In Year 6, P.E. is on Monday and Friday. Please ensure your child has and wears the correct kit at all times. (See PE poster for more details).
All clothing and footwear should be clearly named. All jewellery must be removed for P.E. and long hair must be tied back.
Weekly homework tasks:
- Daily reading at home (home reading book) to an adult
- Spellings (tested weekly)
- TT Rockstars
- Half termly learning log (this will be linked to the themes for the half term)
Daily reading: Your child will receive a home reading book and record. Please hear your child read at home on a regular basis (ideally 5-10 minutes every day) and sign their reading record. When your child has finished their book, they need to hand it in to Miss Mitchell or Mrs Layfield who will change it.
Spellings: We use the No Nonsense Spelling scheme in school. We will be learning words in class that follow a particular pattern/rule. These words, along with a range of others, including Year 5 and 6 statutory words will be tested each week on a Friday. The words and test dates for each week are in the spelling booklets which have been sent home. A copy can also be found on this page.
TT Rockstars / times tables: Please encourage your child to learn all of the times tables (up to 12x12) and their related division facts. This will help your child in several aspects of mathematics. All children have been give a login for Times Table Rock Stars but please feel free to practise in whichever way you feel suits your child.
Half-termly learning log: A 'learning log' will be set each half term. This will be a project or piece of work for the children to complete at home. If you wish to help them and be involved, that's great! Alternatively, the children can complete it independently. It will be sent home in the first week or two of the half term. Children can now upload their completed learning logs onto Seesaw rather than bringing them into school.
