Welcome to the Year 6 Class Page - Summer Term 1
All of the hard work is coming to a head this Half Term. Our long-awaited SATs take place the week beginning 9th May. It is very important that children are doing work every day. I recommend at least 15 minutes of Mathletics, 30 minutes on Reading Eggs, 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. Children can also work on these areas in school.
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 topic this term is the Local Area. 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 and Friday (pm). The children need to bring their PE kit to school with them as they will get changed during school time. It is imperative that children are bringing CLEAN WHITE T-SHIRTS for PE, as they will get hot and sweaty and it is unhygienic for them to be wearing the same clothes during the school day and for PE.
