Year 6 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 6.
Staying hydrated throughout the day is important, therefore children are able to bring water bottles into class and keep them on their desks. Children who bring a packed lunch to school are able to store them in class. If your child has a school dinner, please ensure they have ordered their food before school. Feel free to provide your child with tissues and hand sanitiser to use in class.
I would like children to read some of their reading book every night – ideally a few chapters. There are many different advantages to reading at home and it is important for the children to have the time to sit down and read for at least 10 minutes each night. Children’s planners are checked every morning as they enter class, each time your child reads they will move up our class reading log.
Homework in Year 6 consists of research based around a new subject each half term that has to be completed each week. Accompanied with maths homework that is usually linked to what we have learnt the previous week or a reading comprehension. Homework will be handed out every Friday and is to be handed in by the following Thursday morning at the latest.
Although I welcome as much research as your child is willing to complete, I do however expect at least 1 page of good quality work each week. To assist the children in their research they are allowed to borrow a non –fiction book from class or use the internet to research information.
Year 6 PE is on a Friday morning with Mr Belston. Continuing from last year, children are expected to come into school in their PE kit. Please ensure that your child is wearing correct PE kit for every lesson. If there are any issues with kit, please let me know.
Additional support at home
There are also other ways to support your child’s learning:
- At the back of their school planner you will find spellings, a multiplication table and shapes and their properties that you can practise at home
- TTrockstars is a fantastic way for children to become more fluent in their multiplication recall skills
- Spelling Shed is an online spelling game that the children can practise their weekly spellings
Usernames and passwords can be found at the back of your child’s planner.
I am looking forward to teaching the children this year and I hope that they will find it enjoyable and have a 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 get in touch. I am always available after school for a chat.
