Learning Together

Class 5

Welcome to Class 5

Class 5 is made up of 21 year 6 pupils and are taught by our new Deputy Head Teacher Mr Blackburn. Mrs Hounslow also helps us out in class along with Mrs Oddie.

 

We have a lot of responsibility in Year 6 which include:

  • being a Buddy to younger children in school,
  • leading School Council and the Green Team,
  • being Faith and Playground Leaders
  • managing the House Point system across school.
  • Writing the school prospectus

As well as all the above, we also do some fabulous learning.

Please see our learning overview for this term for more information. 

Welcome to Year 6

Well, we have had a brilliant first three days in Year 6! It has been great to get to know everyone this week and we are starting to get used to all the new routines in school, including washing our hands on many, many occasions! The children are already setting a great example to the rest of the school and we look forward to welcoming our new reception children on Monday. I know all the year 6 children are looking forward to meeting their buddies, even if they have to do it from a social distance!

There is a lot of fun and hard work to be had over the coming year. Make sure you keep coming back to check out some of the things we have been doing. 

Have a good weekend everyone.

Mr Blackburn

Homework:

Autumn Term 2020

Children will receive their own personalised spellings every week on a Friday. These will help them build up a bank of spellings of words from Year 3 to Year 6. They can practise writing the words and then apply them to a sentence.

We are going to use Google Classroom to set English and maths homework on a weekly basis. We are awaiting updates to our school site so this will begin as soon as possible.

Children will have the opportunity to complete a range of homework based on topics that we are also covering. These will be added to Google Classroom and can be completed throughout the half term.

Grammar Glossary

A good site for spelling revision is: spelling frame.co.uk

On this you can play games, hear the words and learn or revise the spelling patterns learnt throughout KS2.

REVISION IDEAS FOR Y6

 

As we move throughout Year 6, children will be encouraged encouraged to undertake a regular programme of revision alongside their usual weekly homework tasks.  

 

To help them along the way we have found some sites which they may find useful.  Many of these are interactive and use brief tutorials or engage the children to use their knowledge through the playing of games.  These should be used alongside Study Guides to help with their practise and revision. More details will be given on these, as we personalise learning for the children, as we move throughout the year.

Maths and English Practice- take a look at some of the sites mentioned below to help with your preparation for the KS2 SATs in May: 

 

IXL have separate pages of skills linked to individual Year groups. The Y6 page has links to practise both English and Maths skills. Pages are then split into skills with a practise question for the children to think about.

BBC Education has produced a whole selection of materials for KS2. Follow the KS2 link and then select either Maths or English. Each area usually has an information section for reading, plus an activity and then quiz which is then marked online. Some aspects require a subscription.
