Croeso i Flwyddyn 6!
Together, with God, Everyone Achieves More
Croeso i flwyddyn chwech! Welcome to the Year 6 webpage! As well as celebrating some of our brilliant learning with us, I hope that you will use this page to find out information and access additional learning resources so that it becomes a really useful communication and learning tool.
If you would like some activities to challenge yourself over half-term, please see below where you'll find different challenges to complete. Don't forget to read regularly and keep revising your spellings!
A great way to revise is by checking over previous homework and recapping over what you have learnt.
Abacus Active Learn Activities have been set.
Our login is the first 4 letters of your first name and the first 4 letters of your surname (e.g. for Thomas Jones it would be thomjone).
Your passwords are either 'changeme' or whatever you have changed your password to.
The school code is ts6c
Homework - For Friday 27th April
Today (Friday 17th April) the children have been given a procedural maths test and a comprehension / reading English paper. Please could these be returned to school for Friday 27th April. We will then be marking these papers in school.
The National Tests are coming up soon! Please allow the children to have a go on their own first, and if they need help or support, please then help them after. It is a great help to see what the children can do independently first. These papers are nothing to worry about and the children have worked incredibly hard, they should be very proud of themselves.
Class Teacher: Mr Ashworth
Team Davies Maths: Mrs Davies
Classroom support: Miss Ashfield, Mrs Miles and Mrs Tonge
(Mr Ashworth has non-contact time every Thursday afternoon for PPA. On these days the Deputy Headteacher, Miss. Ansell-Jones, will teach in class.)
What are we learning about?
Beth ydym ni'n dysgu?
Our context for learning is:
(THEME) Mods and Rockers - the 60s
Dates this half term
P.E Every Wednesday afternoon in the hall. We are currently studying dance. Barefoot, shorts and a house t-shirt/house colour is required.
Games Every Friday afternoon. We are learning about large ball skills and focusing on Netball and football. Please ensure appropriate outdoor clothing is in school during the winter months i.e. long sleeved tops and tracksuit bottoms.
Reading Everyone should be reading regularly, where possible every day. It is important that we read a variety of texts to build our fluency and understanding. Please comment and sign in your child's 'Reading Together' booklet every time you hear them read. If your child does not have one of these booklets, they should aim to complete a book review in their Review Diaries after each completed book. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the school.
Written Homework: Please continue to check the quality of written tasks completed at home - please ask your child if they have focused on their targets and put 100% effort into the task as they would in class. I am now expecting pupils to be writing extended sentences, using an extended vocabulary range, connectives and various techniques to make their writing more interesting e.g. exciting 'Alan Peat' sentences, simile, metaphor, personification. Writing should be accurately punctuated with full stops, capital letters, question marks, commas to separate clauses and speech marks should be used to denote direct speech. (Reminder - speech should be punctuated before closing speech marks.)
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to me.
