OUR LEARNING JOURNEY THIS YEAR
year 6 Curriculum
Please download our termly curriculum documents here for more information about what we will are learning and to see examples of our work.
Children are encouraged to come to school in trainers so that they are prepared for daily active lessons. We will be participating in active learning as much as possible during the Autumn Term. Activities will include regular wake-up-shake-up sessions, daily mile activity and Maths and English lessons incorporating physical activity.
Homework will be set on a Friday to be handed in the following Wednesday. Homework will usually consist of Maths and English. It is extremely important that children complete their homework on time. We encourage independence with homework tasks, but if your child finds a particular task really challenging and you have had to give a lot of support, please write a comment on the sheet/page.
We hear the children read as often as possible in school. Please continue to help with reading at home as even though the children are now free readers they still need to read as often as possible. It is important that the children not only read the words, but understand the meaning of the words.
We will be taking part in a forest school session every Tuesday afternoon through out the Autumn Term. Children are asked to come to school in their forest school kit on this day and also bring their trainers. Suitable clothing and footwear should be provided consisting of a long sleeved top, full length bottoms and wellies or old shoes. Please be mindful that these clothes may get very dirty and even scratched in this environment. Learning will be fun and occasionally messy!
Class Dojo is a new way for teachers to encourage students and contact parents about their child's progress in class. It can be used online or downloaded as an app on iOS and Android devices. Please ask if you require a copy of your log in.
