The Westborough School



Welcome to class 6AH

Your class teacher is

Mrs Hall

Year 6 also have extra help

during the week from our TAs

Ruth Taylor and Jennie Cohen

and Year 6's Learning Support Assistant

Steve Arrowsmith.

We have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays

Your child must wear their PE kit to school on this day, as they are unable to change in class or the changing rooms. 

They are able to wear joggers, leggings or tights under their shorts on PE days, just in case the weather is not good. If they wear their jumper as usual they will be warm enough. 

Welcome to the summer term- it's great to see you!

The children settled really quickly on their return from the Easter break. As this is their last and final term of primary education, they have lots of work to complete to make sure transition into secondary school runs as smoothly as possible. Hopefully, there will be also be some time for fun activities towards the end of the term.

They continue to stay in their own classroom with Mrs Hall and TA Ruth. 

 

Homework is given out on Fridays and needs to be back in the Friday of the following week. It is also important that the children continue to learn their times tables and spellings, as they are given a spelling test every Monday. Also, they should be encouraged to read for 20 minutes every day. 

Thank you for your co-operation with your child's learning.
