Please see our latest topic curriculum plan in the files.
A reminder that we start lessons at 8.45am and finish at 3.10pm.
PE will be on a Wednesday, so you need to wear your PE kit all day on Wednesdays and school uniform on the other days.
The children will also continue attending Forest School on a Monday afternoon. Please remember to wrap up warm and wear shoes that will keep you warm and dry (not PE trainers!).
Please bring a named water bottle to school every day.
I would like to invite all of year 6 to our Friday fitness sessions on the MUGGA at 8.30am – parents are welcome too!
Our topic/focus this half term will be 'Survival!', where our studies will include Brazil, Antarctica and the explorer Shackleton.
Homework: (All due in on Mondays)
Please keep reading and enjoying books at home. We expect each child to read at least four times a week and would like them to complete their reading record book. This book can be used for a record of what books have been read, book reviews, vocabulary collections and character analysis etc. We would like to encourage them to make these record books a useful resource so that when they are writing they can use them for ideas.
Read theory (https://readtheory.org/) is a useful website as it has questions to go with each text. Some children will continue their membership of Reading Plus (www.readingplus.com) which I would encourage them to use both in school at home as this is a paid resource and has proved to have very positive results. Here is a suggested booklist for reading if you need some good ideas. https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/reading-lists-for-ks2-school-pupils/suggested-reading-list-for-year-6-pupils-ks2-age-10-11/ Here is a link to some free online books too. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/
The children will also be given some spelling or grammar work each week and would like them to bring the file in on a Monday ready for the next set of homework to be put in later in the week.
Please continue to work on times tables knowledge. It is very important for the children to know their times tables and the inverse at speed. (7x8=56 and 56÷8=7 etc)
Some useful websites to help with learning times tables are:
