Expectations

  • Reading – In Year 6, the expectation is that all children read at least five times a week, record this in their Learning Log and bring their Learning Log into class every day.
  • Home Learning tasks - Two pieces of homework are set each week for Y6. These will be in an individual homework book that was given out w/b: 14th September. Year 6 children have the opportunity to personalise their homework book by backing them.
  • Spellings – Practised in short bursts as regularly as possible throughout the week in addition to the statutory spellings and zero tolerance words. These are practised in the homework book.
  • Our Class Charter -

We recognise that everyone has the following rights…

  • To be treated fairly.
  • To learn.
  • To enjoy coming to school.
  • To be included.
  • To be respected.

…so we promise to meet our personalised rules:

  1. Be respectful to all people as well as property (treat people how you would be expected to be treated yourself and respect that individuals may have different thoughts/opinions to your own).
  2. Have a growth mind-set and persevere - ‘can’t do it…yet’.
  3. Try your best all of the time: be an ‘all-rounder’.
  4. Listen, focus and pay attention to the one speaker who is talking (SLANT).
  5. Try to manage distractions and avoid distracting others.
  6. Be kind (facial expressions, words, body language and actions all count).

This half term's class focus text is The Boy at the Back of the Class - an award-winning book by Onjali Q. Rauf. Told through a child's perspective on the refugee crisis, it highlights the importance of friendship and kindness in a world that doesn't always make sense.

Chapters 1-10 of The Boy at the Back of the Class for anyone who has missed them. We will have read up to Chapter 10 by Friday 25th September

As well as reading other books written by Onjali Q. Rauf, why don't you challenge yourself this term to read all of our 'additional must reads'? Recommend your favourite to peers, share your thoughts with me or other members of staff in school and read other books by the same author (local libraries will locate and order the book for you if it isn't in).

Our class tree

Hawthorn
Did you know that the Hawthorn has a wide variety of medicinal uses? The leaves, berries, and flowers can all be used in the production of medicine. One of the main uses of Hawthorn is to treat high blood pressure. It was found to widen blood vessels in the body which, in turn, helps to increase blood flow.
