Year Six Home Learning
If your child is currently at home in self isolation, please see the English work below that they have missed in class this week. Children have already decided on their David Walliam's World's Worst Children style character. They now need to plan their story using the planning format below. If you do not have access to a printer, just a plan written onto paper using the given headings is fine. Please see my example below to help you.
Happy New Year, Year Six!
Welcome to Spring Term One. This term our topic is The Great Outdoors and our work will centre around our class novel: Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. This is a fantastic book and the children will really enjoy the learning I have in store for them. Please see the homework sheet for this term below.
Spring Term is always exciting in Year Six - the children will work extremely hard but always make super progress at this point in the year,
Welcome to the Year Six class page!
Year Six are called Sicily class and we are situated in the front classroom of the main school building.
Our class teacher is Miss Evans (who is also Upper Key Stage Two Team Leader) and Miss Hewlett is our Learning Support Assistant.
The children have come back ready for the challenge of Year Six and are all working incredibly hard already.
Please can I remind all children and parents that PE kit needs to stay in school for the whole half term.
Also please remember to read every evening at home and record it in your reading diary. An adult then needs to sign it to count towards reading rewards.
Also keep practicing those times tables!
We are looking forward to a wonderful year of learning. Year Six is a challenging year but it is also the most exciting.
If ever you wish to talk to me please do pop in after school.
