Welcome everybody to the Year 6 section of the website.
Class Teacher: Miss Anderton
LSAs: Mrs Harrison & Mr Bossons
If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to ask one of the year 6 team.
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 must have it signed to gain their sticker. Mrs Harrison will be making a note of children that have read so they can earn their sticker on the reading chart.
Homework will be given each Friday to be handed in on the following Friday. Generally, homework will consist of Spellings (tested Fridays), Maths and Grammar.
Our P.E days are Monday and Friday.
A gentle reminder that our school PE kit is a plain white t-shirt (not a polo shirt), plain black shorts 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.
Children can purchase bread sticks at the start of each half term (see Miss Brown in the school office) or bring a healthy snack for break time.
Pre & Post teaching clubs
Year 6 pre and post teaching clubs run before and after school throughout the week. Please see the timetable or ask Miss Anderton for more details.
Decimals, Percentages & Measurement
Our focus this half term is measurements. Regular arithmetic tests will be given to the children once a week followed by a follow up session to get them used to test-style questions in preparation for SATs.
We will use our enriching topics and class reader to begin to develop some fantastic pieces of writing. We will have a particular focus on sources from Titanic passengers. If you are interesting in attending our creative writing club please see Miss Anderton!
We will be building on our learning by conducting exploratory investigations and looking at how we can make a test fair. We will also be using our mathematics skills to help draw graphs.
What difference does the resurrection make to Christians?
We will be learning about the final days in Jesus’ life and how they are important to Christians.
