WELCOME TO CLASS 6A
Welcome to Class 6A. Here are a few details to help you organise yourselves at the start of a busy term:
Mondays and Fridays - please have full PE Kit in for every lesson.
Ideally, pupils in Year 6 should be reading on a daily basis at home but if this is not possible, the minimum expectation is to read at least 3 times a week. We do have a monitoring system in place in 6A in the form of bookmarks that need to be signed by an adult every time they listen to you read.
New spellings (linked to the National Curriculum) are given out as part of the homework pupils receive on a Friday and a spelling test takes place the following Friday.
Maths and English activities – These are handed out every Friday and are due in the following Thursday. A record is kept of pupils who have completed their homework each week.
Maths homework is linked to the work completed in class that week to reinforce learning.
English homework consists of a spelling list, a grammar worksheet and a comprehension task (plus reading at least 3 times a week).
Please ensure homework books (purple A4) are signed by an adult each week.
Each Monday we will take a trip through the Bible with ‘Walk through the Bible’ delivering our R.E lessons. We will start with the Old Testament and re-tell the Bible stories that follow.
Class 6A are already been working hard. In Maths we are sharpening our arithmetic skills and currently solving problems linked to Place value, Rounding and Negative numbers.
In our English lessons we are enjoying reading 'Storm-breaker' by Anthony Horowitz. We are basing much of our written work, vocabulary development and comprehension skills around this interesting and exciting book.
We are continuing to develop our map work skills and will be learning to locate and identify countries by their shape and identify physical features of landscapes and climates. In Science we have begun learning about ‘Light’ and ‘How we See’ with Mrs Jenkins.
