Welcome to Miss Miller's Year 6 class
Summer term is here!
What a busy first half term we have had! Year 6 have shown great determination in the lead up to SATs and made us all proud during the week itself, showing positivity and resilience by the bucket load.
We have now finished our Brazil topic (though we are still frantically screen printing T-shirts this week!) and will begin a new topic - 'Stone Age to Iron Age' after half term.
The children in Year 6 have P.E. (tag rugby, rounders, tennis and athletics this term) on both Monday and Wednesday afternoons and they will need to remember their kit on these days. (During the summer term, it is useful to have kit in every day for impromptu sessions!) I should remind everybody; P.E. kit includes white or red plain T-shirts (not the polo shirt they are wearing all day), black or blue shorts and either trainers or plimsolls. No jewellery should be worn for safety reasons. P.E. is part of the curriculum and it is important for children to have their P.E. kit on the appropriate day.
Each week, your child will be given some homework which will include reading each evening, learning the multiplication tables, spellings and a literacy or maths activity. Homework will be given out on Monday and returned on Thursday. I would appreciate it if you could support your child in the planning of when he/she should spend time completing homework as it is best to do frequent short sessions rather than all of it in one evening.
In year 6 we encourage the children to be independent and responsible for their homework and handing it in on time. All of the children have a yellow homework diary in which they should record the book they are currently reading and anything else they need to remember. Feel free to use this diary as a channel of communication between home and school should you wish to.
I'm sure our last half term together will be fun-filled with lots of activities to take part in.
Thank you for a great year so far.
