Autumn Term 2021
Welcome to our Year 6 class page. We are really looking forward to working with our new classes and are excited for the upcomimg year ahead. For our blended home learning,please find below links, worksheets and activities for you to engage with and complete, where possible if you are having to learn from home as opposed to school. Some of the tasks directly relate to work that we have already started in school, others are consolidation activities
For this term, our PE days will be on a Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure that children have appropriate PE kit for the weather as we will be teaching indoors and outdoors. Can you ensure that children with their ears pierced have a plaster to cover their ears with for PE or are able to take their own earings out?
Homework will be sent home on a Monday. We would like it to be returned into school by the following Monday so that it can be checked and marked ready for the new set of work to be put in folders. From 13th September onwards, homework will include: reading comprehension, spelling, grammar and maths. Children have been encouraged to approach the teaching and support staff with any queries or concerns they have regarding the homework set.We would be extremely grateful for your support to ensure that homework is completed.
This term our main topic focus is World War 2. For further curriculum information please see our Yr6 curriculum map in the 'About Us' section of the school website under the curriculum tab.
