Welcome to Japan!

Monday 8th March 2021 – Full School Opening

School reopens for all pupils on Monday 8th March 2021, we look forward to seeing them all.  We have many exciting things planned for their return

Class Information

In Class Japan, our aim is to develop a love of learning.  We always try our best in everything we do and never give up when faced with difficulties.

Our Japan class teacher is Mr Deakin and our wonderful teaching assistant is Mrs Corness.  We will also be taught by Mrs Berry and Mrs Haslehurst, our other Year 6 teachers.

Water bottles

Please remember to bring in your school water bottle every day. Water is very good for our brains! Water bottles will be sent home every night to be washed and refilled ready for the next day.

Japan have PE on a Thursday.  In Autumn term, the children will be developing their knowledge of netball and enhancing their skills.  PE will be taught by Mr Fidler, our school PE specialist.

Please make sure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on this day as most of our PE will be outside, please ensure they are wearing a tracksuit.  Other kit can be a white T-shirt, black shorts/leggings and pumps or trainers.


Japan will receive their homework every Friday. It will consist of Spellings, Maths and English work.  We will also receive a Power project which can we worked on over a half term rather than just one week. The more tasks you complete the more points you receive. If home learning if needed, it will be uploaded to class dojo for you to complete and send back for marking.  If you would prefer a hard copy just let us know by emailing the school office on admin.office@gwladysstreet.com

As well as completing weekly homework, it is important to read with your children every night.  This will ensure the children develop their word reading and comprehension skills which are very important in developing their knowledge.  Really focus on asking questions about their book.
