P.E. will be on a Monday - please come to school in your P.E. kit and ensure that it consists of: a white t-shirt, black shorts / jogging bottoms or leggings and black pumps or trainers.

 

Class Dojo is there to make it easy for parents and carers to contact teachers if they have any small queries or questions about learning or if they would like to send a quick message about their child. For all other questions or further support, the school office is there to support and are available via the school email or telephone number found on the website homepage.

Reading

 

 

At St Luke's we love reading! There is nothing better than curling up and getting cosy with a good book. Whatever you like to read, St Luke's will have something for you. We have a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books in our class library as well as the Accelerated Reader library. If you have a favourite author or genre, why not ask if we have a copy in school?

 

It is essential that you read at home daily. This can be on your own, with a friend or perhaps a family member. You should spend approximately 30 minutes a day reading to improve your skills and vocabulary. Remember to bring your reading book into school daily and ask someone at home to sign your reading record to earn your punch card prizes!

What shall I do if I have a worry?

 

If you are feeling upset or worried about something there are plenty of people you can talk in school that can help you. You could write a worry in our class worry box, or speak to one of the Year 6 staff members who are always there to help you. However, if you feel you would like to speak to someone else, all members of staff around school are happy to help. You can always talk to one of the teachers on the poster below:

Who can I talk to?
