Reading Books

Children in year 6 are expected to read at home each day, either to a family member or independently.  Please ensure reading records are brought to school daily and signed when your child has read so it can be included in their termly reading challenge.   We can then also write in them when they read with adults in school.

 

Each Year 6 pupil is aiming to have read 12 books by the end of each term. If completed the pupils will receive an exciting reward. If a pupil reads 12 books in each of the three academic terms they will receive a final reward at the end of the year.

6S are reading lots in school, please continue to read with them at home to help them reach their target!

 

P.E Days

Year 6 will have weekly P.E. although sometimes the day it is on may change.  Therefore please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school every day. Your child will need a white T-shirt, black shorts and suitable footwear (trainers/plimsolls).  In the winter months your child can wear black tracksuit bottoms and a jumper.  Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.

Class Blog ~ Thursday 16th September 2021

 

English

This week we have been recapping how to use inverted commas. We then planned and wrote our own narratives with dialogue about when Lennie in the ‘Cardboard Cowboy’ met Bruce.

 

Maths

In maths this week we have been using number lines to order negative numbers, calculate intervals across zero and solve problems involving negative numbers such as temperature difference or money problems.

 

History

We have been continuing with our topic ‘Medicine Through Time’. This week we created some leaflets outlining what the Great Plague was, what happened to people who caught it, what people in the past thought caused it and how they tried to prevent it.
