Welcome to Year 6!

Respect Relationships Reflective Responsible Resilient

Learning from home

 

We have put together some links to online resources that can support children learning at home.

 

Parents- We would ask that Parents consider how to keep children safe when they are online. NSPCC has some fantastic guidance available here: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/.  We would recommend setting parental controls on any devices and keep an eye on your child's history. 

 

Children- just a reminder if you ever see anything that makes you uncomfortable please speak to an adult. This website is brilliant for learning about how to keep yourself safe https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/ - there are even games!

Every child has been given a login for classroom secrets. They will have work set every Monday, Wednesday and Friday sent via Class Dojo.

 

Reading for pleasure

 

We have produced some suggested reading lists for each year group which might be helpful to provide high quality texts at home for your child.

Audible stories Audible are now offering children free audio books whilst schools are closed.

A very warm welcome to Year 6 from Mrs Plaskitt, Mrs Beckinsale-Yates, Mrs Price, Miss Monaghan, Mrs Goodman, Mrs Veasey and Mr Aherne! 

 

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 and World War Two. 

 

Throughout the year we will cover weekly SEAL lessons, which will focus on our 5 Rs. This half term our 5R focus is Responsible and our SEAL topics is 'Good to be me!'.

 

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

 

We also encourage our year 6 pupils to become young ambassadors and take on leading roles around school. We have a young leaders programme which runs on a Friday afternoon, where our pupils lead our year 3/4 children in P.E. and music activities. Our super sixes also get opportunities to develop their gardening skills and complete a very exciting 'Forest Schools' programme which is always incredibly popular.

 

Could we please ask that you ensure PE kits are kept in school all week. Our PE days are Thursdays and Fridays, but there are often extra PE opportunities throughout the week. Children will also have daily physical activities.

 

 

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!
