Welcome to our class page!
Ms Bashir and Miss Iram
We hope you have had a good break and are now ready for learning in the second half of Spring term. We are looking forward to supporting children and are excited about our next topic. If you would like to see which subjects we learn on a daily basis, see the class timetable below.
In year 6, we have high expectations! We expect the children to come to school on time (8.35am) so they don't miss out on their morning arithmetic starter, which is vital to help improve Maths in preparation for the sats. In addition, we expect children to have a positive attitude to learning and try their best in all subjects.
At the beginning of each topic, you will receive a Home Learning Menu where you will be able to choose from a selection of activities. The topic this term is What a Wonderful World. This is also attached in the Medium Term Plans section.
In addition to this, each day you will be expected to:
•Practice times tables and applying this learning
•Read for at least 10 minutes and bring your book bag to school.
This allows children to develop their vocabulary, increase their fluency and understanding. It is important to read for pleasure, whether that is online, a comic, magazine or a book children enjoy reading. Children will bring home a home reading book of their choice on the completion of which, children will write short review.
Children should spend at least 10 minutes a day learning their timetables and should know their tables up to 12 times. Timetables provide a foundation for a range of learning in Maths including written multiplication and division, fractions, percentages and time. Try online learning to encourage your children to learn their timetables:
All year 6 pupils also have a login for Times tables Rock Stars- which you will find in the back of their homework books.
Spellings will be given on Fridays and tested weekly. Children will be taught spelling strategies which they can also use to practise spellings at home. Spelling frame is also a good website to practice spellings in a fun and interactive way.
We have P.E every Thursday and Friday so make sure your PE kit is in school on these days.
