WELCOME TO YEAR 6
with Miss Thomas, Mrs Lewis and Mrs Park
Every Friday, children will be allocated the following list of homework. Homework is due in the following Friday. Those children who cannot access internet at home, will be provided time during school to complete their homework. Every child who completes the homework stated below will receive a 30 minute reward time on a Friday afternoon.
Homework comprises of the following:
Daily reading of at least 10 minutes is encouraged to increase children's reading progress. Home reading is monitored on a regular basis to ensure children are reading interesting books with an appropriate level of challenge. Children have been provided with Reading Records where they are expected to write a couple of sentences to describe what they have read each time they read. This needs to be completed twice a week to enable them to receive the Homework Reward Time.
It is important that all children are practising their multiplications regularly. We complete a multiplications challenge every Friday where the children are given 10 minutes to complete as many sums as they can!! Try to practise your times tables as often as you can and regularly log into Times Table Rock Stars.
Children can log in to Mathletics at home. It is tailored to each individual child and the level that they are currently working at. We aim to consolidate and extend their understanding of the concepts we have been studying in class by regular practise on Mathletics.
P.E day this half term is - THURSDAY!
It is essential that all children wear a P.E kit on the day they are completing a P.E lesson.
Our school P.E kit consists of:
black shorts, black pumps and a t-shirt in their house colour.
TIMES TABLES ROCK STARS!!
Each week, the children are entered into a Boys vs Girls competition in Year 6! The competition opens at 4pm on a Friday and closes the following Friday at 9am. The winning team (boys or girls) will win themselves an extra 15 minutes play time as long as they have participated towards the winning total. Each child must have at least 500 points to win the extra play time! The child with the most points will win a certificate and go onto the Times Table Rock Stars wall of fame!
