Welcome to the Year 6 class page!   

This term, we will be finding out about The Victorians in Topic; Electricity in science andin RE we will be asking ‘Where, how and why do people worship?' In English, we will be studying the Highway Man and we will be writing newspaper reports around this poem. Following this we will be creating explanation texts around a book called "The Dragon Machine" In Maths, we will be focusing on place value and then we will focus on all four calculations, including mental arithmetic.  
 
 
Teachers: 
This term, the children will be taught by Mrs King on Monday, Tuesday and Friday, and Mrs Sheperd on Wednesday and Thursday. Mrs Wainwright, Mrs Addison, Mrs Gilbert, Mrs King and Mrs Newton will support the class throughout the week. Please do not hesitate to contact us via the office or in person after school if you need to speak to us about anything. 
 
Equipment: 
It would be really helpful if your child brings in a pencil case to the classroom. A reminder that the pencil case should be small enough to fit easily into their drawer and should contain ONLY the following equipment (pens and pencils will be provided by the school at the beginning of each term): 
 
Black handwriting pens (NO biros please) 
Pencil 
Coloured pencils 
Eraser 
Small ruler 
Protractor 
 
PE: 
Please ensure that your child has the correct PE kit in school at all times. This half term, PE will be OUTSIDE on Mondays and inside on Wednesdays. We will try to let your child know in advance if this changes. 
 
Indoor PE kit should be: 
White t-shirt and blue or black shorts. 
 
Outdoor PE kit should be: 
White t shirt, navy/black jogging bottoms and jumper, suitable trainers 
 
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 
 
 
 

 

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 
Homework will be set on Fridays and should be handed in by the following Wednesday. 
Pupils will be set spellings, reading and topic on a weekly basis and will be expected to practise their times tables on TT Rockstars. Please see below for more information: 
 
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 three a week. Parents should use the home-school communication book to express any concerns or highlight things well done. 
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.
