Year 6 - Saffron Class
In Saffron Class our teachers are Ms Farrugia and Mrs Edwards
School closure home learning resources
Whilst the school is closed, we will continue to provide a broad menu of activities for our learners. The section below provides a list of learning platforms that can be accessed via the internet.
For some of these platforms, your child will need a log in. Children will have already been provided with these.
During term time, teachers will provide daily updates outlining which tasks they wish learners to complete for the day. Alongside online learning platforms, there will be the usual home learning activities such as daily reading, maths fluency tasks (learning multiplication facts and number bonds) project homework and other research based learning.
You will be able to communicate with class teachers and support staff, in the usual way, via class dojo. Any problems or queries then please do communicate with your class teacher via class dojo messaging.

Class Teacher Welcome
Welcome! Our goal in Year 6 is to ensure children foster a love of learning and a desire for knowledge through a range of different topics and subjects. As this is the final year in their learning journey at St Lukes, it is important that children are equipped with the necessary skills and independence they need ready for the next stage in their future education.
Thank you for visiting the class website. I hope you find this to be an invaluable resource to help keep you up to date on what is happening in the classroom and what is expected of students.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me via phone to the school, email, or class dojo.

Information for Parents/Carers
Reading: Children should be reading daily and recording this in their reading record books.
PE: Lessons with Coach will be on a Tuesday afternoon, please ensure your child has the correct kit with them on this day. This includes: house colour top (blue, red, yellow, green), plain navy tracksuit bottoms or shorts and black plimsoles. Please ensure all uniform is named and labelled clearly. Please remind your child to bring in their PE kit on their PE day, and also to bring their kits home to be washed regularly.
Class dojo: Class dojo is a great way for children and parents to visually see the points they have earned throughout the week. Children start each day with 5 dojo points so there is a possible 25 dojo points per week. The children can earn extra points for outstanding work or contribution in and outside of school, but they can lose points due to behaviour. It is also a great platform for us to share the learning that is happening in our class for the week, as well as keeping you informed of any key dates and events. There is also a messaging section should you wish to speak to me about any concerns you may have throughout the year.
Should you have any concerns or would like to meet to discuss your child's learning, please feel free to schedule a time to meet after school.
