Year 6 2019 - 2020
I hope you have had a wonderful, restful break and are excited about the year ahead!
Below, there is some important information about this year that I hope you will find useful. If you should have any further questions about the year ahead, I would be more than happy to discuss them at the start or end of the day.
This year, Miss Girven will be our teaching assistant and Mr Allen will teach math alongside Miss Smith. The year 6 team are committed to working hard to ensure every individual is encouraged to achieve their full potential.
Homework is handed out on a Friday and collected back in on a Tuesday. All children will receive a piece of reading, grammar and maths homework each week. All homework should be completed in the correct book using a sharp pencil in maths and pen in english.
Spelling homework will also be handed out on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Each week, we will focus on a different spelling rule and closely monitor children's progress throughout the year. Children will also be learning a separate set of compulsory spellings which I have attached for your reference. If you could encourage your child to learn these Year 5/6 spellings at home, it would greatly benefit their progress in school.
Children will be provided with a home reading book where they will be encouraged to read as much as possible at home. Reading is vitally important in this year group and any opportunity to encourage your child to read at home would be greatly appreciated. I ask parents to listen to their children read at home and ask questions to check their understanding. Children will be provided with the opportunity to choose their next reading book, should they have finished theirs, daily.
This term, children will have gymnastics on a Tuesday afternoon and a P.E session with a coach on Thursday afternoon. Please can children ensure that they have their full P.E kit in school from Monday to Friday in case any timetable changes should occur.
Our Topic this term is "Hyde's Hair-Raising History"; in which, we will commence on a local History study and delve in to the curious past of our local area. In particular, the children will explore a range of sources to find ouut about Hyde in the Victorian Period and during WW2. As part of this exploration, children will visit Quarry Bank Mill on 11th October.
I look forward to working to working alongside you to ensure that your child reaches their full potential in their final year at St Paul's!
