Welcome to Year 6

We are so pleased to welcome you to our Year 6 team! This year we will have lots of fun and learn plenty along the way! You can look forward to our overarching topics: The Victorians, World War II and our Madeley local study. If you need anything at all, please don’t hesitate to ask any of the adults in our year group.

Weekly Events

Our PE days in Autumn 1 are every Wednesday and Friday – please ensure children have kit for all weather eventualities!

Children are taking part in swimming in the first half term on Wednesdays and Fridays. Children must bring correct kit, this includes: one-piece swimming costumes, towels, flip flops or sliders and knee length trunks. 

Children will also need kit for their enrichment clubs on a Wednesday..

Children will also be taking part in Outdoor Learning with Mr Ratcliffe this term, below are the dates for both classes.

Miss Brown- Friday 15th September, Friday 29th September, Friday 13th October, Friday 27th October.

Mr Johnson’s Class – Friday 9th September, Friday 22nd September, Friday 6th October, Friday 20th October.

Spelling Tests are every Friday and Parent Reading mornings are Wednesdays (8.30 to 8.45).

TT Rockstars and Seesaw

TT Rockstars is an excellent resource for all of our children to practise their multiplication fluency! All children in Year 6 should have quick recall of facts up to 12 x 12.

Seesaw is our online learning platform and is where we will put any information that we need to share. Please sign up to view your child’s journal as you will get a great insight into what they are up to at school and we can reward them for their home reading and any other home learning tasks! Each week home reading and spellings will be assigned.

All links to these apps are located on this page.

Homework

Year 6 is a long year! We don’t set homework with due dates but instead have activities the children can be doing all year round. We expect children to read at home daily and we encourage children, or parents, to record this on Seesaw so we can reward frequent readers.

We have also given out Mathematics and Literacy revision guides this year. We would like children to slowly chip away at these guides year round to aid their learning in the build-up to SATs. We also like to see children using Times Table Rockstars to aid mathematical fluency.

We tell children that year six is a marathon not a sprint! We do not expect children to work for hours after school. We strongly encourage children to relax and enjoy themselves alongside small amounts of daily revision.

Year 6 End of year events 

As the SATs are finished, we have numerous fun events and days out the children will be taking part in, below are some key dates for transition and events.

Home Learning – All Year Groups

If your child needs to learn from home during Autumn Term, please access their year group information page (in Parents News / Classes) for links to teaching videos and learning activities that will help them to make progress during their time at home! Please post their learning onto Seesaw as teachers will be checking journals weekly – they can’t wait to see how you get on!

If you need any help accessing any of the learning, please speak to your child’s class teacher…they are always happy to help!
