Welcome to the Year 6 Class Page.
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 every day. I recommend at least 15 minutes of 'Mathletics', 15 minutes of spelling and 30 minutes of reading DAILY. If your child struggles with any of these areas, more time should be spent supporting children on these areas. This is in addition to the homework handed out.
Reading records need to be completed 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 on Wednesday. If there is a question about the homework, children can see one of the Year 6 team on Monday lunchtime and we will go over the work with them. Please support your child by providing them with a time and place to work and by asking them if they have completed their homework.
Our topics this term are Northern Ireland and the Vikings. We will occasionally send home research projects on these topics for the children to work on - please support your child the best you can with this. PE will take place on Tuesday (pm) and Friday (pm). The children need to bring their PE kit to school with them on both days as they will get changed during school time.
