Hello and Welcome back,

 

The staff in Year 6 would like to take this opportunity to say hello and a big welcome back to the year group. We have many exciting things planned for the year and hope your children will share these experiences with you on a regular basis.

 

Pupils will need to bring into school:

 

A bottle of fresh water every day for the classroom

One small bag for their belongings

If it is raining or cold, a coat.

 

Weekly routines:


P.E. will be on Monday afternoon

 

Games will be on a Wednesday afternoon.

 

 

During these unprecedented times P.E. kit will simply be:

Normal school uniform polo shirt and sweatshirt with tracksuit bottoms / shorts (in a dark colour) and trainers. They should wear these on their PE days rather than full school uniform for minimal changing / movement.

 

In Year 6 this year our topics will be:


Autumn: Victorians (History) Earthquakes (Geography)
Spring:  WW2 (History) Italy (Geography)
Summer: Windrush generation (History) Globalisation.

 


Times Tables
The expectation is that the children will be fluent in their recall of the times tables facts up to 12 x 12 and the  corresponding division facts before they get to year 6. Obviously, this is easier for some children than others so regular practice is still of great benefit.

 

There are many different ways of learning these such as web-based games, like TTRockstars, and in a rote format.

 

In class, we follow the ‘Diamond Challenge’.


Communication
If you wish to speak to your child’s class teacher, please make an appointment via the school office or through Class Dojo.

 


We are looking forward to a fantastic year and thank you in advance for all the support you give to your child’s learning at home.
