Welcome to our class page!
Mrs Bashir and Miss Canty
We are looking forward to supporting children and are excited about our Spring topics!
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.
We have P.E every Wednesday and Friday so remember to have your kit in school.
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.
In addition to this, each day you will be expected to:
•Practice times tables and applying this learning
Complete Maths homework
•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 to read.
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.
