YEAR 6

Mr Otterson

Welcome back to school.  I hope you all had a restful break and are ready for the challenges ahead.  It is always an amazing feeling being part of year 6 and everything that it holds for you over the next 10 months.  There are lots of things to look forward to including: house days like the cross country event, day trips to Eden camp for our World War Two topic and of course our fantastic trip to Robinwood on November 20th.  Besides this, there will of course be lots of challenging work to complete across the curriculum, but I have every confidence that you will do your best and achieve great things this year.  Please try to remember to bring your reading book every day for Accelerated reader and try to read as much as possible at home – this includes out loud to a grown up.  Don’t forget to check your active learning maths page for homework updates and enjoy the puzzles and tasks your teacher has set.  I am sure we will have a great time together in year 6.  Good luck everyone!
