Welcome to Class 6!
Welcome to the Class 6 Home Page and first term of Y6.
Here you will find all of the information you need to know about Class 6.
Mrs Watts, Mrs Dewsnap and myself are looking forward to July 14th when we start!
Our learning journey for the first term is called 'Does Adversity Make Us Stronger?'
We will be learning about Eyam and The Plague of 1665.
Things you can do at home to support your child:
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...
...practise the times tables using TTRockstars or Maths Shed (this develops the rapid recall required to support their calculating skills)...
...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.
Again this year, we are continuing to aim to achieve all of the reading badges on our Reading Champions Chart. In order to achieve the badges and become a Reading Champion, reading record books need to be signed by an adult and brought in to school regularly (ideally every day).
In Y6, our children are given the opportunity to become prefects and, for the chosen ones (chosen by staff), 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 (including completing any homework tasks set), they will receive a prefect star. Additional prefect stars will be awarded every time a Reading Champion badge is achieved. After they have achieved 10 prefect stars, the children can apply to become a prefect and receive their prefect badge. The children are also asked to take on additional responsibilities in school (playground leaders, reading with KS1 children, ...).
Our P.E. days are <to be decided>. Please ensure that your child has both their indoor and outdoor in school all week though as this may change.
If you have any questions or concerns about your child or their learning, please do not hesitate to contact us.
