We hope you’ve had a super summer holiday and are ready for the new term.
Ms Bashir and Misss Canty
We are looking forward to supporting children and are excited about our new topics!
In year 6, we have P.E every Tuesday and Thursday 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
•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 Mondays 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.
