Mrs Green

Welcome to Topaz Class (year 6) 2021 - 2022 with Mrs Green.

IN THE EVENT OF YOUR CHILD HAVING TO SELF ISSOLATE, PLEASE COMPLETE THE HOME LEARNING PACK ATTACHED TO THIS PAGE. Please also encourage reading daily through Bug Club and Oxford Reading Buddy in order to reduce further gaps in learning. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am so glad to see you all back and ready for a brand new year (and your final year here at The Holy Spirit).

I am delighted to watch to grow, learn and enjoy your final year of primary school, and work together with yourself and your families to find success and happiness throughout the year. 

DAYS OF THE WEEK

PE will be on Friday afternoons. 

Homework will be given out on Monday and is due back in Friday. Hopework will support all class learning and it is therefore imperative homework is completed every week. Homework will be discussed in class and any questions about the homework will be answered on Monday afternoons prior to it being sent home. In the event of a misunderstanding or any confusion, I am more than happy to support you on Tuesday or Wednesday before homework is due back in. 

Reading: Reading is encouraged every evening.
