Welcome to Year 6!
This is a very exciting year for the children as they are slowly preparing for that next step into secondary school. Being in Year 6 (the oldest children in the school), comes with lots of roles and responsibilities such as: Head Boy and Head Girl, looking after the younger pupils, setting a good example and many more.
PE takes place on a Monday, however PE sessions may sometimes change, so please ensure PE kits are brought into school every week or left in school and taken home at the end of every half-term.
New homework is given out on a Wednesday and must be handed in by the following Monday. Year 6 homework consists of weekly spellings, times tables practise and reading at least 3 times per week. We may send home extra projects throughout the year to enhance our learning of topics.
We expect the children to be able to quickly recall times table and division facts for all times tables up to 12 but we will focus on one or two different times tables a week and build up to them all. We are really focussing on that quick recall so practise whenever you can: walking to school, shopping, in the car, anywhere!
Children are given time to practise all of these different skills needed, but in order to be successful, they will benefit from the extra practise at home.
Please note: children will be tested on their weekly spellings and tables every Wednesday morning. We will also check their reading logs to ensure they have been reading at home at least 3 times per week.
Year 6 have already enjoyed a variety of practical and exciting lessons and activities. We will upload videos and pictures of our learning on a regular basis to Twitter so don’t forget to check frequently for updates! Follow CTK_Thornaby
