Parent Curriculum Video

Please spend some time watching our curriculum video.  This will give you an overview of life in year 6, the curriculum we will be covering, details of exciting year 6 events and ways you can support your child during this important last year at Heymann:

PE

We are currently working on gymnastics on a Thursday afternoon. We will also be developing our tag rugby skills on a Tuesday afternoon with coaches from Nottingham Rugby Club. Please come to school for this half-term in PE kit on TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS. 

Homework

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.
