Year 6B 2019 - 2020
Welcome to 6B!
We hope you all have had a lovely summer with your families and are looking forward to your last year at primary school! We have a very busy year ahead, one which I am sure you are excited for, with lots of events and activities planned.
Our topic for this term is called, 'War: What is it good for?'
As part of our topic we will be reading Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo. In our topic sessions, we will be looking at why WW2 started; the impact this had on the lives of the people in Britain and some of the changes that occured due to the war; the food and rationing; the countries invaded by Hitler; and the impact evacuation had on children.
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
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.
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 should have a pair of outdoor shoes and a coat in school for play times and lunch times.
