Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 Information Evening Thank you for joining us on Tuesday for our 'Welcome to Year 6' evening. If you didn't make it, you can download the powerpoint here. Most of the information covered is on this class page. We will be having a SATs information evening in the new year, which will cover SATs preparation, SATs week and Year 6 assessment.
Thank you for joining us on Wednesday for the Robinwood Meeting. You can download the powerpoint here. If you have any further questions or concerns, or want to pass any additional information on to us, please do not hesitate to speak to Mr Palmer, Miss Turner or Mrs Rogers.
Homework: Spellings and Times Tables and decorating homework books.
Homework is given out on Friday, and is handed in on Wednesday.
Spellings: Each week, your child will receive 10 spellings, either from the statutory key words lists (see below) or based on a spelling rule, taught in school. We encourage the children to practise their spellings using a number of different strategies - there is a copy of our 'Spelling Menu' in their homework books to help at home.
Times Tables: We also focus on a different times table each week, and encourage the children to practise this particular times table at home, as part of their homework. Times Table Rockstars is an excellent website for practising times tables; we use this in school and encourage the children to login at home to practise too - the more practise the better!
Grammar/Maths: In addition, the children will receive a Grammar or Maths activity, related to the objectives covered in class that week.
Useful homework resources:
The Year 6 Writing Toolkit can be printed here.
