Year Six 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year Six
I hope that you have all had a lovely summer break and are ready to work hard this year! I'm really looking forward to having you all back in school and getting back to a normal routine.
As the oldest children, this is an important year for all the children and I hope they all enjoy the year and work hard in achieving their potential to become strong, independent learners. Remember... practise makes perfect! The children will be using the carpark entrance as they did last year, this will be open from 08:55 and the children will leave school through the same gate at 15:00. If your child walks home on their own, please contact school or you can give access via ParentPay.
It is important they build on solid foundations from previous years and work hard to help prepare for life at high school. It will be extremely helpful if you are able to continue to support your child at home by continually monitoring reading and progress with any homework. The children have all been given their access details for Times Tables Rockstars, Numbots, StudyLadder and MyMaths, so please encourage them to use them all at home.
The children will also be using Accelerated Reader throughout the year to assess their reading level. The children will have access to the online tests in school and we will complete a baseline test during the first week to see their current reading level. Everyone should be reading at least twenty minutes per day and this can be logged in their reading record. The children will be receiving a half termly set of spellings to learn over the weeks. Tests will be completed on a Wednesday.
This term we are focusing on the World War Two and the impact it had here in Manchester. There are many interesting facts to discover and learn about and children will be asked to engage in some research projects at home over half-term.
Our weekly routine will be...
- Wednesday- Homework handed in the black tray in the classroom with completed homework tasks (with their name clearly written on). Some homework may be online.
- Tuesday and Friday- Children should arrive in school in full P.E. kits (white t-shirts, black/ navy shorts or tracksuit bottoms during the Winter months and trainers or black pumps). Children must not wear any hooded jumper or jackets but instead their school jumper. Regular school uniform is not required on these days.
- Friday- Reading records will be monitored and children will have a chance to change reading books, if required. Children will also receive their homework on Fridays with tasks to be completed at home.
Please keep your eye on our class page and blog to keep up-to-date with any news or exciting activities that are happening.
As always, if you need anything, please feel free to phone the school or email me directly, email@example.com
These websites will help us with our work throughout the year.
