Year 6

 
Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to the beginning of another school year. Year 6 have hit the ground running and things will not be slowing down as we look ahead to the rest of the Autumn term! Children are aware of the high expectations that we have of them all as well as the amount of homework that is required in this final year of Primary school. Each child will have a Maths and Reading challenge: they are expected to complete this daily. As well as this, they will be given English, Maths and Topic homework every Wednesday to be handed in on the following Tuesday. Every Monday, they will be given a ‘100-word challenge’ which we will enjoy reading on Fridays: this will greatly improve their creative writing. The majority of their homework will be set online using Google Classroom. Please ask your child to explain how they are using 'Eedi' and 'Read Theory' to help with their learning. We would encourage children to use their blue journals to help them stay on top of and organise their outstanding homework; this will prove good practice when they transition to secondary school next September.

 

PE kits will be required on Monday and Tuesday; we advise that they should be taken home and washed every weekend and kept in school for the entirety of the week. Extra PE sessions may happen on some days.

English

This term, we will be studying 'The Witches' by Roald Dahl. We will be focusing on the history of Witches as well as the portrayal of Witches across different books and films. Vocabulary is crucial to language development and we will be learning new words on a daily basis and using them in our writing and speaking.

 

Maths

All children will be studying units on Place Value, the Four Operations, Fractions, and Position and Direction.

In the afternoons, children will be focusing on Arithmetic and completing a daily Maths countdown.

 

PE

In PE, children will be enjoying Dance and in Games, they will be playing Invasion sports such as Rugby and Football.
