This is an email address you or your parents can use if you want to contact me with any questions you might have about your work. It might be about how to do something or checking if you have done it properly.
It does not work as a link so apologies if you have tried to message me and not been able to. You will need to cut and paste it into your browser. Also, could children use the emails of their parents or carers rather than their personal emails when contacting me.
If you need to contact the school about anything else, do not use this address: ring the school in the usual way.
There are some great art activities here if you visit this address.
The artist will show you, step by step, how to draw, plaint make collages. He uses ideas from famous artists and shows you how you can achieve similar results yourself.

Welcome to St. Cecilia's class page
This year is a very important year for children as they come to the end of their time at primary school. We have two main focuses in year six:
- to prepare each child for secondary school as best we can
- to get the children ready for their SATs tests in May.
Year 6 is hard but we try to make it as interesting as possible.
You can help us by making sure your child reads at home regularly. We cannot stress how important this is. The ability to read fluently and quickly is probably the most important skill your child needs.
Letters sent home regarding events in year 6 will be here so you can always find a copy.
Maths and literacy homework is attached below.
Maths is arithmetic practice. Literacy is grammar and punctuation revision.
We are going to be focusing on times tables in St Cecilia. Rapid recall of facts is essential in year 6 as it makes much of the work easier. The school has signed up to an online site so children can practise at home. Your child will have been given a username and password.
Year Six Weekly Information:
Things you need to know:
Homework will be given out on Fridays and is usually due back in the following Wednesday. Whenever possible, the homework will be posted on the class page. Occasionally, additional homework may be set.
Homework may involve researching a particular topic, practising skills learned in maths and literacy, or learning spellings and tables. It is extremely important that all homework is completed on time. If you have any questions about your homework or do not understand it you must speak to your teacher on the Monday before it should be handed in.
PE will be on Monday and one other day in the week. Please make sure you have a PE kit in school every day.
