Welcome to our Year 6 class!

We have 19 pupils in our class. We work with a range of teachers. On Monday and Tuesday, Mrs Anderson takes us for maths and Mrs Penrose takes us for English. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons we have a range of specialists to teach Science (Mr Carter), PE (Mr Seagrave and Mr Herd), RE (Mrs Williams), Art and DT (Mrs Williams) and Spanish (Ms Grazebrook). Ms Catchpole teaches on Wednesday mornings and all day on Thursday and Friday. Ms Grazebrook is our Teaching Assistant.

Your reading book, reading record and any completed homework.

A drinking bottle of fresh WATER.

A fresh fruit snack for break time.

A coat or waterproof jacket - we work and play outside in all weathers!

A warm hat and gloves in cold weather.

A sun hat during in hot weather.

Your swimming kit in the summer (one piece swimsuit for girls; trunks and NOT baggy shorts for boys; towel and swimming hat for ALL).

How we mark work in Yew Class

Effective marking of work involves a dialogue between pupil and teacher to identify what has been done well and the next steps in learning. Sometimes this will be done verbally (labelled VF for verbal feedback). Our written marking uses a system of highlighting. We use pink to identify where we are 'Tickled Pink' that the Success Criteria (expectations set out at the start of the lesson) have been achieved. Green highlighting identifies a next step (Green for Growth). Pupils respond to marking in purple pen at the start of each lesson, correcting and improving their work. We have agreed as a school some 'Non-Negotiables' for written work. Yellow highlighting will identify for pupils where these need correcting. These Non-Negotiables are age dependent, but once an aspect of presentation has been mastered, we expect pupils to apply this in all contexts and yellow highlighting reminds them if they have not done so. We review the marking system regularly with pupils.

Non-Negotiables

In Yew Class we take pride in our work and we make sure that certain things are always correct.
