Well done


Well done to all - who will be the stars next week?

CLASS DOJO is our new app for behaviour celebrations and rewards in school. You can download the CLASS DOJO app on your mobile phone or tablet now using your unique code from Miss Higginbottom. Class Dojo is a brilliant way of allowing you to see how your child is doing at school every single day. We challenge all of the children in 6AH to be '100% green' and the more green dojo points earned the more prizes to be earnt too. Within 6AH, the first child to reach 100 dojos in the year will get a prize! Good luck! 

Each child in 6AH will be given a homework book that will have the entire amount for the half term. This will be given on a Wednesday and expected in on a Monday. The children have a reading page to complete, maths and PaG (punctuation and grammar). If your child is struggling with the homework please contact Miss Higginbottom or your child is more than welcome to attend homework club on a Thursday from 3:30 - 4:30.


Our class are focusing on our times tables for homework.

We are testing the children across three standards: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Bronze: You can say the times tables in order.

Silver: You can answer questions out of order.

Gold: You can answer questions using the division facts for the times tables.



Reading is fun!

Try to read something every day. This could be your school book, a book from home, a newspaper, a magazine... anything which involves reading.

Make sure you record your reading in your planner and have it ready to be signed on a Monday so we can update our reading chart.
