Mr Cairns’ Class
Just a quick note to welcome your child into my class in Year 6 and to wish them every success throughout the coming year. Here are some of the important events which occur during the week.
Year 6 will enter and leave school by the main school gate (buzzer): their times are 9.15am-3.30pm.
Firstly, your child will be given a set of ten words to learn on Monday and will be expected to return this work on Friday. Secondly, homework will be given out on Tuesday and again should be handed in on Friday, parents must sign homework and spellings for your child to receive his/her reward star.
As well as this, it is important that your child reads at home at least three times a week. Reading diaries will be checked on a Friday. Reading books/records should be brought to school every day. Your child will be rewarded for doing their homework, spellings and reading.
Other important events which happen during the week are swimming and P.E. Swimming is on a Monday afternoon at Boldon Comp. P.E. is on a Tuesday afternoon. If your child is unable to participate then they should bring a note explaining why they cannot participate.
Thank you in anticipation of an enjoyable year, if you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to speak to me by contacting the school office.
