Year 6 2020 - 2021
In Year 6, as the children have entered the final year of juniors, we expect them to be independent. It is each child’s responsibility to be well organised and prepared for every lesson. We encourage good manners and the ability to care for and respect other people, at all times. We expect them to take care of their own books and equipment, as well as having a regard for the classroom environment.
In the morning, Maths and English are taught by Miss Bilotta and Mr. Solan. The topics covered in each of the classes are exactly the same but the delivery and expectations are adjusted to ensure all children receive appropriate work. In the afternoon, classes will be taught Science, ICT, P.E. and Topic work. The classes will be assisted by Mrs Shaw, Mrs Kinder and Miss Jones.
Our Topic for the Summer term is North America. We will be exploring more about the countries of North America, the Climate and Geographical features such as the Mighty Grand Canyon and the incredible feat of engineering that is the Panama Canal!
Children need to ensure that they have the full kit in school all week. The children need to have two kits: an indoor kit, consisting of a T-shirt, shorts and pumps and an outdoor kit, consisting of a tracksuit and trainers. Full participation is required for PE unless a medical note has been given. Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday.
In year six, children are expected to make use of a wide range of equipment to ensure they make maximum progress in their learning. All resources are provided whilst they are in school, but we feel it would be of great benefit for children to also have access to calculators, protractors, rulers, pencils, handwriting pens, dictionaries and thesauruses at home.
We, as teachers, aim to support your child in every way we can and you can assist us at home by:
- Encouraging their independence (remembering homework and organising equipment);
- Supporting them in their homework tasks, by establishing a routine and talking through their work with them;
- Letting us know of any problems, as soon as they arise.
Your support and encouragement is greatly appreciated and will contribute significantly to your child’s progress through school.
