Welcome to Class 6!
Welcome to the Class 6 home page. Here you will find all of the information you need to know about Class 6.
Mrs Armstrong is the class teacher supported by Mrs Hales and Mrs Mander.
For the first half term, our learning journey is 'Rainforests'. We will be learning all about these incredible places and the species which inhabit them as well as discovering how they are currently being destroyed and what actions we can take to protect them.
As you know, Y6 is the year that the children take their end of KS2 assessments (SATs) in May. To support your child in their preparation for these assessments, homework will be set to consolidate and further practise classroom learning. Alongside reading daily, the children will be given Maths homework every Friday and asked to complete one online lesson of 'Bedrock' once per week.
Things you can do at home to support your child:
-Practise the times tables using TTRockstars (this develops the rapid recall required to support their calculating skill)
-Practise the spelling rules taught using Spelling Shed. Key spellings will also be placed inside your child's reading record (half termly). These are the statutory spellings for the National Curriculum.
-Read daily, either listening to your child read or discussing what they have read independently.
The children will have the opportunity to choose books from our 'Recommended Reads' to promote reading for pleasure. These books can be enjoyed by the children independently or shared with an adult.
We are, once again, holding the Reading Challenge. In order to achieve the badges and complete the challenge, reading record books need to be signed by an adult and brought in to school at least once per week (ideally every day as they will be written in during in class reading sessions).
In Y6, our children are given the opportunity to become prefects and, for the lucky chosen ones, Head Boy and Head Girl. To earn a prefect badge, the children must be good role models for the younger children in school and always give 100% effort to their learning. At the end of every week, if they have been good role models, both inside school and in the playground, and applied themselves to their learning, they will receive a prefect star. Additional prefect stars will be awarded every time a reading challenge badge is achieved. After they have achieved 8 prefect stars, the children can apply for their prefect badge. The children are also asked to take on additional responsibilities in school e.g. playground leaders, reading with KS1 children etc.
Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has both their indoor and outdoor P.E. kit in school on these days.
Below you will find links to the long term plan for the year and the half termly overview plans.
If you have any questions or concerns about your child or their learning, please do not hesitate to come and see me.
We are looking forward to a fun-filled, exciting year!
