In Year 6, children are expected to read every night at home in order to develop their fluency, comprehension and vocabulary. All children have a homework diary in which they should record which page of their book they are up to. In addition to this, children receive a page of Maths homework per week. This goes home on a Wednesday and must be back in school the following Monday. Each Friday, children receive a list of spellings, based on our spelling rule for the week, which they are expected to learn at home. They are tested on these words in class the following Friday. This year, year 6 have been signed up to 'Spelling frame', a fun and interactive learning platform where they can practise their weekly spellings without having to pick up a pencil!
Looking for more inspiration? Books for topics is a BRILLIANT resource for finding books on all subjects and for all ages. You can sign up to their blog and mailing list and get recommended reads straight to your inbox every month.
We have P.E. every THURSDAY and FRIDAY afternoon, so please ensure that your child comes in their correct kit on these days. Kit should include school P.E. t-shirt, school jumper, tracksuit bottoms or shorts and trainers.
Our turn will commence in the Summer term. Please ensure your child comes in appropriate clothing, and brings wellies and a coat when required.
If you are at home awaiting Covid-19 results or self-isolating and well enough to work, please check the REMOTE LEARNING page for this week's work.
