Teacher: Miss Thomas

Welcome to the Koalas Class!

Year 6 is an exciting year and one where every opportunity should be embraced. Some of the highlights include an adventure-packed week at Okehampton, dressing up as an evacuee from World War II, constructing a motorised vehicle and performing in the end of year production.

Weekly spellings, reading and maths will be sent home on Mondays. Homework needs to be completed and returned on the following Monday.

The children will discuss and mark their reading homework on Monday and their maths on Tuesday.


The maths homework will be based on the week's learning. Children should spend a maximum of 30 minutes on the task. If your child finds the task difficult, please encourage them to speak to the class teacher before the due date so they can have support. 


Children should read at least 4 times a week. They will have a weekly reading task to complete; this may either be a task for their reading journal (e.g. writing about a character in their book or doing extreme reading) or a reading comprehension.
