We are funny, we are bright, in year 6, we get things right!

 

Attitudes and values are what you need to know,

If you follow them, they will show you where to go.

Love, honesty, respect and courage,

These are some of the things we try to encourage.

(children of year 6)

Our topic is ‘Battle of Britain’.

This topic is history based. This will be a development study where we will look at the Second World War from the causes to the outbreak of war until the impact the war had on a post-war Britain.

Science will be taught discreetly as opposed to within our topic. Our science unit for this half term is electricity.

Books: Our daily reader is ‘How I saved the World in a Week’ and our writing will be focused on ‘Rose Blanche’.

Homework Information:

Homework: Homework will continue to be set weekly. However, children will be asked to complete weekly assignments rather than the usual homework which has been set so far this year. This is to get them more ready for secondary school and get them used to the types of homework which will be set next year.

Reading: We will have guided reading 4 times a week where children will be heard to read for part of the lesson at least once a week. We expect that every child should have a reading book in school which they can read for the pleasure. Each child will also now have a levelled reading book for them to read. They should still be heard to read at home which should be recorded in their reading records.

English: Every week, there will be homework set on www.spag.com Children will have their logins stuck into their homework diaries.

Maths: Mathletics homework will also be set on www.matheletics.com and www.ttrockstars.com to be completed throughout the week. Login details for these will also be in your child’s homework diaries.

Spellings: These will be given out every Monday to be learnt over the week and then tested the following Monday. We will have spelling lessons 4 times a week, these may sometimes link to the spellings your child has to learn.

 PE:

PE will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please ensure that your child is sent into school on those days wearing their PE kit. During the winter months, PE may sometimes still be outside, so please consider a tracksuit for those colder periods. Swimming will also be on Tuesdays. Due to the timetabling of swimming lessons, children will miss their Tuesday PE lesson every 3rd week.
