Welcome to the Year 6 Homepage
Welcome back to the Autumn Term!
Welcome back to Year 6
We would like to welcome you back to school for the start of a new school year! We find ourselves in strange and uncertain times at the moment but we can assure you we have lots of things in place to keep us all safe whilst at school.
At the beginning of this term, we will settle into our new routines and recap on certain aspects of the previous year's curriculum that are deemed necessary to allow for progress in the current year. As we settle back in, we will focus on activities that have a positive affect on our well-being and ensure that we are all both happy and ready to learn each day. As the term progresses, we will begin our Autumn term topic entitled 'Revolution and revelations' where we will learn all about the Victorian period in History; plan, design and make Victorian food and Christmas cards in D&T, learn about the work of famous Victorian artists in Art, investigate the British Empire and find out about the life and work of one of the most influential Scientists- Charles Darwin . Whilst E-safety will continue to be our priority in ICT, we will also be using our ICT to support our earning in other subjects. We will be reading 'Brightstorm' 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 Thursday and Friday for the Autumn Term (Remember children need to remove earrings and have suitable clothing for the colder days as we will be going outside in all weathers)
They 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.
Reading books can only be changed on a Wednesday and Friday.
If you need to speak to a teacher please book a suitable time at the office or email email@example.com
Extended Learning Expectations:
Reading and recording in planners - You need to read at least 5 times a week to become a Star Reader. You can write your own reading comments in your planner and parents/carers can make comments too.
Spellings: these need to be practised regularly in the spelling journal
All other homework is listed every Friday on our Google Classroom page. Homework tasks are to be completed by the following Wednesday.
We are very much looking forward to a great year!
