  • PE

    We will be doing PE on a Thursday and Friday. Please ensure that all children have a full PE kit for every lesson: this includes a white T-shirt, navy or black shorts and PE shoes. If your child is unable to participate due to medical reasons, please bring in a signed note explaining why.

    During the summer months, trainers are allowed when PE takes place outside. For the safety of all pupils, jewellery must be removed- stud earrings (that cannot be removed) must be covered with tape.

    Reading books will be sent home daily and children are expected to read at least three times a week for a minimum of ten minutes. PLEASE encourage your child record their reading and bring their book to school each day.

    Children are encouraged to learn the times tables that they are working on each week. They will be tested on these on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings and questions will include both multiplication questions (4 X 8=32 ) and corresponding division facts (32 divided by 8 =4 ). All children have access to the Rock Star Times Table website which can be used to help them learn their tables; their username and password can be found in the front of their home reading record.

    Spellings will be sent home on a Monday and children will be tested on these on the following Monday. It is essential that time is set aside for them to learn these spellings over the course of the week.Children have all been given a Spelling Shed log in where they will be able to access and practise their spelling for the week.

  • Reading

    In year 6, we encourage children to read as much as possible and to challenge themselves with a range of different novels. Everyday we set aside time for the children to listen to a class novel being read to them but also give children the opportunity to read independently a book of their choice. 

    Why is reading so important?

    • Reading improves concentration – Children have to sit still and quietly so they can focus on the story when they’re reading. Reading also relaxes the body and calms the mind whilst also exercising the connections in the brain.
    • Reading teaches children about the world around them – Through reading, they learn about people, places and events outside their own experience.
    • Reading improves a child’s vocabulary, leads to more highly-developed language skills and improves the child’s ability to write well.
    • Children learn new words as they read as well as seeing how to structure sentences and how to use language effectively.
    • Reading develops a child’s imagination – When we read we translate the descriptions of people, places and things into pictures.
    • Reading helps children develop empathy – When we’re engaged in a story, we imagine how the characters are feeling and use our own experiences to imagine how we would feel in the same situation.

    Online safety advice

    Early use of digital technology has been shown to improve language skills and promote children’s social development and creativity.

    But it’s not without risks for young children, who may come across inappropriate content or begin to copy what older children do online. See our advice to understand what you can do to give young children the best experience of going online.
