Welcome to the Year 6 Homepage
Welcome to the Summer Term!
The Land of the Free
We would like to welcome you back to the Summer term at Montgomerie!
We will soon be starting our Summer term topic entitled 'the Land of the Free' where we will learn all about Civil Rights in History; plan, design and make American recipes in D&T; learn about the style of key artists from the USA; and investigate the USA in our Geography lessons. In science, we will be completing a unit of work on Light and the Human Body. Whilst E-safety will continue to be our priority in ICT, we will also be using our ICT to support our learning in other subjects. We will be reading 'Holes' by Louis Sachar in our Active Read sessions.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS/CARERS:
- Please ensure ALL items of uniform including coats, shoes, water bottles and lunch boxes are clearly named.
- Children must come to school wearing their P.E kit on their P.E days. For Year 6, these will be on a Monday and Friday for the first half of the Summer Term. Please remember, children need to have removed earrings prior to coming to school on these days and wear suitable PE kit for colder days, as we will still be trying to go outside as much as possible.
- Children are required to bring in their reading planner, reading book and spelling journal each day.
- Your child's lunchbox and water bottles must be wipeable.
Extended Learning Expectations
Reading and recording in planners - the minimum expectation for year 6 children is for 20 minutes, five times per week to become a Star Reader. Children can write their own reading comments in planners and parents/carers can make comments too.
Spellings: these need to be practised regularly in the spelling journal
Other homework will either be in their homework books, which will be given out every Friday or on SATs Companion. Homework tasks are to be completed by the following Wednesday.
If you need to speak to a teacher, appointments for a mutually convenient time can be made via the office. Alternatively, email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are very much looking forward to a great term!
