Greenmeadow Primary School

Welcome to Year 6! 

 Your teacher for this year is Mrs Vaughan.

Your teaching assistant is Mrs Gray.

This year, we will be exploring the year 6 curriculum through a range of different lessons. We will encourage the children to express their opinions whilst respecting the opinions of others and provide them with opportunities to develop their learning through working in small groups, pairs or as individuals. Also, we will further develop communication skills through other mediums, including role play. 

Below is this week’s learning sheet followed by all the resources required.

This term we have set out the work as daily tasks. By doing this we are encouraging children to establish routines in readiness for returning to school in the future. The new learning sheet will ensure that all children, whether at home or school, have access to the same learning as well as those who will be attending school will be accessing work they have not yet completed at home. If you have any questions, please email me using the year 6 class email.

Home Learning for Week 5

There are comprehension texts and EBOOKS, complete with resources on the English page which can be found by clicking on the curriculum link or click here for year 6.

If you would like any additional maths work, The White Rose Maths Team has prepared a maths lesson for each day of the week. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully. You can find these videos at https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/

Class messages


Coats
Please ensure that your child always comes into school with a coat, especially with the weather getting colder.

Water bottles
Please provide your child with a water bottle every day. This is as well as a drink in their lunch box if they are having a packed lunch.

PE
We have PE twice during the school week - on Monday and Wednesday. All children must have their PE kit in school every day to ensure that they can participate. We will continue to do PE outside once a week so please provide your child with appropriate clothing eg: tracksuit and trainers.
Girls need to have earrings covered and hair tied back. Please also ensure that children have their name in each part of their kit! If your child is unable to take part in PE due to illness or injury, please notify me in writing including the reason for non-participation.
Please have your child's name in all of their clothes and belongings!

 

Reading
Children are expected to read five times a week and independently record it on their reading record sheet, completing the task set for that day. Parents are then asked to sign the form for each day the child has read. Once a book has been completed, the children are asked to complete a book review and hand this in to me before changing their book. 

 

Homework 

English is set on Tuesday and due in on the following Monday. This homework will be supporting their learning of punctuation and grammar. 


There are two sets of Maths homework; arithmetic and reasoning. Mathematics homework goes home on Friday and is due on the follwing Thursday. 

Spellings
The children will have 15 spellings from the spelling pattern given out plus the 5 high frequency words taken from the national curriculum year 5/6 list. Spellings are given out on Tuesday and tested on the following Tuesday. The new spellings will be stuck in the front of their yellow books and the children will be tested in the back of these books. 

Handwriting
Below is an example of the cursive script we use in school, If you would like to practice at home please feel free.

 

If there are any questions, please come and see me or make an appointment for a time after school.

Thank you for your continued support!
