Year 6

Welcome to Year 6:
Falcon Class & Kestrel Class


Mrs. Dale is teaching Falcon Class this year and Miss Roberts is the class teacher in Kestrel Class.

Welcome

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

Key Times

Homework

Homework will be set every half term. Your child will be asked to work on a number of projects, designed to enrich the learning taking place in school. This approach to homework has been designed to enable you and your child to work together in a creative way and to develop a love of learning. Please see the homework document for Autumn.

PE

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

Key Times

The school gates open at 8:30 in the morning. In KS2, children will be dismissed at the end of the day at 3:25.

 

 

Homework

Read it

Research it

Make it

Read a fiction or non-fiction book that is about World War 2.

Write a review of this book. Include some of the key facts that you have learned about this period of time

Choose an aspect of WW2 that interests you e.g. leaders, countries, lives of children.

Prepare a mini presentation with your findings. The more interesting your discoveries, the better!

Make an artefact associated with WW2 e.g. a ration book, a gas mask carrier, a helmet. Be as creative as possible!

Practise it

Write it

Design it

Practise your multiplication table - especially 7x 8x 9x 11x and 12x.

Experiment with different ways to learn them, e.g. writing them out, songs on YouTube, reciting them aloud or asking someone to test you.

Imagine that you are Winston Churchill, the famous wartime leader. Plan and write a rousing speech to the nation, to convince them to support the War Effort. Remember to be as persuasive and dramatic as possible to catch the audience’s attention!

Design a WW2 outfit such as an air raid warden, a nurse, an ambulance driver or soldier. Think carefully about the materials that would have been available during time period. What colours and designs would have been fashionable? What are the similarities and differences to the fashions of today?  

A note to parents,

Over the course of this half term please work with your child to complete the above. Each of the activities has been designed to support, enhance and enrich an aspect of the curriculum. We are looking forward to seeing the results of your work together.


What are we learning?

In literacy we will begin by reading “Rose Blanche”. The story, by Roberto Innocenti, is a historical fiction book that is partially told from the point of view of Rose, a young German girl living during the beginning of World War II era. In maths, we will begin by focusing on the foundations: place value, and the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). We will then move onto other areas of mathematics in order to ensure the children are prepared for their SATs. Our topic learning will be based around World War II. The children will explore many different elements of history, such as the reason war began and life during the war.

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 20 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. Children also have a mathletics login – 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 Roberts or Mrs Dale, or you can arrange a meeting at the office.

Thanks,

Mrs Dale and Miss Roberts
