Welcome to Class 6!
Welcome to the Class 6 Home Page and final term of Y6!
Here you will find all of the information you need to know about Class 6.
Our learning journey for the Summer Term is all about rivers and sustainability. Here, we will be learning about the actions of a river, how we can live more sustainably, studying electricity and producing artwork.
Whilst the first few weeks will be dedicated to SAT's, we have a range of exciting learning planned for afterwards including fundraising, a production and the transition to Wales (or otherwise).
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) and then transition to high school. The SAT's will be in the week of May the 9th.
To support your child in their preparation for these assessments...
...practise maths facts using 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 a certain number of 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, ...), where Covid allows.
Our P.E. days are Monday (outside) and Tuesday (inside). 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.
