Reading at home
In Year 6, we expect our children to be reading at least 5 times per week. We appreciate that it is not always possible to read every night with your child - come and see us if there are any problems. Reading at home doesn’t always mean their school reading books, it could be anything from a newspaper, magazine, kindle books to instructions of a board game! Staff will be monitoring reading records and there will be prizes up for grabs to those children who show commitment to reading at home.
At this time, new books will be given out on Mondays and should be brought back into school on a Friday ready for changing the following Monday. No books will be sent home over the weekend.
Homework will consist of short activities covering Maths, Grammar, Reading, Writing and another area of the curriculum. This will be given out fortnightly.
Our P.E days are Tuesday and Wednesday.
Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their full P.E kit on P.E days. Children will not be getting changed into their P.E kit during school time.
PE kit consists of: a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black PE pumps. Children may wear black jogging pants and a jumper in the colder months if they go outside. Due to the limited space we have in the cloakroom in our classroom, please can children refrain from bringing in large rucksacks/handbags. They are too big for the pegs and children cannot hang their coats up properly. Thank you for your co-operation with this.
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.
We will be looking at numbers and their place value to 1 000 000. We will read, write, order, compare and make number patterns before rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 1000, 10 000 and 100 000. We will also be looking back at skills from previous years to make sure that we have secured them.
Please ensure your children are continuing to access their TT Rockstars account through the app/website.
This half term, we will be reading 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' by JK Rowling. We will use this novel to help us write in a variety of genres and embed grammar features.
This term we will cover the Circulatory System as our Biology unit. We will learn about the heart, the components of blood and the role of the lungs.
Our unit this half term is called 'Ideas about God'. We will use this to investigate other names used for God both within Christianity and other faiths.
