WELCOME TO YEAR 6
Mrs Carberry-Lewis (class teacher), Mrs Plumley and Mrs Samuelson (teaching assistants) are really looking forward to working with you all this year.
This term, Year 6 will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks and how they built their Empire. This will provide the inspiration for our lessons across the curriculum. Our curriculum overview is attached below to give you some more information about what your child will be learning.
Currently, Year 6 will have a double PE slot with PlaySport on a Friday afternoon, however this is subject to change according to staffing.
I look forward to working with the children for their final full term at Primary School!
Children will receive weekly spelling words and an accompanying activity. It is important that they practice these words at home ready for a spelling test every Monday.
It is extremely important that children are reading as much as possible at home. They should also be able to discuss their book with you and answer questions about what they have read. This should be logged in their reading record. Please remind your children to bring their reading records and books into school every day, so that they can be checked by adults in school.
In class, I shared a really useful Maths website with the children called Maths is Fun. I would recommend the children use this website to practise any areas of Maths that we have covered in class that they are unsure of. There are video tutorials to remind children of the methods and questions for them to complete.
A confident and speedy knowledge of times tables up to 12x12 will ensure that your child can confidently access the Maths curriculum. Please support them with this at home and regularly quiz them on ones they find tricky. They can also use Times Tables Rockstars too.
Year 6 PE sessions will be taught on a Tuesday and a Friday. Please ensure that children wear their PE kit to school on these days. We will be outside as much as possible, so please ensure that they are appropriately dressed as the weather gets colder. Long hair should be tied up and no jewellery should be worn for health and safety reasons.
