Learning in Year 6
At our school, we learn many subjects under one umbrella; we call this ‘Immersive Learning’ as the children are fully immersed in a particular topic or theme for a term and become experts in that area of the curriculum. Each term we will add the medium term overview for the new topic which can be found below. These topics will form the majority of our lessons, combining literacy, science, art, DT, history and geography. It really helps your child build their knowledge and understanding if you can support their learning at home by, for example, taking them to a museum or finding a non-fiction book in the library linked to each term’s topic.
At present we would ask that on the day of your child’s scheduled PE sessions they attend school in their PE kit. For the 15 minute mile, uniform may be worn along with trainers.
We will be continuing our push on reading this academic year and, as usual, we would appreciate it if your child would bring an appropriate reading book to school each day. This saves time and, along with using our school reading scheme, allows us to assess strengths and weaknesses as well as allowing the children to have a set book to read. Please help us by regularly listening to your child read. This will certainly help them to progress and will allow you to see if they are fully understanding what they are reading. It’s also a good excuse to spend quality time being read to.
Homework & Spellings
Your homework and spellings for this term can be found on Google Classroom. Children each have their own login and should be able to complete and hand in their work online, following the instructions set by the teacher. If you have any trouble accessing the work online, please speak to the class teacher.
