Year 6

  • We had a super (although very chilly) residential to Kingswood Colomendy to finish Spring 1. There are photos on the Y6 photos page. PE continues to be on Tuesdays and outdoor PE on Friday afternoons. We do suggest keeping your kit in school all the time though! We are continuing Mrs Blockley’s reading incentive so don’t forget to get your reading record signed at least 5 times a week and there is the Mad Minute Challenge for tables too!

Homework will now be in form of revision books. Your child will be set tasks each week and spellings will be set on a regular basis. As well as this each child has their own Mathletics log in to access set tasks. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Your support at home is invaluable. Please help by practicing times tables. Children must know all their tables and related division facts. They should also use the fact that 3 x 7 = 21 to help them recall that 0.3 x 7 = 2.1 and 30 x 7 = 210.  The children are now familiar with all four formal methods for calculation and we would encourage them to practise these as much as possible.
