Year 6 2023 - 2024
Welcome to our Year 6 class page
Our class teachers are Mrs. Mather and Mrs. Gaskell and our teaching assistant is Mr. Wolfe
Our theme this half-term is Talent and our Big Question is 'Talent - Nature or Nurture?'
Homework will be set on a Friday and is due in on a Thursday. All homework details are posted on the website (through the pupil login tab)and will consist of allocated pages from our Maths CGP book, reading CGP book and a grammar CGP book. Alongside these, we will share details on the website (through the pupil login tab) of spelling activities related to our week's learning and Times Table Rockstar challenges.
Regular reading is strongly encouraged in Year 6. Take a look at a recommended list of 100 books to read in Year 5/6 in the documents section. Pupils need to log onto the GoApps (https://pupils.goapps.app/) website and record their reading throughout the week.
Attached below are the Year 5/6 statutory spellings which we learn to spell and use continuously. We also investigate different spelling rules and patterns every week which we will keep you updated with through the website (pupil login tab). In the documents below there are a selection of spelling strategies which we use in school to support your spelling learning at home.
In Year 6, it is essential that the children are now fluent in all of their times tables and corresponding division facts. Please encourage your child to maintain their times tables knowledge at home through using Times Table Rockstar.
The Maths Factor is a great tool for developing instant recall and identifying gaps in knowledge and have a look at these games https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button, https://www.topmarks.co.uk/times-tables/coconut-multiples and https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/306/Maths-Fishing-Multiplication.
Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure children come to school dressed in full PE kit on these days.
In the downloads section below, you will find several knowledge organisers linked to the content covered in some of the subjects this term. These will give a little more insight and support yourselves and the children in learning and retaining key knowledge.
Just a reminder to send your child with a filled water bottle at the start of each day so thet they can have a drink of water as required throughout the day.
