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.
Our Autumn Term Topic is Britain At War! To see more detail about what the children will be learning please have a look at our Curriculum Newsletter.
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.
Children will be given new spelling words to learn every Tuesday to be returned on the following Tuesday. They will be regularly tested on their spellings and so it is important that they practice these words at home.
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.
To compliment and deepen your child's learning and understanding, we ask all children to complete a topic-based homework project over each half term. The first one, all about World War I is due in to school on Wednesday 20th October. If you have any questions about this, please do let us know. We can not wait to see all of the children's hard work.
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.
