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!
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.
Please read our weekly class blogs below.
Year 6 have had an excellent week.
In English, we have produced persuasive letters – the children are now making excellent strides in their writing; it is a pleasure to see.
We have been converting decimals to fractions this week in Maths. Next week, we will be converting decimals to percentages.
We have created an incredible two-page spread in Geography on the Westman Islands (Iceland) – they look beautiful! They’ve included an array of facts on Iceland from the volcanoes, native species to the population of the islands.
On Friday, we’ve had a very special guest ‘The Clever Sausage Man’. Our day surrounding ‘World Cup Writers’ consisted of various activities for the children. They have produced their own FIFA cards on imaginary players.
Enjoy the football game this evening!
See you Monday!
