Sleights’ oldest children who are in year 6 (aged 10 and 11) are in Leaders. Children in Leaders are taught by Mrs Walker 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 are going swimming every Tuesday afternoon. On Wednesday afternoons, Leaders spend some time doing PE with Mr GoKool and the rest doing computing with Mrs Gurney.
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!)
Homework, including spellings, is sent out on a Thursday and then the spellings are tested on a Tuesday, when homework folders are returned. (Please check the dates on the spellings if you are unsure) Sumdog homework is also set weekly on a Thursday which includes a variety of different Maths challenges.
