Year 6 - New for September 2020

Welcome to Year 6!

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.  It is a good idea for PE kit to come into school on a Monday and go home for washing on a Friday - PE days can change, dependent on the weather!

Homework

Summer Holiday Homework

Over the holidays, there are some short tasks we would like you to complete.  Please see the document below for further details.  Obviously, we have not been able to have our usual 'move-up' day so we would like you to create a small piece of display work ready to go up in our new classrooms.  The instructions are on the pdf below and there will also be a short video to help you if you need it!

If you would like some other things to do, there is a maths activity pack below which contains some fun things you can do with maths over the holidays.  You can choose what activities you would like to do - they give you a good opportunity to keep your maths skills going ready for Year 6!

Don't forget you can still access TTRockstars over the holidays.  Maintenance will be carried out on the TTRockstars website in the last couple of days of the holidays but it will be available for you to keep practising for the rest of the time!

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.  

Year six residential trip November 2020

Please find below a link to the slide show from the parent information meeting about the new year six residential planned for November 2020. We are awaiting confirmation as to whether this will be allowed to go ahead or not. We hope to have confirmation of this near the start of the school year. If it is not possible for this trip to go ahead parents will receive a full refund.
