Y6 - Topaz Class
WELCOME TO TOPAZ CLASS!
Although year 6 can have many things that might make us feel worried, there are also many things to look forward to. I am delighted to have this group of children again this year and will be there to do talk about any worries and share the fun!
Please click on the Knowledge Organiser below to find out what we are learning this term.
I am always at the classroom door at the end of the day and you can message me using classdojo if there is anything you would like to discuss. I am looking forward to an exciting and busy year with Topaz class
PS - Here are a few reminders about school and home learning in year 6 that you might find helpful....
On Tuesdays, the class will go swimming. They need to bring a one piece swimsuit or suitable swimming shorts in a bag with a towel. Long hair needs to be tied back and no jewellery to be worn.
On Fridays, we have PE in school. They should turn up wearing the correct PE kit : plain white T-shirt and black or navy joggers, shorts or leggings. No jeans or patterned T shirts or leggings please.
Reading to an adult or older sibling is still really important in year 6, especially the discussions around what they have read. Children need to read aloud to an adult daily and the adult should sign their reading record to show this.
Children should know all their multiplication facts up to 12 x 12 by year 6 but daily practise is important so they don't forget them. Knowing these table facts off by heart makes a big difference to how quickly children can progress in the rest of their maths.
All pupils have logins for Times Table Rockstars which were sent home in week one. Please play regularly! Your teacher can log in and see your high scores!
Children are sent home spellings to learn each week and will be tested on Friday. They need to spend some time learning these at home. A list of suggested activities was sent out in week one which will help.
To help them prepare for secondary school, year 6 are given two homework tasks each week; one for maths and one for English. This will be based on work we have been doing in class. This is given out on Thursday and is due back on Monday. This gives children time if they need to ask me anything about the work.
Class news, information and celebrations are shared regularly and on Class Dojo. Please make sure you are signed up.
