Welcome to the Year 6 class page!   

This term, we will be finding out about Ancient Maya in Topic; Evolution and Inheritance in science and Buddhism and ‘What happens when we die?’ in RE. In English, we will be studying a book called and then ‘The Storm Keeper’s Island’ and we will be exploring lots of genres of writing through this text. In Maths, we will be focusing on decimals, percentages, algebra, measurement, ratio, geometry and statistics. Please note there will be a big push on preparing for the Year 6 SATs in reading, writing and maths. 
 
 
Teachers: 
This term, the children will be taught by Mrs Jones on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Mrs Haupt on Thursday and Friday. Mrs McCrum and Mrs Wainwright will support the class throughout the week.

Equipment: 
It would be really helpful if your child brings in a pencil case to the classroom.

PE: 
Please ensure that your child has the correct PE kit in school at all times. This half term, PE will usually be OUTSIDE onTuesdays and Wednesdays. We will try to let your child know in advance if this changes. 
 
Indoor PE kit should be: 
White t-shirt and blue shorts. 
 
Outdoor PE kit should be:

As always no jewellery please, except a small pair of studs for pierced ears; no nail varnish and hair tied back if below shoulder length. 
 
Letters from home: 
As the children get older, please support us in encouraging their independence and responsible attitude by ensuring you send any letters or money in with the children, so that they can hand them to us in class to deal with 
 
 
 

 What are we studying in the Spring term? 

5Rs and Housepoints 
5R awards will be given out in a celebration assembly every Friday. What could you do to challenge yourself and achieve one of the awards? 
 
In addition, this year we will be looking for the pupil with most housepoints in each class to be presented with a certificate in assembly. Will you be the top scorer? 
 
Above is the White Rose long Term plan for our Year 6 Maths curriculum coverage. This plan will be adapted to fit the pupil's needs. It is therefore a guideline to enable you to support your child at home with their Maths learning.  
Year 6 Homework 
This year pupils will be expected to 
• Complete one piece of English and one piece of maths homework each week. 
• Complete an activity linked to our current topic chosen from the grid provided. 
• Practise one page of spellings linked to that week’s focus. See spelling menu for different ways to practise them. 
• Homework will be set on Fridays and should be handed in by the following Wednesday. 
• Spellings will be tested on Wednesdays. 
• Pupils should continue to read regularly at home (a minimum of three times a week), and parents should sign reading records at least once a week. Parents should check their child’s understanding of by asking questions about the texts your child has chosen to read. If your child would prefer to use Read Theory (they became familiar with this last year) please also sign the home-school communication book to show that this has taken placed. Parents should use the home-school communication book to express any concerns or highlight things well done!  
In addition, this term we would like all children to regularly practise their times tables using Times tables Rocks Stars https://ttrockstars.com . Children’s logins for the website are the first three letters of the first name combined with the first three letters of their surname. So, for instance Sarah Brown would be SARBRO. Children should know their individual passwords.
