Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Respect Relationships Reflective Responsible

 

A very warm welcome to Year 6 from Mrs Plaskitt, Mrs Beckinsale-Yates, Mrs Price, Mrs Goodman and Mr Ahearne! 

 

In Year 6 children are given the opportunity to build on their successes from their time in Key Stage 2. Throughout Year 6, the children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics including: Ancient Greece, South America and Natural Disasters.

 

Throughout the year we will cover weekly SEAL lessons, which will focus on our 4 Rs. Our current SEAL topic is new beginnings. Our 4R this term is Respect.

 

All of the topics will have a Creative Homework Project linked to them, which will give the children the opportunity to showcase their talents, strengths and interests. This will be given to children at the start of each half term.

 

Could we please ask that you ensure PE kits are kept in school all week. Our PE day is Friday; children will have one session with Corporal Butcher but there are often extra PE opportunities throughout the week.

 

 

Homework expectations:

  • We expect children to read as much as possible. Children in year 6 should be reading daily.
  • By the end of year 6, children already should know all of their times tables. We recommend that children practise these as much as possible. We are now signed on to 'Rockstars Times tables which is proving very popular and practise makes perfect when it comes to times tables!
  • Children are given a spelling test weekly, so we expect children to practise their spellings at home. We have one practice session in school to help children with this.
  • In addition to this, we will give children English and maths related homework on a Monday. This is always due in on the following Friday.

We believe, all children should have a love for reading and we actively promote this in school. If you aren't enjoying a book- it's the wrong book for you! Find one you fall in love with and can't put down!

Attendance:

The more children are in school, the more they are learning. Our aim is to have children in school as much as possible. Ideally, we are aiming for at least 97% attendance.
