Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to our year group page. Here you'll be able to find links to work that we do in school and photographs of all the fun we've been having.
This term our topic is...
Let's Go Green
This term our theme is ‘Let's go Green.' We will be studying our fragile Earth, how we can help to care for our planet, how we can be more pro-active in prolonging our natural resources and how our planet's future is finely balanced.
We will be broadening our learning on this Big Idea through a range of skills, including map work, sculpture design, web-based research projects, making a music video and reflecting on important issues.
In our english sessions, we will be reading a book called 'The Wild Robot' a story of a robot marooned on an island who must come to terms with his new environment.
This term we will be asking you to continue with TT Rockstars, Maths homework and daily reading at home. In addition, you can choose to complete tasks from the optional home learning grid and share them with us in school!
PE and Games
Our timetabled PE and games days for this term (Autumn 1) are on a Thursday afternoon
As of this academic year, an indoor PE kit has been provided to all pupils by the school. You will be expected to wear this kit for indoor PE (and Games if it is warm enough) and to take it home to be washed during the holidays. It is your responsibility to provide shoes for PE lessons (such as plimsolls).
Later in the Autumn Term and early on in the Spring term, you may wish to additionally provide an outdoor Games kit as we will continue to do outdoor sports in the chillier weather. Details of an appropriate kit are outlined below.
Outdoor PE Kit required
Dark tracksuit bottoms and jumper (no logos)
Trainers or football boots (if already owned)
Shin pads (if already owned)
Long hair tied up
Indoor PE Kit
White polo T-Shirt (provided by school)
Black shorts (provided by school)
Long hair tied up
Please note, it is important that your child has separate indoor PE shoes to help us to look after our hall floor.
Read to Succeed!
As part of our whole school commitment to reading, in Year 5 it is expected that everyone aims to read at least 5 times a week. Every time your reading is recorded in your planner and signed by an adult, your star on the display will move up one space. Everytime you hit a multiple of 10, you will get a reward from your teacher! When ALL class members have achieved a multiple of 10, you will all be rewarded with some extra bonus playtime!
Each week we will have focus times tables to learn with the help of TTRockstars. It is expected that you will log on for a short period of time daily to improve your speed and recall. Don't forget that you will have the chance to become your Class Champion every week and to compete in Friday's assembly for a place on Winners' Row... let's keep Year 5 in with a great chance of winning a Pizza and Pop Party!
Each Year 6 child has their own Google Chromebook to use within school. This is a fantastic resource and is used daily to enrich the curriculum. Children have access to a wide range of apps and tools at their fingertips to support their learning and publish their work.
