Hello!

 

Welcome to our Year 6 class page.  My name is Mrs Greenough and I'm the year 6 class teacher.  This page has been set up to help provide some information for you with regards to what happens in our year 6 class, our expectations and some helpful and handy links to support further learning.  Should you need to contact me, please feel free to send me an email.

Autumn Term 2 - Information

 

Topic

Our topic for this term is all about the industrial revolution and our investigative title is: 'How did industrialization change life in Britain?'.  This is a history based topic so we will be learning about the past of our country and our local area.  We will also be holding a Victorian Day where the children will be able to experience what life was like for a Victorian school child.  Please see the topic web (below) for further information about our learning this term.  

 

PE

PE will be on Monday afternoons (with Mr Jones) and Wednesday afternoons (with Mrs Greenough).  Please ensure that the children come into school on these days wearing their school PE kit : shorts or tracksuit bottoms (depending on the weather), trainers, school jumper or fleece.  

 

Homework

Homework will be set weekly on a Friday and is expected to be handed into school the following Friday.  This gives the children a week to ensure it is completed.  I will be available at lunchtimes should anyone need any further help with what has been set.  I will only set homework as a recap of learning so the children will have had lessons in school that relate to the home work set.  As well as the weekly work set (in the CGP books provided), children are also expected to participate in daily reading, spelling and maths practice as outlined below.

 

Maths - times table rock stars can be used to help with number fluency as well as a number of online maths games that you can find here. 

 

Reading - The children have each been set up with access to an account through readtheory.org which provides short quizes to assess their comprehension skills. The children are also expected to engage with daily reading at home, books from school can be taken home for reading pleasure.

 

Spelling - Weekly spellings will link to a website called spellingframe.co.uk where the children can access online tests to assist them with their learning.
