           Welcome to the Year Six Class Page

A big welcome to all the children and parents of Year 6 2019-2020!

We have lots of fabulous things planned for the year! 

 

We aim to help all children achieve their full potential whilst enjoying their time in our class. The children know that they are to make sure I am aware if they need any aspect of their work explained in more detail. Intervention will be either led by myself or a Teaching Assistant. Please do not hesitate to inform us if your child is worried about any issues that arise in school. Mornings are a very busy time for staff as we have to register the children, sort any other business and then get straight into Time to Worship, but we are more than willing to assist in any way after school if a longer discussion about your child is required.

 Below is the yearly plan for Year 6 2019-2020. Please be aware this is a flexible plan that may change.

 

PE 

Please make sure your child has the appropriate kit for indoors and outdoors PE at all times.

If your child is taking part in a club ,during or after school, that is on the field - your child will need a second pair of trainers. Muddy trainers will not be allowed in hall! It is recommended that your child has a plastic bag to keep muddy trainers separate from their PE kits.

PE will be on Tuesday  afternoons, and Friday afternoons after swimming stops.

Autumn Term Year 6 will be swimming on Friday mornings for a 10 week block. Swimming starts on Friday 13th September. Please send appropriate one piece swimming costumes and trunks that are not too baggy or the instructors will not let them swim! If your child needs goggles, please send a quick note to me giving consent.

Homework

Homework will be handed out on a Monday morning and is due back the following Monday. I have included a list of helpful games and activities to help your child with spellings. All the words on the  Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 lists will be drawn upon in the SATs spelling test. 

Homework may include some essential revision sheets before Spring Term and revision homework for the SATs will begin in earnest after that. Your child may be set spelling work online to do which is monitored in school. Up to that point, please hear your child read as often as possible, at least 3 times a week. I have given the children reading record books - please sign these when your child has been heard. They have a genre sheet at the back of their books to fill in. This encourages the children to read a wider range of books. This year, I have sent home a really useful parents' guide to hearing children read and asking higher depth questions on texts.

Finally, children are expected to be secure on their times tables up to 12x12. This is not just reciting tables but being able to recognise all the multiplication and division facts for all tables. Please help your child if they need to secure their tables. Each child should have a login for Times Tables R

               eg 4x6 = 24

                    6x4 = 24

                    ?x4= 24

                   24 divided by ? = 6   etc

 

 

Murder and Court Trials!

To start off our Crime and Punishment topic this year, Year 6 solved a murder mystery. Then we learnt about how court trials work and poor old Goldilocks was put on trial for breaking and entering and criminal damage. I have discovered some very capable debaters in our class!

SATs Tests

SATs week will start on Monday May 11th 2020. 

Monday - Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation

Tuesday - Reading

Wednesday - Maths - papers 1 and 2

Thursday - Maths - paper 3

Friday - No papers - well earned fun day!!

 

 

 

SATs Revision

Last year, paernts requested that I put the SATs workshop information on the website so here it is again for this

 

Revision Club

Revision Club will start on Tuesday 19th March 2019 and will run to Tuesday May 7th inclusive. I have sent a letter home for you to complete if you would like your child to attend. The children will have a short break at 3.15pm and the club will end at 4.30pm. Please let me know if your child has permission to walk home or not; also if they are not able to attend a session so they can be accounted for.
