstone Primary School

A School with Soul

Welcome to Class Six


In class 6 our class teacher is Mrs Morgan and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hayes. We are a happy class and we encourage each other to be the best that we can be!

The children can receive a range of rewards for doing well. We have a marble jar and we can collect marbles when we are working well together as a team. Once we fill the jar, we have a class treat! The children can also earn certificates to be taken home or take an item from the goody bag for individual rewards. The sticker cards will still be used and stickers are given for trying really hard.

This year your child will be set a Reading Challenge. We hope that they will read with you at home three times every week. Please make a comment in your child’s reading record which is to be handed in on Fridays so we can track their progress towards this challenge. Spellings will be given on a Friday ready to be tested the following Friday. In year 6 individual times tables are practised and tested regularly. The tests are completed within a time limit so they require rapid recall. It is necessary to know the multiplication and division facts off by heart.

This year, P.E will be taught on Tuesdays so your child will need to come into school wearing a P.E kit every Tuesday. In art lessons we aim to get creative, which can usually be very messy! If you have a spare old shirt or apron, then we would really appreciate these being brought into school to keep your child’s school uniform clean this year.
