My name is Mrs O’Neill and I am the Year 6 teacher. We are very lucky to be supported by Ms. Smith, who also works closely with groups of children.
This year, we have lots of exciting learning planned – you can find out what we will be doing by clicking on the ‘Long Term Plan’ button below.
PE: Y6 will be doing PE on a Monday afternoon – please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit for the day.
At Holy Cross, we are incredibly passionate about fostering a love of reading in all children. We also know how difficult it can be to choose reading books for your child, which is why we have created ‘recommended reads’ for each year group. Click on the button below for more information.
In year 6, homework is of particular importance as the children will be preparing to sit their end of Key Stage 2 SATs in May.
All children are expected to practise their times tables each night on Times Tables Rockstars for at least 5 minutes. They are also expected to read each night, either their own reading book or on Read Theory, for at least 20 minutes.
Additional homework will be given as and when I feel it will be beneficial for the children. During the summer term, homework in maths and English is likely to increase to ensure that all Y6 children are prepared for the SATs tests.
As you know, reading is a huge focus in our school and it can have a fantastic impact on children’s learning across the different curriculum areas.
In class 6, reading records should be completed daily by parents/carers and can be done by clicking on this link: https://forms.gle/bBgUPmwh2quoE7Nx8
