Welcome to Year 6

We have an exciting year ahead, crammed full of hard work and fun! Forest Schools and some High School taster days are just some of the highlights we have planned for the Autumn term. A fieldwork study of Southport's coasts along with reading the fantastic Robinson Crusoe are in store for the Spring term, swiftly followed by the much anticipated Year 6 residential trip to Conwy in July. What a fantastic year!

P.E Lessons

Year 6 currently has P.E. on a Tuesday (outdoor) and Friday (dance/gymnastics). Your child should come into school in correct kit on those days. We also complete Golden Mile on a Friday morning, there is no need for your child to come into school in P.E. kit on that day. However, they may wish to bring trainers to change in to for running the track.

Homework

Inside your child's homework folder there should be:

  • Grammar/Reading activity sheet (a new one is given in on a Thursday)
  • Fast Learning Geography (a timetable of when to complete these activities can be found in the booklet)
  • Login details to get on to Eedi.com to access the Maths homework.

Homework is given out on a Thursday, and is expected back in on a Tuesday. It is important that homework is completed and in school on time, as we go through the English homework on a Thursday Morning, and the Maths Homework on a Friday Morning. If your child is unable to complete the homework, they will be able to finish it during their lunch hour in school. If it would help them, please ask about Homework club (which takes place after school on a Thursday).

Additional learning:

  • We are continuing to use the Online Reading Record from last year. You can access the record here. We expect children to read at least three times a week.
  • Spelling booklet. Spellings are set once a week. Feel free to practice given spellings in your book. The class teacher will send home a copy of the spellings to be learnt each week. Spelling test day is Friday, which is also when new spellings will be given out.
  • TTRS - whilst we do not set homework on Times Table RockStars, it is still a fantastic resource that your children have access to. Their login details can be found on the information sheet in their Homework Folder, but please ask if you need another copy of them.
