Year 6 - Ms Lankester



Dear parents and carers,


I am so very proud of your children for all their hard work this term, and you. It has been a very different way of learning, challenging at times and honestly you have all excelled yourselves. 


The message below has been posted on Google Classroom for the children.

"This weekend you should:
- REST, next week will be tiring
- enjoy your time with your people at home, you might miss them next week
- check your uniform (winter uniform still please) and make sure it is ready on Sunday night for ease of putting on Monday morning
- bring Black Beauty back to school
- get to bed (to read or rest!) by 8pm Sunday night, you will be very tired by Monday 2pm so you'll be grateful of an early night come Monday

We are so excited to see you all on Monday. A school is not the same without its dear children."


All of my work over the past few weeks would not have been possible without your unwavering support. Thank you so much for all your guidance, support and care with your children and the online learning. I truly hope this is the last hurdle for us and we are back in school with as little disruption as possible.


Enjoy your weekend with your loved ones. 


Kindest regards,

Ms Lankester



Dear children and parents,


I hope you have had a relaxing break over Christmas and the New Year.


As you already know, we will not return to school on Tuesday but instead we will have live lessons via Google Classroom.


A timetable will be posted on the class page on Monday by 4pm, which outlines the live lesson plan for the week. Resources will be posted onto Google Classroom and this will be the main place of contact for the duration of home learning.


You may wish to consider the following to help prepare your child for home learning:


  • Have a quiet, tidy area for your child to work in
  • Ensure your child has access to Google Classroom – laptops/desktops or tablets are ideal
  • Saving passwords and usernames or having them written down next to the device being used is advisable
  • Headphones provide better sound quality
  • Check login details prior to Tuesday 5th
  • Have basic equipment (paper, pen/pencil, rubber, sharpener, ruler) available so that your child can complete the set tasks
  • Help your child to upload work onto the Google Classroom page when completed
  • Encourage your child to try their best


I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning.


Kindest regards,


Ms Lankester

Google Classroom instructions for Parents' Evening

Welcome to Year Six!


I am Ms Lankester, your class teacher. Our teaching assistant this year will be Mrs Billios. We are both very excited to see you back at school and start a fantastic new year.


- We start school at 8.30am and finish at 3.00pm

- Children should wear their P.E kits on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to school

- A small pencil case is allowed, but should be left in school

- Avoid bringing unnecessary items to school where possible i.e a coat on a twenty degree day


For any homework, please check the class page and Google Classroom. The log in is the same as last year and your child will need to accept the invitation to the class '6SL 2020-2021'.


The class web page remains the main form of communication between the school and your child. Should you have a general query, please ask your child to relay the message to me in class or see me at pick up time at the end of the day (I would be most grateful if you could remain on the gate side of the yellow line). Otherwise, I will aim to respond to any written communication within 72 hours.

Many thanks for your understanding and continued support. It is much appreciated, especially in these difficult times.
