Welcome to Year 6!

Hello and welcome to our Year 6 class page. I am Miss Booth, your class teacher and we also have Mrs Relton, who is our teaching assistant. This year is your final one at Primary school and will be engaging and full of fun challenges. On our class page, you will be able to keep up to date with our learning from knowledge organisers, newsletters, letters as well as key texts that we will be reading in class. Our class twitter page will also be available to see on this page. 

 

PE

Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. For now on a Wednesday, year 6 will be attending swimming. This means that the children will be required to attend school in their full school uniform and have their swimming kits in their bags with the appropriate equipment. On Friday's, our PE sessions will be led by the Sports coach, which means children will need to come to school in their full Bradley Green PE uniform. Our PE uniform consists of a white top, black shorts or jogging bottoms and trainers, as well as their Bradley Green PE hoodie. Please ensure that hair is tied up and children are not wearing earrings. 

 

Homework

Homework will be handed out to children every Monday and expected back in school the following Monday. Homework will consist of arithmetic and spellings and will be marked together in school. 

Home reading 

It is important that your child is reading frequently at home, to support them in their learning at school. Reading helps to develop a child's understanding, fluency, vocabulary, imagination and knowledge of the world around them. It would be greatly appreciated if you could support us with this at home and use the GoRead app to log any reading that your child has done - independently or with an adult. 

As  healthy school and one that loves books, we ask that parents choose a book for their child's class to present on their birthday which will have a special named book plate inside.  Books can be chosen from our Amazon wishlist, which is also linked to our easy fundraising page, so double win for school! https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/ls/3CJSHOF2Y6HOL?ref_=wl_share

Useful websites 

Some fun, interactive games/websites can be found below to support children with their times tables, number bonds, calculation as well as reading platforms.

Class text and topics

This half-term, our History topic is the Vikings, where we will be exploring who they were, the impact they had and building on Year 5 learning of the Anglo-Saxons. Our English text, The saga of Erik the Viking, links perfectly to this. 

In Science, we are going to be investigating 'light', where we will work scientifically to understand how people see, how light moves, the direction as well as developing our knowledge of shadows. 

The Saga of Erik the Viking: Amazon.co.uk: Jones, Terry, Foreman, Michael:  9781843653141: Books
