Welcome to Leaders

Sleights’ oldest children who are in year 6 (aged 10 and 11) are in Leaders. Children in Leaders are taught by Mrs Porter and are supported by Mr Everall.

Being a Leader means lots of responsibility, being role models around school at all times. Leaders have their own building on the playground. 

Over the course of the week, Leaders learn lots of exciting things.  They  have English, Mathematics and guided reading every day.  

This term, Leaders will have swimming lessons on a Tuesday morning. Please make sure to give permission on Parent Pay if you haven’t done so already.

On a Wednesday afternoon, children will need their PE kit in school as they have lessons with Mr Gokool. The children will also continue their computing work with Mrs Gurney, which will also take place on a Wednesday afternoon.

Leaders love to read; sharing guided books, class texts and individual reading books.  Individual books are brought to school daily and changed once the book has been read (this might be longer than usual now the books are longer!)


Sumdog is set weekly on a Thursday, closing the following Wednesday morning, and includes a maths and grammar activity.

Spellings are set on a Monday, taught daily in school, and tested on a Friday.  A Sumdog activity to support your child's spellings is also available weekly from Monday.
