Spring Term letter
Dear Parents and Carers,
Happy New Year to all.
I hope Year 6 had a restful time over the Christmas holiday. We now have a very important term's work ahead of us.
A new journal contains updated timetable information. Pupils still need to focus on becoming more independent and keep taking responsibility for organising themselves. I am seeing signs of progress in the class - well done! Please ensure that your child brings their journal to and from school every day and please give reminders about homework. It is always helpful if parents/carers can take some time to look at the homework set. If you feel the need to support your child, please annotate the work or allow them to give a corrected answer, but not rub out their original work. We can then see where extra support is needed.
PE kit is needed in school on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Homework arrangements stay in place unless otherwise noted in journals:
Grammar work - due in each Monday.
Mathematics - due in each Wednesday.
Spellings are usually tested each Wednesday.
Regular reading to develop reading stamina: 20-30 minutes per day (please encourage your child to record in the journal).
Reading to and adult and discussing the texts two or three times per week would be highly beneficial. (Please record/comment on reading in the journal - thank you.)
For full details of the homework in Year 6 please click here.
We have high expectations of behaviour, as this is essential if all pupils are to achieve their full potential and fully enjoy their learning at school. Rewards such as house points, raffle tickets and class awards continue.
This term our topic is "Flight" and relates to World War II, specifically the Battle of Britain and events leading up to and following on from that period. We shall also be looking at the impact of Total War on daily life in Britain, as well as the role of RAF Cosford and its impact on the village of Albrighton.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me. Many thanks for your continued support.
