Parent Information Year 6 2021

Welcome to Year 6 with Joshua Barnett, Jaana Gray and Amy Halliday.

Our aim is to provide a safe, caring and enjoyable learning environment where children are challenged and encouraged to achieve to the best of their ability.

Computers and Devices

Please refer to the BYOT Policy found on Explain SCAS. Expectations:

  •  Only to be used under teacher instruction during learning sessions
  •  Are an educational tool 
  •  Must be present and fully charged each day
  •  Fully capable laptops are required for High School. If you are hanging out for one more year it might be worth biting the bullet and investing now. Macbooks or Notebooks are preferable, but Chromebooks will suffice. 
  •  Are not to be used outside of the classroom (including to and from school or in the playground waiting for buses or Kiss and Drop)
  • No mobile phone use, until outside school grounds
  • Social media: no child under the age of 13 should be using social media.

Homework

Homework consists of:

  • a spelling/vocabulary sheet 
  • Supplement Sheet
  • Reading for 10 to 20 minutes each day. 
  • Premiers Reading Challenge (login available shortly)
  • Mathletics
