Year 6 2020 - 2021

Dear Year 6 parents,

Welcome back to the new school year. Please find below some useful information about Year 6.

Homework

Homework in Year 6 usually consists of research based around a new subject each half term, maths homework that is usually linked to what we have learnt the previous week and a reading comprehension. Due to the current situation I will not be sending out homework but it would be advisable to set tasks for your children to complete at home. If you are unsure where to start or what resources to use then please get in touch.

Reading

Reading is of huge importance in year 6. I would expect children to read for at least 10 minutes each night and record their reads in their planners.

There are many advantages to reading at home; one of which is the importance of having time to read and discuss a text with an adult.

PE

Our PE lesson is on a Friday morning with Mr Hutson. Please ensure that your child is coming to school wearing an outdoor PE kit and school jumper or cardigan each week.

Additional support at home

There are also other ways to support your child’s learning:

  • In their school planner you will find spellings, a multiplication table and shapes and their properties that you can practise at home
  • There is a huge bank of resources available on Purplemash. This is a good platform to record their research in a variety of ways
  • Ttrockstars is a fantastic way for children to become more fluent in their multiplication recall skills

 

I am looking forward to teaching your children this year and I hope that they will find it enjoyable and have a very successful year. If there is anything you would like to discuss with me regarding your child or their work or any other concerns then please make an appointment with the office.

Although the start of this school year has been different, we would like to say thank you to all of you for your cooperation throughout the start of this school year. Please remember no water bottles in school and no fabric bags or lunchboxes.

Regards,

Mr McGill
