Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome to the Year 6. Our teachers this year are Mrs Marchant and Miss James.
The school day:
Our school day begins at 8:25am. We usually spend the first section of the day carrying out corrections and responding to feedback on our previous day's work in order for us to improve and progress. This is followed by our daily spelling lesson to consolidate the words we are learning that week. We use the 'Read Write Inc' spelling scheme. Between 9:00 and 11:00 we have our main English and Maths lessons.
Our lunch is at 12:40pm - 1:25pm and our day ends at 3pm. In our afternoon sessions we do wider curriculum lessons, including history, geography, computing, art, drama and French.
Our current learning:
Our Summer term topic is Africa. As part of this, we are studying Journey to Jo'Burg by Beverley Naidoo. We are also studying the ancient civilizatation of Benin. Your child will have received a Knowledge Organiser with all the key facts and information required to have a solid background knowledge of this topic. This will be tested in our Weekly Quiz.
In science this half term we are studying Evolution and Adpatation and Electricity.
In PE we have two different mixed-class groups. One group will be going swimming on a Wednesday afternoon.
Weekly homework has stopped since SATS. However, we will also have to learn a section of our current Knowledge Organiser weekly.
Reading Organisers are checked on a Friday morning. We should be reading at least three times a week at home. Our reading homework counts as one of our reads.
