Oak - Year 6
IMPORTANT UPDATES (17/03/2021):
a) A simplified version of the key words for term 5's RE, Science and History topics can be found in the key words folder below for pre-learning. This is particularly directed at Mrs Kilroe's group.
b) I have left a number of the Fluent in 5 exercises in the folder below so that the children can use them to practice in the period leading up to the SATs.
c) The Term 5 homework in the folder below. Please read carefully as the homework for this term is a little different due to the SATs tests we are conducting.
d) Don't forget to let Mrs Kilroe know what reading has taken place every week using Tapestry. The deadline is Friday 8am. Many thanks.
What are the topics for Term 4?
The main topic of term 4 is "Communication over time" from cave paintings to Zoom calls. Meanwhile in science we will be learning about the related topic of electricity. Exciting practical tasks ahead include designing electric games, cave painting, designing medieval books, healthy cooking and more! Term 4 also sees the annual Book and Science Days.
What is the weekly homework?
Every week for homework, the Year 6 children need to practise their times tables using either “Times Tables Rock Stars” or “Hit the Button” (free on the internet) and learn their spellings for the week. They also should read their home reading book every night. This reading can sometimes be independent (though reading out loud to an adult is best); however the reading record should be signed by an adult every night. In addition, there is a creative, fun, topic related set of termly homework tasks, a copy of which can be found in the folders above.
When is PE?
PE is every Wednesday (Rugby) and the PE kit/hoodie should be worn to school. The children should bring a spare pair of shoes as the field is likely to be muddy; they will be going outside rain or shine!
Please use the class email address to send us your children's homework (if it is a document) and for any other queries.
We are really looking forward to the upcoming term!
Mr Clarke-Serret and Mrs Kilroe
