Year Six Notice Board
- Please make sure children have a coat with them everyday as it getting much colder
- Children should be wearing winter PE kit
Thank you for the generous Y6 garden donations last term. With the money we have bought seed potatoes, a large blueberry plant and a number of sensory plants too (including lemon verbena, apple mint, chocolate mint and strawberry mint). Y6 pupils will get the chance to plant their seed potatoes at the start of spring and go on a hunt to identify the different sensory plants out in the garden. Can't promise there will be blueberries for everyone this year but you never know!
Thanks again, Mrs Nicholas
We have looked at E-Safety in class this week and would like to remind parents that there is more information on the school website within the Wellbeing section. We know how valuable technology can be but also want to ensure our children are safe when using tech online. Children should be aware of the ways of keeping safe online and know what to do if they are unsure. The school has subscribed to Parent Zone, which offers free information and there are links at the bottom of the website homepage.
Reminders for the moment:
Monday - Homework returned to school
Wednesday & Thursday - PE
Thursday - Homework handed out
Please ensure that PE kits are in school every Monday due to clubs, enrichment and PE commitments. They can then be taken home on a Friday for a freshen up!
Calendar/ Key dates
Tuesday 5th February - Trip to London Zoo
Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.
Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 20 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension. Reading Record books must be brought into school every Monday to be checked. Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to. Also children may borrow books from the Junior Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.
Key words/ Spelling
Please practise reading and writing your spellings. Make sure that you know the meaning of each word. There is a Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check sheet below that you can use to help you. Spellings will be tested through a dictation each week.
