Welcome to our Year 6 class pages. Here you will find information about our classroom routines and a few snapshots of the wonderful things we do in Year 6. There are two Year Six classes – 6C and 6HB. Mr Casswell teaches 6C and Mrs Hayes and Mrs Boyes teach 6HB.
Reading in Year Six
We bring our reading books into school every day and our reading journal gets checked once a week. We each have a set day that our reading journal is reviewed so our progress can be checked and books changed as needed. The day is written on the front of my blue reading journal.
Before we change our book, we have to answer the questions at the end of the book in our journal to show we have understood what we have been reading.
An adult should listen to us read regularly through the week at home as part of our homework.
Each week in Year 6 we receive homework tasks to complete. These include:
English Homework is Reading Plus – complete 1 hour or 5 activities per week.
Maths Homework is sent home on a Friday, to be completed in their homework book and returned to school by the following Wednesday.
Spellings – a booklet of spelling rules and common words – given out at the start of the half term containing a page each week to be completed and practised ready for testing on a Friday.
Keep following your Rockstar ambitions and smash your tables with the TTRockstars programme!
PE Days in Year Six
PE days sometimes change throughout the year. We keep parents updated about this using Class Dojo. You can come into school wearing your PE kit that day. For indoor PE we should wear a white t-shirt and white or black shorts, with black pumps. For outdoor PE we can wear a plain, dark tracksuit (black or blue), especially in the winter, and trainers to keep our feet dry!
