Information for Parents
Hello and welcome to Wildcats. It has been great to welcome your children back to school this week. They have made a fantastic start to year 6! Below is some key information for the autumn term.
- The children are expected to read 5 times per week as part of our weekly reading challenge. The challenge starts on a Friday evening and runs through to the following Thursday evening. The children's reading journals will be collected in on a Friday morning. If the children have read 5 times there are prizes to be won! Please could you write your initials each time they have read and sign the bottom of the journal each week.
- For the first term the children's maths home learning will be set on MyMaths. The home learning will be set on a Friday and should be completed by the following Thursday. Please could they also go onto Times Tables Rock Stars 4 times per week as well. Just short 10 minute blasts.
- The children will also bring home a home learning book with some tasks related to their topic, which is World War 2 (Autumn term). They can do these tasks at their own pace and the books will be collected in at the beginning of December.
- Finally, they will also be set spellings on SpellingFrame on a Monday. Each week they will need to go on SpellingFrame 3 times to practice and play games to help them learn the weeks words. They will then be tested each Monday morning on the previous weeks spellings.
All usernames and passwords will be stuck in the front of their reading journals and home learning books.
World War 2
A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It's 1939 and Britain is at war. The children will learn about why the nations are at war and why child evacuees had to go on long journeys to be safe.
They will read Anne Franks diaries and learn about rationing, the blackout and why people had to 'Make to and mend'. They will delve into a bygone era where loose lips sank ships.
Be prepared to see some fantastic learning as the children's work will be added throughout the term.
Please find below the full scheme of work for the autumn term. There is also a link to the White Rose Maths Home Learning site. On there you will find videos for the learning the children will/have be/been doing in class. These could be used as pre learning activities so the children feel more confident when it is taught in class or as consolidation for when they have been taught it in class.
If you have any other questions please e mail the year 6 home learning address and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
