Lime – Year 6
Dear Children and Parents,
Welcome to our class website. Here you can find out all about what you will be learning in Lime Class. There are overviews of our subjects, links to useful resources and information, tasks and activities for use in and out of the class and examples of your work. Homework, letters and timetables will be available here too.
This website will celebrate learning in Lime Class as well as providing information and resources to help you push yourselves and get the most out of our broad and enriching curriculum.
There is a link to remote learning below. This will be used in the event of any full or partial closure of the school due to Covid-19. At present it contains the remote learning for last term and will be updated as necessary.
PE and The Daily Mile in Lime Class
PE will take place on Thursdays and Fridays. On these days, children should bring in suitable trainers as well as their school shoes with a bag to keep muddy shoes in. School shoes should be worn into school and then changed at the beginning of PE lessons. A tracksuit top and tracksuit trousers will also be required - to be worn over the top - if going on the field at any time and to be worn on the playground in poorer weather. This kit requirement applies to anyone wanting to go on the field at lunch times as well. This is to open up use of the field as much as possible. At the moment, no other PE kit should be worn or brought into school. This is due to the absence of changing facilities with current regulations, coupled with the need to manage temperature in the class (PE kits would be colder in class). This will be reviewed at Easter after which time it is possible that PE kits will be worn into school in place of school uniform on PE days (a separate communication will come home if this is the case).
On some days, we will also do the Daily Mile. There is no requirement for a change of shoes for these sessions, but children might prefer to change into trainers and so may bring them into school.
PLEASE NOTE: Homework will not be sent home during the first week of return to regular schooling. It will resume shortly afterwards.
Homework focusing on fundamentals in maths - such as tables and calculations - and English - reading and spellings - will come home in the near future. A letter will accompany this when it does and will be available on this website.
At the moment every child should have a reading book, either from home or from school (where the library can be accessed once a day) and should read daily. Once Home-School books arrive, reading should be recorded daily.

Lime Class is a safe yet stimulating environment in which we learn not just about the national curriculum subjects, but how to learn, how to understand ourselves better and become increasingly independent.
