Year 6 Class Page
Welcome to a brand new school year!
We will be working hard to prepare ourselves for SATs in May and for Secondary School next September. It is very important that children are doing work at home every day. I recommend at least 15 minutes of Mathletics, 15 minutes of spelling and 30 minutes of reading DAILY. If your child struggles in any of these areas, more time should be spent on them. This is in addition to the homework handed out.
Our topics this term are Northern Ireland and The Vikings. We will occasionally send home research projects for the children to work on - please support your child as best you can with these projects.
PE will take place on Monday (pm) and Thursday (am). The children should bring a PE kit with them on both days as they will get changed during school time. It is very important to ensure that children are changing completely for PE to promote good personal hygiene. The PE kit remains unchanged - white t-shirt and black bottoms. School uniform is a red school jumper with a red or white shirt underneath or a red school fleece. Bottoms should be grey trousers or skirts - NOT tracksuit bottoms or leggings. Shoes and trainers should be black.
Reading records need to be filled in DAILY with a comment from the child. Parents do not need to sign as this is something your child should take responsibility for. Homework is handed out on Friday (using Google Classroom) and should be submitted by Wednesday. If there is a question about the homework, children can see one of us on Monday lunchtime and we will go over it with them. Please support your child by providing them with a time and place to work and asking them if they have completed their homework.
School begins with a 'soft start' on Tuesdays- Fridays at 8:45. This is an opportunity for the children to respond to marking or address any difficulties they may be having with their work. We (teacher or TA) will always be in the classroom to support your child's learning at these times.
If you have any questions regarding this or an aspect of your child's learning or welfare, please make an appointment to see one of the Year 6 team.
