In Year Six, we expect children to undertake regular homework activities and spend quality time reading, learning spellings and practising times tables.

Times Tables Practice - https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
Spellings will be sent home usually on a Monday; we will have used the words for handwriting and to learn some strategies during that day.
We will then have a test the following Monday; this allows a week to learn the spellings. For the Autumn Term, we will be using the words from list 5&6 and we will do 10 spellings each week. The words will be arranged into spelling patterns with some additional words to support.
The full spelling lists can be found at the top of this page and we will also post the weekly list to this page with the test date as a reminder.
We will send home a short reading task on a Monday. Children need to submit this by the following Monday and we will spend time on a Monday marking and discussing the work.
We expect all children to complete time on Timestable Rockstars to build fluency in multiplication. Children should aim for at least three times a week, 20 minutes each.
Monday 9th November
We have started the new half term and already time is flying by. Year Six started The GREAT Project and for four weeks, will work with an outside provider to look at safe and respectful relationships.
We are also in the middle of our 'Passport to the World' topic and this week will see the children take part in a Samba Drumming workshop. We will also be looking at, and cooking traditional food from South America.
We also have our assessments this week and the children will take mock SATs tests. Please remember that next week is Parents' Evening and if you have not already done so, contact your class teacher to arrange a 'virtual' appointment.
To ensure a good airflow in our classrooms (Covid) we are keeping doors and windows open. Please ensure that children have a jumper with them in these colder months.
