In year 6, we post homework every Friday on Google classroom to be handed in before the following Friday.
We expect children to read with an adult at home for 10mins, 5 times a week and alone as much as possible. This will help children maintain and improve their fluency, expression and comprehension. In school we mainly read in groups with a teacher once a week, and focus more on understanding the text, inference, noticing patterns and commenting on the author’s intentions.
Children are responsible for changing their own reading book when needed, a teacher or teaching assistant will advise when your child is ready to move a book band and will monitor children’s targets.
Our PE day is Tuesday. Please ensure that PE kit (t-shirt, shorts, pumps/trainers) is in school and labelled with your child’s name. Please also remove any earrings and ensure children with long hair have a bobble to tie their hair back. PE will always be outside except in exceptionally bad weather, so a tracksuit and change of outside shoes is required.
During year 6 we endeavour to prepare all our children for their transition to secondary school to ensure this is as smooth as possible. We work very closely with our feeder secondary school – Ecclesfield Secondary – and our children have many opportunities to visit the school to meet staff and become familiar with the building. We encourage all our children to attend open days at our local secondary schools and these will be authorised as educational visits by school.
