Through God’s love we learn together, grow together and achieve together.

 

Welcome to year 6.  Please find an outline of the expectations for the year below.  In the tabs to the side of the page you will find links to the individual topics for the year.

Reading

Please ensure that your child reads daily.  They should be reading a variety of fiction and non-fiction books.  It is important that they read to an adult/older sibling as often as possible.  Please ask your child questions about what they have read and encourage them to give opinions about the book.

Spellings

This term your child will bring home a list of Year 5 and 6 spelling words.  They will also need to know the year 3/4 spelling list confidently.  Encourage your child to practise these words as often as possible.

P.E

Year 6 P.E lessons are on Tuesday and Thursday.  Please ensure your child has their correct kit with them on these days.  All items should be clearly labelled.

Walking home

If your child has permission to walk home on their own at the end of the school day it is essential that you provide written consent, which should be handed directly to the class teacher.  Children without written consent will not be given permission to walk home on their own.

Topic

This term our topic is The World at War.  In the first half term we will look at the First World War, and the second half term we will be focussing on the Second World War.  These will be the influence for our class assembly on Friday 8th November.

Birthdays

Please be reminded that children are not to bring in party bags or sweets.  Instead we ask that a book is donated to our school/class library.
