Year 6 2020 - 2021
Year 6 Teacher
Happy New Year and welcome to Year 6!
Firstly we would like to say that we hope you and your family are safe and well and that you had a wonderful Christmas break.
All the children appear to have settled back into school well and are continuing to adapt to our routines and rules.
Year 6 is the final year for our children at primary school. It is always a busy year as we prepare for the end of Key Stage SATs and the transition to high school. We will also be working hard this year to cover the Year 5 obectives that were not taught in school, in the usual way.
To find out what we are learning about this term please look at our Curriculum page where you will find the Year 6 Overview.
Year 6 is a year of hard work, but also lots fun. We are trying to include as many of the exciting activities, which take place in Year 6, as safely as possible. Some of these include:
A visit from Roberts Bakery
Exciting science experiments
Day trips and visitors where possible and lots more
This year, homework will be set every Wednesday. The children will be set mymaths.com or spag.com each week alternatively. They are expected to read 3 - 5 times a week and to take part in regular times table practise using Times Table Rock Stars. In addition to this the children will be set a fluency worksheet, where the children will answer a variety of questions around a given number. Each week the questions will stay the same but the number given will change.
Children may also be given extra Maths, English or spelling homework to reinforce their learning as decided by their teacher. This will also be set on a Wednesday and is due back in school the following Wednesday.
Mr Cairns teaches PE on a Wednesday afternoon. The children also have an additional PE lesson on a Monday delivered by their class teacher. Please see the curriculum map for the year's sports. Both classes will take part in Bikeability sessions in the Autumn term.
Mrs Gatiss will also teach Spanish on a Wednesday
We encourage children to bring a water bottle each day, please ensure it is only water.These bottles should be taken home each day to be washed.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email the Year 6 team at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you require an immediate response please contact the office as this address is not checked during teaching hours.
We have had a great first term with your children and are looking forward to the rest of the year together.
