Reading at home
In year 6, it is important that you read with your child at home AT LEAST five nights a week and sign their reading record. We allow year 6 children to sign their reading record themselves twice a week. Children who read regularly have a much wider vocabulary which helps them with all curriculum subjects.
Homework will be given each Monday to be handed in two weeks on Friday. Generally, homework will consist of Spellings (tested Fridays), Maths and Grammar.
Our P.E days are Wednesday and Friday
A gentle reminder that our school PE kit is a plain white t-shirt, plain black/blue shorts or joggers in cold weather and black pumps or trainers for outdoor sports.
Water bottles & snacks
Don’t forget to bring water bottles in each day - it is important for the children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please put a label on bottles and refill them every day.
Pre & Post teaching clubs
We will update you as soon as we are able to offer pre/post teach clubs to support children with their learning.
In Year 6 we must be able to read and write numbers up to 10 million. We must be able to add and subtract 1, 10, 100, 1000 from any number. We must be able to round numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1000. We must recognise the place value of each digit. As part of our fluency we will have weekly arithmetic tests followed by a follow up session to regularly encounter different mathematical questions.
Our class read this half term is following the character Jim Jarvis and his struggle through poverty in Victorian London. We will do daily novel reading sessions and daily writing sessions. We will also do 3-4 guided reading sessions a week on different texts and genres.
Animals inc. humans - The circulatory system
This half term we will learn all about the circulatory system. We will learn what the blood is made of and what the different parts do, how blood is transported round our body, the effects alcohol and drugs have on our body and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
Key Question: What do religions say to us when life gets hard?
In this this topic we will look at what religions say happens after we die. We will look at what some religions believe a soul is, what reincarnation is, the concept of judgement and questions we might have surrounding death.
