Welcome to Year 6 FDS
Click on the links below to find out what the Year 6 children will be learning about this year:
Homework and Reading
Homework is usually an extension or consolidation of work that has been done in class and in Year 6, it will become an increasingly valuable tool for revision and SATs preparation. Maths will be given out on a Tuesday and is due back in on Friday. Literacy will be given out on Friday and is due back in on a Tuesday. Please feel free to comment in your child’s reading record on how your child has found the homework task. In addition, a weekly spelling list and times tables where necessary, will be issued on Fridays, and tested on the following Friday.
It is essential that children bring their reading books to school each day. The Class Teacher/ Mrs Follows will listen to your child read within a guided reading session each week. Guided reading will be a taught session and will use a book of a higher level to provide more challenge. Children will also have the opportunity to change their individual reading books throughout the week. Please support your child by encouraging them to read on a daily basis, for a minimum of 20 minutes 5 times a week, and signing their Reading Record on a weekly basis.
Communication with School
Information will be sent home via e-mail, text and/or letter.
We may also use your child’s Reading Record to communicate personally with you, so please check these regularly.
If you want to speak to your child’s Class Teacher personally or need to discuss a matter at length then please telephone or email the school office to arrange an appointment at a mutually convenient time. Quick messages can be left each morning with the adult on door duty at the school gates at 8.30 onwards.
Keep in touch with us through ClassDojo in the link provided, a great way to see how your child is getting on in year 6.
