Staff: Mr Wilson and Mr Howard
Welcome everybody to the Year 6 section of the website.
If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to ask one of the year 6 team.
In Summer 2 we are continuing with the topic we have been enjoying for half a term already:
Colours collide, melting together on the canvas: an impression of light, a rage of red, a lobster perched on a telephone… Come and find out about the bizarre and eccentric minds of the gallery rebels!
Art can be an act of rebellion. Can you change the world with a paintbrush, a thought, or an idea?
Take up your arms and fight for the cause...Paintbrushes and sketch books at the ready - let's make art!
We will be doing lots of writing and drama in English this term. The writing will show the children all the different styles and genres involved and give budding authors a chance to show off. Our drama work will lead up to our exciting end of year performance which all parents/carers are invited to attend.
Maths will focus more on real-life type problems involving time and money. This will ensure the children have necessary life skills to prepare them for their journey to high school and the rest of their lives.
As you are probably aware knowing our times tables is a huge focus now so a weekly times tables challenge will take place for the children to track their progress. Learning times tables up to 12 at home, will be very helpful for your child. Let’s see if you can improve your score each week for a prize!
Children will be given their homework at the start of each term which will link to our topic work. Children will have the full half term to work on at least 3 tasks. Children can bring their homework in at various points before the end deadline. Children’s work will be celebrated in class and in our homework celebration assembly.
PE takes place on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Please make sure that kits are in school for these sessions. Kits consist of a white t-shirt, black shorts, pumps for indoor use and trainers for outdoors. For the children’s safety, we ask that jewellery is removed for PE lessons. Children are expected to take part in P.E lessons unless they are provided with a written note explaining their reason for not taking part.
Regular reading has a positive impact on your child's progress in all subjects. Please encourage your child to read every night, regardless of whether it is their school reading book or not. As summarised in our ‘Home School Agreement,’ parents and carers are encouraged to write a comment in the reading record so that we can see how pupils are doing at home and find out what they are reading. In school, pupils will take part in daily guided reading sessions with the teacher or LSA, however we read at every available opportunity, so please ensure books are in school. If you would like more information about supporting your child's reading, please let us know.
