Important Information

Timings

  • Year 6 arrive by the normal pedestrian gate and will enter the school at the far side of the playground by the basketball hoops.
  • Please arrive punctually at 8.45
  • Children should be supervised until they enter the school building
  • Children should be collected at 3.15pm at the same side gate

 

Belongings

Please send children in with the following:

  • A coat – this can be a warm coat or rain jacket
  • Healthy packed lunch, water bottle and healthy snack – 1 sweet treat is enough with lunch. We prefer children to fill their water bottles before lunch and we ask that sugary drinks are avoided. Fizzy drinks should not be brought in at all.
  • Reading record (filled in each day) and reading book
  • Children should wear PE kit on PE days – please see separate section
  • Specialist equipment requested by an adult for that day e.g. musical instrument

Please don’t send children to school with the following:

  • Pencil cases or any other stationary – school will provide this
  • Anything other than water in a child’s water bottle. This includes squash.
  • Unnecessary items e.g. fluffy keyrings, toys or balls
  • Overly large bags – we have small lockers and some bags will not fit into them

 

PE Kit

  • Children should wear their full PE kits for the full day on PE days.
  • Children can wear shorts, T shirts and trainers or plimsols.
  • As weather cools down, they can wear tracksuits, jogging bottoms, leggings and sports jumpers.
  • If children are partaking in outdoor PE, they can bring another pair of socks and shoes as their feet may become wet or muddy.
  • We remind parents that we enjoy outdoor learning in all weathers and children should be prepared for this.

Maths

 

We will be starting the term with Position and Direction - working on the position of co-ordinates in all four quadrants, translation and reflection.

 

Then we will be moving on to Number - decimals, multiplying and dividing decimals, decimals as fractions and percentage including percentage of an amount.

 

 

Times Table Check

 

Times table Rockstars is up and running and we encourage all children to practice as much as possible to cement their understanding of Multiplication and Division. Log-ons can be found in your child's reading diary.

 

English

In English this half-term we will be reading the excellent novel Skellig by David Almond:

 

 

We will start off by writing setting descriptions

 

Spellings

 

Spellings will be issued after a recap of sounds and letter combinations that children need support with. They will change weekly and homework will be through The Spelling Shed (Log-ons are in student diaries).

Reading

 

We encourage reading to take place at least 5 times a week. We ask for your support in logging it in their reading records which they should bring to school daily. Reading Eggs is still an option if you are looking for reading material - Reading Egg log-ons are in student diaries.

Handwriting

 

We follow the Letterjoin handwriting program. It develops a cursive handwriting style.
