Hello and welcome to Year 6’s class page,
Welcome to a new school year! We hope you have had a wonderful summer break and We are looking forward to an exciting and rewarding term of learning with the children. As we have a busy year ahead, we must stress the importance of good attendance and punctuality; missing lessons makes it very difficult for children to build on their learning. Should your child be absent, please inform the school on the first day of absence; then send a note for the register on the first day back. We are fortunate to have Ms. Anifa supporting Year 6.
In order to ensure that all children are able to make the most of their right to learn, we will follow the School’s Behaviour for Learning Policy and the school rules – the 5 Bes: Be Kind, Be Honest, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be the best you can!
Reading – We would like to take this opportunity to highlight the importance of children spending time reading at home; not only do good readers make better writers, but it is an essential life-skill for children. Children in Y6 should read for at least 30 minutes every evening.
Children will be expected to borrow a reading book from school and we are asking all children to bring them in their book bags every day. Reading records will be sent home for children to record what they are reading. These need to be signed by an adult and returned to school every Tuesday.
As well as reading, children will be given spellings to learn weekly and will have a spelling test every Tuesday. English and Maths home learning will be sent home on Thursdays and should be handed in by the following Tuesday. Home learning will be set online using Showbie and MyMaths. It is extremely important that your child completes their homework weekly. Please inform me if your child is unable to access the homework.
Our PE lesson is on a Monday. Children should wear their PE kits to school. Kits (white t-shirt, dark shorts / tracksuit pants and plimsolls/trainers – everything MUST be labelled).

Queen Elizabeth II's Book of Condolence
Students in Year 6 reflected on the Queen's passing and wrote in her Book of Condolence:
We are very heartbroken that your mother, grandmother and great-grandmother has died. Queen Elizabeth was a great woman to us all. We appreciate her 70 years of reign. We wish the best to all in the royal family going through these difficult times. We feel so heartbroken for your loss. We hope you will be surrounded by love and roses.
- Hussein, Zhenar, Amina, Muskaan, Niylah and Aliyah (Year 6)
We are very sorry for your loss. Queen Elizabeth was no ordinary woman - she was someone who cared for the country and we will always keep that in our beloved hearts. As you are feeling devastated about the death of the Queen, we hope you are surrounded by much love and feel better soon.

We at Donnington loved the Queen because of the change she made to our country. We are so sorry for the loss. All our prayers and hugs are with the family at this time. We will miss you!

We would like to notify you that we are extremely heartbroken about your recent family member's death. We acknowledge everything Queen Elizabeth did for us. We are sending all our best wishes to you.

Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to the Year 6 class page.
This is where you will be able to find any information about Year 6’s blended learning (the work which is happening at school and also any home learning).
We will continue to use 'Showbie' for any learning completed at home so please make sure you are part of our class.
If you are not able to come to school, make sure you check 'Showbie' every day to see what we are learning. This work will be put on 'Showbie' the evening before each school day. Our weekly homework will continue to be set on 'Showbie' and this should be completed by all children.
I hope you are all well and staying safe.
Miss Van Pelt
