Year 6

Hello from the Year 6 staff - Mr Bland, Miss Deo, Mrs Dables, Mrs Buxton - Hart and Mrs Pepperday

100% of you are signed up to our ClassDojo platform which we will use for online learning. Remember that you can see your child's Class Dojo on another device or computer by downloading the app or visiting the dojo website, signing in and entering the code given to you. Dojo is used to share our work in school, homework and our star of the week! 

Working Remotely in Year 6.

Work for all pupils is set on ClassDojo via your class page.  This will be set by the year group teachers each day and will include English, maths and topic as well as times tables and spelling.  There will also be a class story and other activities.  We expect pupils to work for about four hours a day and the work set will reflect this. 

Pupils can complete the work in any order during the day but to support your child you may wish to keep to a similar timetable as we do in school:

Mathematics using White Rose Maths

Times Tables

Year 6 Project!

 

An exciting opportunity! We have created a Topic project for you, which focuses on our work on Earthquakes and Volcanoes.

 

This project is OPTIONAL and is similar to what we would have set as a homework project. This will run through to Easter, so if you would like to have a go at any of these, you have plenty of time!

Take a look at the poster with the activities on, and choose as many or as little as you like.

There are some resources below for this to support you with some of the activities.

 

Have fun!

 

We can’t wait to see them!

 

Mrs. Dables and Miss Deo.

Our topic: Journeys: An Unexpected Journey

During this autumn term, Year 6's topic will be geography based, looking particularly at mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes. 

                                 

 Mathematics for this term will follow our school scheme, beginning with number and place value, addition and subtraction, and properties of shape. You can view our Year 6 long and medium term planning for the year by opening the link. In addition, parents will also receive a maths newsletter at the start of each 3 week unit which details the children's learning, as well as questions to ask and activities and games to play together so that every child is supported with their mathematics at home.

 

 

Reading

We expect all our children to enjoy reading and devlop a reading habit. We ask that all pupils read at home 5 times per week and that this is recorded in their reading record. Recently, we have signed up to Oxford Owl where you can access a range of ebooks. Follow the link below to reach the website:
