Year 6 - New for September 2020

Welcome to Year 6!

Work for children who are isolating

The Year 6 Team

This year in Year 6, our teachers are Mrs Thomas (Year 6 Team Leader), Mrs Hagger and Miss Krawiec. We are also supported by our dedicated Learning Support Assistants (LSAs): Mr Norgrove, Mrs Friar, Mrs Hopkins, Mrs Serreau-Nardi, Mrs Kundi and Mrs Venner.  They support us throughout the day in and out of the classroom.

PE

PE days will be Mondays (outdoors) and Thursdays (indoors) for Autumn 1.  Children should wear correct PE kit (plain red or white t shirt, black shorts for inside with black or dark blue tracksuit trousers for outside).  Please ensure all PE kit is named.

Children should come into school wearing their PE kit on Mondays and Thursdays.

Homework

Homework in the Autumn Term

Due to the current government guidance, we have had to make some changes to when we set homework next year.

Homework will be set on a Friday and will be due in on a Tuesday.

The following homework will be set each week:

  • a short reading task (plus daily reading which continues to be very important in Year 6)
  • spellings to learn and a short spelling task
  • a maths task (a times tables task, a My Maths task or a written task linked to class work will be set on a three-week rotation)

Spellings will be tested on a Tuesday.

 

It will be important that homework is handed in on time as we are required to leave the books for 48 hours before they can be marked.  If homework is not handed in on time, unfortunately the books will not be marked for that week.  In Year 6, we encourage the children to be more independent so that they are training themselves for the increase of homework they will experience when they move to secondary school.  We would be grateful if you could support your child with this.  

 

Homework tasks for the week can be found in the 'homework' tab of the website.

Year 6 Residential Trip November 2020

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID restrictions, we are unable to run this residential trip this year.  The office will contact you shortly to arrange refunds for those who have already paid.

Year 6 Autumn Term 1 Topic Web

Our topic this half term is 'The Industrial Revolution' so our English, history and DT work all linked to this.  In English, we are focusing on the book 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty which is set in Victorian Britain.

Amazing Writing!

Our first unit in English was about descriptive language.  The children were given a picture of a forest and they came up with some fantastic language to describe the scene.  We talked a lot about the kind of atmosphere they wanted to create so they had to match their vocabulary to the atmosphere they chose.  We also focused on the different sentences structures they could use.  Have a look at these amazing pieces!

We have started to look at the book 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty.  This book is set in Victorian Britain.  The main character is called Jim Jarvis and the children have written a diary entry to describe how he felt when he and his family were evicted from their home (one room in a big house).  Have a look at these pieces - they've worked really hard and we are so impressed with how the children have settled down to their learning.
