Christ at the heart of all we do

Welcome to Year 6 Class

Welcome to Year 6! We are taught by Mrs Kelly and we are supported by Mrs Room.  Mrs Room also teaches us when Mrs Kelly is completing her planning and preparation.

We follow the the school ethos 'Christ at the Heart of All We Do'  to ensure that we can complete our learning to the best of our ability.

General Information

The Year 6 children have settled in really well and adapted quickly to their new routine. It’s hard to believe some of them haven’t been in school since March – well done Year 6 for displaying such impressive resilience and adaptability!

Here are a few pieces of useful information:

Reading books

Your child will have a reading book and reading record and it’s really important that they are encouraged to read at home as often as possible. Some children in Year 6 are no longer reading books from the school reading scheme and they have been given a book of their choice from the class library. We want to instil in all our children a love of reading, so it is perfectly fine if they choose to read at home something they particularly like rather than their school reading book.  If your child chooses to do this, could the title of the book be recorded in their reading record – thank you.

Spellings

As last year, the children will be following the school spelling scheme throughout Year 6. Your child should bring home their spelling folder on Monday and complete the homework activity each evening. They will be tested each Friday in school.

Snacks

All children are encouraged to bring into school a snack of fresh fruit or vegetables which can be eaten at break time. Could we please remind you that this is fresh fruit and veg only.

Water

It’s important that your child remains hydrated during the day. Please ensure your child has a reusable water bottle in school each day clearly labelled with their name. and containing water only. Your child should bring this home each evening so the bottle can be cleaned and refilled.

Rucksacks

Just a polite reminder that rucksacks and very large bags are not allowed in school. We simply do not have the room to accommodate them.

If you need to speak to me, please arrange this through the school office and I will contact you as soon as possible.

Curriculum Information

Below you will find some useful information regarding the content and expectations of the Year 6 Maths and English curriculums.

Literacy 

Maths

Wider Curriculum 

In the wider curriculum this half term, the children will be studying the Second World War in History and in Science they will be looking at the human body, and at the circulatory system in particular. The science topic will also involve looking closely at the importance of a healthy diet and regular physical exercise in maintaining a strong and healthy heart. It would enhance your child’s knowledge and understanding of these topics if you could encourage them to carry out further research and reading at home. Thank you!

 

Key Learning in Science Year 6

At the start of our topic on the human circulatory system, the children shared their prior knowledge with their classmates. 

Booster classes

In Year 6, there will be booster sessions in both English and Maths which the children can attend on two afternoons after school. These are really valuable sessions which are run by a teacher and, best of all, are completely free! Please make the most of this opportunity to enhance and extend your child's numeracy and literacy skills.

We have not yet finalised the arrangements for this year's booster classes, but further information will be available soon. Watch this space!
