Welcome to the Year 6 class page!
In Year 6, we ensure that we embrace the school values by being great models for the rest of the school:
Year 6 will be a busy, exciting and memorable year. The most important message for the children this year is to make the most of every opportunity that comes their way!
As always, thank you for your ongoing support and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to one of us.
Meet the Team
Year 6 are supported in class by:
Mrs L. Territt (Class Teacher)
Mrs M. Davis (Teaching Assistant)
Miss Moore and Miss Fazey (Wednesday pm)
P.E days this term will be Wednesday and Friday.
Our topics this term will be The Victorians in History and Earth and Space in Science. Children will not only develop their curiosity and knowledge in both of these fascinating subjects, but also their enquiry skills.
Spelling home learning will be set in Edshed on Monday with words to be learned and tested the following Monday and accompanying activities.
Maths tasks will also be set in Edshed on Monday and should be completed by the following Monday.
This term we have introduced a reading record. This is a record of your child's reading and a reflection of what they have read. You child should aim to read a minimum of 4 times per week and include an entry in their record. Ideas for what they can record have been shared and placed in the front of their record. Although children are independently reading by Year 6, it is still important to spend some time enjoying a book together and discussing the plot, themes, vocabulary and characters. Reading records will be collected in each Friday to see how your child has reflected on their reading.
How to help your child at home
Please encourage your child to read a range of different genres. The more they read, the better their vocabulary becomes, which also improves their independent writing. Children should be able to spell all words from the Year 5/6 spelling list (see above) by the end of the year, these will be set as part of their home learning each week. Please help them to learn as many of these words as possible.
The most helpful thing you can do this year is encourage your child to show independence, responsibility and to try their best! Help them make the most of their final year at Winkfield St Mary's.
