Year 6B 2019 - 2020
Welcome to 6B!
Happy New Year to you and your families. We hope you have had a lovely Christmas break. We have a busy term, with plenty to get through. We will be drawing on all four animals to help us with our learning this term.
Our topic for this term is called, 'Castles, creatures and curious diseases.'
The book we will be reading as part of our topic work is called, 'A Darkness of Dragons (Songs of Magic)'.
As well as reading our text, we will be learning all about The Medieval Ages or The Middle Ages in our topic work and what life was like during that period of history. We will be looking at the locations of counties on an English map as well as locating castles. We will spend some time looking at mythical creatures and how these appear in legends that have been carried through different periods of history.
Adults that work with Year 6:
- Mrs Pass (Volunteer)
- Miss Baker on inference (Reading comprehension)
- Mrs Gawn - English boosters
- Mrs Nicholls - English boosters
- Miss Chapman - Maths booster
- Mrs Thomas - Writing booster
- Miss Negus - Associate Teacher from Chester University (every Tuesday)
Please see details regarding boosters on the booster tab.
In Year 6, the children will receive a topic homework grid each term, with a focus on the current topic. Alongside this homework, the children have weekly Maths and English homework set.
As the children will have weekly homework, we ask them to only complete 6 points of their grid. If they would like to complete more, this is their own choice.
The weekly tasks will have a focus on something that we are working on in class or as a revision of something we have previously covered. The tasks will range from online games or challenges to written tasks or reasoning and problem solving.
On Monday, maths will be sent home and is to be returned on Thursday. On Thursday, English will be sent home and is to be returned on the following Monday.
The children will be given 15 weekly spellings with a focus of a rule or spelling pattern. These will be stuck into their home-school diary. A copy of each week's spellings will be uploaded to the 'spelling' tab at the top of this page.
The children are encouraged to read as much as possible at home, at least 3 times a week, and to keep a record of this in their diaries. We have a class library that the children can choose from or it can be a book they have from home. The diaries are signed weekly and I will be looking for a record of reading. There is also a section for parents to sign each week.
There are also some suggested reading books for Year 6 children which can be found under the 'reading' tab at the top of this page.
Please remember to take your diaries home and bring them back to school every day. These can be used as a means of communication for short notes or updates from both school and home. In the weekly pages, the children are encouraged to record when they have spent time reading at school or at home.
All children have been provided with a school water bottle where a donation of £1 will be put towards the running of the water filter machines. Water bottles should go home on a Friday for a wash and be returned back to school on a Monday. The water bottles will have fresh water every day.
Our PE sessions are on a Monday and Tuesday. Please make sure you have your PE kit in school Monday to Friday as there may be other sessions the children may require a kit or trainers. Please ensure all kit is named.
Outdoor shoes and coats
All children can have a pair of outdoor shoes and should have a coat in school for play times and lunch times.
