Year 6

Teachers : Mrs Bridges (6B), Mrs Welch (6W)
Teaching Assistant:  Mrs Gibbon

ENGLISH

As it is leading up to writing SATs, the children will be producing pieces of writing for their portfolios that showcase all of the skills needed. Our inspiration for writing is a short animation called ‘Replay’ that will really allow the children to use emotive language and get them thinking about the specific vocabulary they are choosing and the effect that they really want to create for the reader.

maths

In maths, the children will be revisiting a variety of topics, including arithmetic, to ensure that they are fully prepared for year 7.

PE: Class 6B

6B We will be doing PE on a Thursday and Friday. Please could you ensure that you child has their PE kit with them on these days. It would be extremely useful if children could bring in a pair of gym pumps and a pair of trainers.

PE: Class 6W

6W will be doing PE on a Thursday and Friday. Please could you ensure that you child has their PE kit with them on these days. It would be extremely useful if children could bring in a pair of gym pumps and a pair of trainers.

Learning Diaries and Keeping in Touch

Your child will be expected to still record their homework (which will be linked to Aladdin or Social Enterprise), and reading in their diary. This is a fantastic resource for the children to use, but also key for parent and teacher communication. Even though we have Accelerated Reader time in school, please continue to read with your child, at least 3 times per week and record this in their diary.

homework

The children will be continuing to use their revision books, for reading, SPaG and maths homework, and will be given set pages for each one to complete each week. The children’s login details for their educational apps can be found in their learning diaries.

Attendance and Punctuality

Good attendance and punctuality is essential to help your child achieve the best they possibly can.
Every week the attendance cup is awarded to the class with the best attendance – hopefully our class can win the cup lots of times this coming term!
We will also be awarded points in the Punctuality League. Let’s see if we can beat last year’s score.   

Snack

We aim to teach the children about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. With this in mind, our fantastic chef provides a range of healthy snacks. Please pay £2.00 per week to the class teacher if you would like your child to receive a snack and drink.

Uniform and Jewellery:

Please ensure children wear the correct school uniform, including black shoes and plain socks. Jewellery must not be worn. Please label all items so that they can be easily reacquainted with children if they are mislaid.

Children can achieve reward stamps for trying hard with their work! Every time they collect 50 stamps, they are awarded with a certificate.
