Year 6

Welcome to Rowling Class Page.

Our class is named after the author J.K.Rowling.
My name is Miss Stevinson and I teach the amazing Year 6 class. I have been a teacher at Acton for many years and I am also the maths subject leader.
We also have the wonderful Miss Smith supporting in class. The class are also very fortunate to have specialist PE sessions for Active 30 with Mr Scott. Y6 will also have Mr Gibbons this half term for PE sessions on a Thursday.

Our Class has been named after our chosen class author of J K Rowling!

Homework:
Your child has their own spellings they should be working on each week x10 and should be practising their times tables at home on TTR or by hand. Please sign their communication diary when you've heard them read. Extra homework tasks will also be made accessible to the children on the Google Classroom and they also have their own homework books.

Accelerated Reader – the children can complete weekly quizzes on the books they have been reading at home.
