 Year 6 - 2018 / 2019

Hello and welcome to the year 6 page.

Our teaching team consists of Mrs Uppal, Miss Knight and Miss Cagan. 

This year our topics are:

  • Term 1 – World War 2
  • Term 2 – World War 2
  • Term 3 – Extreme Environments
  • Term 4 – The Victorians
  • Term 5 - Animation
  • Term 6 – Chocolate

PE is timetabled for Monday and Games for Tuesday. Children will need indoor kits (Plimsolls, T-shirt and shorts) for Monday and outdoor kits (trainers, T-shirts and shorts or tracksuit-type trousers and a top/sweatshirt) for Tuesday. If children do not have the correct kit, they will not be able to take part in the sessions. Long hair needs to be tied back and earrings either need to be taken out or ‘taped’ with micropore tape brought from home.

Homework

 A vital skill for everybody now is rapid recall of times tables.  This means children have to be able to respond quickly to quick-fire questions in order to apply their knowledge efficiently in Maths.  Knowing their times tables in any order is the aim and to this effect children are expected to practise their times tables at home.

Reading Logs need to be brought to school every-day and children have been asked to record their reading throughout the week in their reading logs, whether they read independently or to an adult. It would be very much appreciated if the reading logs are signed by an adult.

Spelling

We will be providing children with a copy of the year 5/6 spelling word lists and hope by the end of the year they are able to spell the majority of the words on the list. It would benefit the children to practice writing their spellings and using them in sentences. They may also need to use their dictionary skills to find definitions of the words.

Our first topic is World War 2 which we will be doing over the next two terms. If you have any resources you could bring in, or relatives who have any memories of that time, that would be fantastic. It is always great to read stories from family members and see photos from that era.

 If you have any questions/queries or worries, please speak to us at the end of the day or make an appointment.

We look forward to a busy and exciting year.
