Year 6 - Ms Lankester



Dear parents and carers,


Thank you for meeting with me during our virtual parents' evening. It was great to speak with you all and discuss your child.


Homework for half term will be as follows:

- grammar paper

- reading paper

- arithmetic paper

- two reasoning papers

- 'The Other Side of Truth' by Beverley Naidoo (to start reading)


There is a lot for your child to complete over the half term and I am sure it will keep them occupied. They will be bringing the homework back today (19.10.2020) and it needs to be back in school by Monday 2nd November so that it can be looked at in school.


Many thanks for your continued support and I hope you manage to have a peaceful break during the half term.


With every best wish,


Ms Lankester



Dear parents/carers,


Some of you requested recommendations for good verbal and non-verbal reasoning books. My colleagues have suggested the Bond books to be the most prescriptive and of use to the children. Please find a picture attached so you know what to look for.


Kindest regards,


Ms Lankester



Dear parents and carers,


Many thanks for your continued support and patience as we have started this slightly strange new academic year. The children are continuing to settle well and are impressing me with their knowledge and renewed enthusiasm to education. They have worked exceptionally hard today on creating biographies about Anne Frank - you should be very proud of them.


Your child will have brought home their test papers this week, please go through with your child if you have the opportunity. We will revise in class also but find time at home to be of great value too.


Don't forget to donate if you can for our Harvest liturgy. There is a small collection starting in our classroom starting already - this will be gratefully received by the Ace of Clubs.


Finally, parents' evening starts next week. I have posted the times above and we will use your child's Google Classroom to meet virtually (if you have chosen that option). If the timings do not work, please send an email 'FAO Ms Lankester' via the school office email address and I will rearrange for you.

1. Log in as your child (use top right hand corner of Chrome to check. Some families have been unable to log in as they are already logged in on their personal Google account)

2. Click the meet link at the top of stream at the same time I have given you


Many thanks once again for your support during these trying times. I will keep you and your families in my prayers.


Kindest regards,


Ms Lankester

Google Classroom instructions for Parents' Evening



Dear parents and carers,


The children have settled well into Year Six and are remembering the rules of our school. This tenacious attitude has allowed them to be great role models for the rest of the school. 


Thank you for attending the secondary school transition meeting: we hope it was of use.


Many thanks for your continued support.


Ms Lankester

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.
