Year Six Information
Welcome to Year Six!
We are excited for the children to begin Year Six and we are sure the children will have a fantastic year, learning lots and making lovely memories. Listed below is some key information for routines and systems in Year Six. If you have any queries, please message via SeeSaw or write a note in your child's Learning Journal.
Class Teachers: Miss Williams (mornings and afternoons) Miss Murphy (mornings)
Miss Barton (Wednesday afternoons)
It is really important that the children bring their Learning Journals and reading books into school every day. Home reading should be recorded in Learning Journals and signed by an adult. Learning Journals are checked every Monday morning!
If your child has earned or lost behaviour points, these will be recorded in the behaviour section of their Learning Journal.
Home reading books
We will send one reading book home each week on a Thursday. It is vital that your child has their reading book in their book bag on this day to ensure that their old books can be quarantined, and new books distributed.
Please try to hear your child read at least 5 times a week. It is part of the home-school agreement to read frequently at home, and this makes a big difference in many aspects of your child’s development. All children who read 5 times in the week will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a fortnightly book prize. Year 6 children may read independently but we kindly ask if you are able to sign their journals to evidence this.
Unfortunately, no library books will be taken home until further notice, although the children will still have access to library books in school on their allocated day.
We are continuing with Times Table Rock Stars which means that it is important that your child accesses this programme as often as possible from home. This will support your child's progress and boost their confidence in maths.
Spelling tests will take place every Friday. Spelling sheets will be sent home at the start of every half term (a copy will also be uploaded to the Year Six 'Home Learning' page).
Year 6 will be swimming on a Tuesday this term. Please ensure your child has their full swimming kit including swimming goggles and swimming cap and a reminder that no jewellery is allowed.
At the beginning of each half term, your child will bring home a Knowledge Organiser for history, geography and science. This A4 sheet will include the key knowledge that your child will be gaining during their current unit of work. Your child will be expected to remember as much of this as possible, so independent study will be very useful!
