Year 6 - Ms Garside 2023 - 2024


Hello and welcome to 6G's class page.



Below is some Important information for this school year:


Please ensure your child brings their planner to and from school every day.

They will need it to record reading, to record accelerated reader quiz scores and to access usernames and passwords for educational websites.

I will check planners every Friday. I will be looking to see if your child has recorded at least four reading entries throughout the week and for a parent/carer signature. 

If you write a message in your child's planner, please remind them to show it to me.


  • Tuesday -  Outdoor PE 
  • Thursday -  Indoor PE

On the days that your child has a PE or Games lesson, we ask that they come to school in their PE/Games kit. They will wear this kit for the whole day instead of their uniform.

Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct PE kit with a plain tracksuit and trainers to wear for the whole day. Children should not be attending school in replica sports kits, such as football kits.

For more information regarding the correct P.E kit, please follow the link below:

Water bottles & snacks:

Please ensure your child comes to school with a water bottle labelled with their name. Also, if your child wishes to have a snack during break times, it must be one of the following items:

  • Toast
  • Fruit
  • Plain biscuit


Every day, your child will be expected to:

  • Practise their spellings by using the Oxford Owl online resources (5 minutes)
  • Practise their times tables by using Times Table Rockstars or any other method (5 minutes)
  • Read their accelerated reading book with an adult or access their reading account on Epic (10 minutes)
  • Complete designated assignments on SATS Companion as and when required.

Children can access our class Epic! account using our class code: skx7504

Login details for the websites above are in your child's planner.

Accelerated Reading information:

School planners are to be used to record any reading that occurs inside and outside of school. All children should be reading every day at home. The children will be using a reading scheme called 'Accelerated Reading'. This scheme will identify a 'range of scores' for your child and recommend suitable books based on that range. You may think that the books being recommended to your child are 'easy', but this scheme has been designed to quiz your child on their understanding of the content of the book, not the fluency of their reading. Once your child completes their book, they need to bring the book into school and complete the quiz on an iPad in school. They will receive a % score and the scheme will then recommend a new book for them to read. Children can access more books online by accessing their account on EPIC and clicking on 'AR'. Alternatively, children could check on the Accelerated Reading app whether any books that they have at home fit into their 'range of scores' and if so, complete the quizzes available.

I will hear the children read each week as part of reciprocal reading lessons in class.
