Class 17- Mr Walker

Hello and welcome to Class 17!



Year 6 Autumn Term Topic Web

Weekly overview


Reading Book and Reading Diary.

Every child will have a home reading book that should only be brought into school once it has been completed. Please try to read at home as much as possible; 3 or 4 times a week for 15 minutes is a good target. When you have read at home, you can write your progress in your school reading diary the following morning.


Class 17 has PE on a Monday afternoon and children can come to school in their PE kits. 


More information regarding Year 6 homework to follow.

In the meantime, children must read their home reading book as often as possible and practise their times tables. I have also added a range of online Year 6 resources below.

Water bottle

Please make sure your child brings a water bottle to school each day.
