Year 6

Hello again our lovely Year 6 children!

How are you all doing?

We have really loved seeing so many of your faces from a distance this week, welcoming lots of you back to school and seeing those of you in key worker groups too. It has been so lovely to catch up and talk to you in person and for those of you who are continuing your learning at home, we have enjoyed still receiving your email messages. It is so important to stay in touch with your teachers so that we can support you as much as possible as we move into our final 4 weeks of this year.

This week, those of you in school have been learning about refugees as part of last week’s wider curriculum grid. The week commencing 15th June was refugee week, so we have enjoyed reading ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ together, while also learning about refugees more to understand the range of emotions they experience. We have kept up with our daily maths and grammar learning and did well to refresh our memories of determiners and suffixes.  For National School Sports week, we have also taken part in the Fire 7s virtual competition, sharing the videos created by the teachers and trying this ourselves outside. How many of you at home joined in too? We’d love to see your evidence from this!

What about our online learning? For Reading Plus this week, a big well done to Class 19 as we have definitely seen even more names online this week! Great work from Zac, Matthew, Georgia, Jake P, Jake N, Lewis, Harry, Jessica, Jacob, Ruby M, Lexie, Charlotte, Ruby H and Logan! And for Class 21, a big well done to Danny, Maddox, Thomas, Erin, Hannah and Max! We are so proud of all of you for keeping this up. For our TT Rockstar’s this week, 48% of Class 19 have logged on and 32% of Class 21 – great work! See if those percentages can be even higher next week Year 6!

A huge well done to our individual TTR winners too: Ellie from 19 and Spencer from 21! Well done!

We are super proud of how much progress you are making and how hard you are working for your class too so keep it up!

Our wider curriculum learning this week allows us to start thinking about transition to high school.  Each of the activities will help to prepare you for starting secondary school in September.  If you have any questions about transition, please send these to us to add to a Question Board.  We will answer any questions we receive (or find out the answer if we do not know!) and share these with the year group.  There is no such thing as a silly question – we bet lots of your classmates have the same question!

We know it has been so long now since we were all together at school, but we are so proud of how you are all dealing with this new situation and the learning that so many of you are doing. We really hope that this week we can catch up with more of you who are at home and find out how you are getting on. If you need anything at all, please remember that we are here to support.

Stay safe, be good and keep in touch!

Weekly Learning
The documents below outline the weekly learning for your year group.  Maths and English activities can be completed daily - children should be able to complete these independently.  The wider curriculum document contains curriculum based challenges which can be completed across a two week period.  

Resources to support the wider curriculum learning.  

The Maths and English sections below contain optional learning resources.  These can be used if children would like to develop their learning further.  The maths activities provided by First 4 Maths involve learning about maths in a fun and creative way.  The English documents offer a range of creative writing opportunities.  

Year 6 Maths
It is still important that in year 6 we carry on developing fluency with times tables - don't forget to access Times Tables Rockstars weekly to increase your speed.  White Rose Maths are releasing daily maths lessons during the school closure.  Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.

Year 6 English
Continue to read daily.  This should include: reading a book of your choice; reading a magazine or newspaper article and Reading Plus.  When continuing your English learning at home, remember to include all elements.  A typical lesson should include an aspect of spelling, grammar and writing.  Again, think about how this might look in a typical school day.
