In Maths we will be focusing on covering all the knowledge needed and developing our skills to apply this knowledge to real life problems.
PE and Games
The children will be working on tag rugby skills this term alongside football on a Friday with Mr Bandfield. The children also have the opportunity to take part in hockey club on a Tuesday lunchtime. If your child would like to take part in this they will need a moulded gum shield and a pair of shin pads as we play with hard sticks and balls.
Spellings will be given every week on a Friday for a test on Friday.
Times tables for the week will be tested on a Thursday.
Maths home learning will be set on a Friday, ready to be handed in on Wednesday.
English homework will be set on a Wednesday to be completed by Monday.
Children are expected to read every night and will also be set reading homework on a Monday with comprehension questions. This should be handed in on a Wednesday marked by a parent or guardian to show it has been supported - answer books have been sent home for you.
This may seem unnecessary complicated but it does help prepare the children for how homework is set at secondary school. Homework for the week is summarised on our class page. However, homework should also be recorded in the children's homework diaries.
Please make sure your child is reading on a daily basis.
In year 6 we still hope that children are 'heard' read at least 2/3 times a week at other times they may be reading independently.
Please sign their homework diary to record this is being done. Homework diaries will be checked weekly- please help your child to make sure they are in school everyday.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need to discuss anything -
If you feel you are able to offer some of your valuable time to listen to readers in school, offer a club or help in any other way, please contact me.
Have fun learning together!
