Everybody has settled in well and seems to be enjoying the topics. They are working hard and already making good progress. It was great to see that children have made a good start on learning the spellings and this should really impact their spelling ability by the end of the year.
We will be setting the children 2/3 activities to complete on 'Mathletics' each Friday. We will demonstrate and give them a chance to practise this in school so that they feel confident when using it at home independently.
In line with the rest of the school and in order to really promote reading this year, we are also going to be sending home green reading logs (their password for 'Mathletics' will be stuck inside the front cover). Often by year 6, parents engage less with their children's independent reading than pupils lower down the school; however, we believe that it is really advantageous for pupils' progress if they still get opportunities to read out loud and to engage in discussion about what they are reading. Please support your child by listening to them read and asking them questions about their books. Please use the green logs to record your comments about your child's reading. It would be good if you could do this 3x per week. Our first focus for this half term for home reading is vocabulary. Please help your child by discussing unknown words, predicting unknown words from context and generally discussing the meaning of words at home.
Welcome to Year 6!
In Year 6 the team is Miss Weiner, Mrs Cavill, Mrs Seagar, Mrs Stone and Mrs Richards.
