Hello to all our Year 6 families,
Due to the announcements by the government on Monday 4th January 2021, all schools have been required to close for the majority of children. Christ Church remains open to pupils of key workers and vulnerable children. If you think your child falls into this category, please get in touch with school to enquire.
For all other children, teachers will be setting remote learning tasks for children to complete at home. Please ensure your child checks their SeeSaw class pages regularly and watch out for further messages from school staff.
Below you will find some information regarding teaching and learning for this half term. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Reading at home
In Year 6, we expect our children to be reading at least 5 times per week. 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! You can also access free ebooks on the Oxford Owl website. Please see the 'English' section for more information regarding Reading.
This half term we will be continuing our work on Fractions, moving onto decimals and percentages. Links to live lessons and remote learning tasks will be set for these. Please ensure your children are continuing to access their TT Rockstars account through the app/website.
Our new novel is 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'. Although we will be posting extracts from the book and online links, you may wish your child to have a physical copy. I have attached an amazon link to the book here:
Linking to our class novel, we will be studying the exciting topic of WW2. Children in Y6 have loved this topic in the past and we are excited to get started arranging some remote lessons for this.
