Welcome to Year 6!
We are so excited about the year ahead - hope you are all too!
Our teachers in Year 6 are Ms Nash & Mr Shilton (6P), Miss Sheikh (6L) and Mrs Johnson (6T). We are delighted to welcome Miss Avery to our team this year as well. She will work mainly in 6P. Mrs Bielecka and Mrs Bonsai will work with us too in the mornings. Senora Cameron, Mrs Marriott and Mr Sawford will teach each class for a 4 week block on Wednesday afternoons.
Our Parent Curriculum Video will be published soon with information about each of the subjects and how exactly year 6 work:
We are currently having Yoga and Mindfulness lessons on a Tuesday afternoon which we are all finding so much fun and relaxing. We will also be developing our fundamental skills on a Friday afternoon. Please come to school for this half-term only in PE kit on TUESDAYS AND FRIDAYS.
This will be set on Friday and then handed in on Thursday with a spelling test on Friday. Each week there will be spellings and maths homework. The maths will be set on MyMaths on alternate weeks. The rest of your homework should be completed in your homework book. Science homework is set fortnightly. We will occasionally set homework linked to our topics but will allow for this by not setting other work at the same time.
Maths - KIRFS
This year we will be sharing half termly support sheets for maths called KIRFs. This stands for key instant recall facts. Please click on the KIRFs tab to see this half term's. These should help you to focus on some important facts which you need to know off by heart for success in maths.
We highly recommend the website http://www.lovereading4kids.co.uk as it has a constantly updated recommended reads list, including synopsis and book extracts to see if you like it! There are age-appropriate book recommendations on the left-hand side.
