Welcome to our Year 6
This is a busy, yet rewarding year for the children, where we hope to see them achieve their very best. We also endeavour to prepare all children for a very smooth transition towards the next phase of their lives: secondary school.
Homework is an important part of this transition and we value the support that you can give, when prompting your child and assisting them with any homework. Below is a useful reference of the days for various homework tasks, which the children will be given in Year 6 this year:
At the start of each half term our spelling lists for that half term are given out. We stick these in your child's Reading Record. They are tested every Friday on the words for that week.
In addition each child has a spelling homework book. The spellings for each half-term are also stuck in here. Each week your child can choose from the different spelling activities and complete this in their spelling homework book.
Weekly tasks will be allocated on SPAG.com on a Monday for completion by the following Monday.
Children are to work through the reading comprehension tasks in the booklet at their own pace, in an order of their choosing. Our expectation is that one task is completed each fortnight. We will ask the children to bring the booklets in on occasions to monitor.
The children are also expected to read for at least thirty minutes each day. At this stage in their education, they may choose to write in their reading records themselves as evidence of this. We do ask that you listen and discuss the texts with your child, and that you sign the reading record at least once a week.
In addition to this, it is vital that the children know ALL their times tables and related division facts. These are very important in Year 6 as they speed up calculations across a range of topics in mathematics. We will be doing spot check on times tables throughout the week so please remind your child to practise these regularly via TTRockstars or written methods.
Please be advised that homework is an important part of the learning process in Year 6, therefore should children not complete homework, their attendance will be compulsory at the next Homework Club during lunchtimes. Thank you in advance for your support with this.
P.E will be taught on Wednesdays and Fridays.
At the end of the day
Parents wait and collect their children outside the classrooms. All children need to be collected by an adult unless we have written permission that your child can walk home.
Please let the office know if collection arrangements change or if you are running late. If you have any concerns, please leave a message with the office who can arrange a time to speak with us.
