Miss Simmons is teaching Martin Luther King Jr Class this year, Mr Griffin and Ms Marlow are teaching Barack Obama Class and Mr Dunn and Miss Field are the class teachers in Kofi Annan Class.

Welcome

Welcome to year 6! We hope you find the information below useful. This information will help you support your child at home with the organisation of their week and their learning at home.

Key Times

Homework

Due to our catch-up curriculum, which aims to support children in their return to school, we will be setting Music and DT as home learning. Children will access their music curriculum on https://charanga.com/ and their DT on Purple Mash https://www.purplemash.com/sch/kenthouse.

PE

In year 6, the PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit on these days.

Trips

Due to current circumstances we are limiting trips and external visitors but will work to provide enrichment opportunities.

Key Times

For Year 6, the school day will begin at 8.55, and end at 3.40. Children in year 6 are welcome to come in from 8:30 where there will be a soft start activity that they can complete. Please stick to these timings as each year group has their own start and end time to ensure social distancing

 


What are we learning?

Literacy

In Literacy, we will continue to read “Holes”. Holes is an exciting, hilarious and powerful story about crime, punishment, redemption and lots of holes. We will be using the text as a basis for creating poetry and narrative writing.

Maths

In maths, we will be focusing on Multiplication and division, time, fractions and problem solving. We will also be doing catch-up sessions in order to support with areas taught during lockdown.

Science

Plants and cells will be our focus in science, thinking about reproduction in plants, the structure of cells and features of leaves.  

Geography

We will be continuing comparing different areas in geography thinking about London and Fort William in Scotland. We will be focusing on demographics and how an area can change over time.

History

In History, we will continue to learn about the Victorians, thinking particularly about the British Empire and the slave trade.

RE

In RE, we will be moving on from learning about the concept of commitment and exploring how significant it was that Mary was Jesus’s mother.

Computing

We will be starting off with e-safety in computing, creating our own games that focus on different concepts related to e-safety. We will then move on to spreadsheets and learning how to apply their use to real life contexts.

Art

In Art, we will be learning about collages with a focus on using a range of techniques including mixed-media collages involving drawing, painting and photomontage.

French

In French, we will start by re-capping how to talk about colours. We will then move on to learning how we can talk about different countries.

PSHE

In PSHE we will continue to think about families and relationships. We will also have a focus on wellbeing.

PE

In PE we will be doing basketball and dodgeball.

Music

On Charanga, children will be learning about music that makes us happy.

DT

In DT we will learning about how heat transfer and insulation.   

 

How can I help at home?

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 30- minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school. Practicing times tables frequently is vital.

Children have logins for Mathletics, Literacy Planet and Purple Mash– please encourage them to use this frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts.

If you have any questions, please talk to Miss Simmons, Mr Griffin, Ms Marlow, Mr Dunn or Miss Field or you can arrange a meeting via Zoom.

Thanks,

Miss Simmons, Mr Griffin, Ms Marlow, Mr Dunn and Miss Field
