Dear Parents, Carers and Pupils,
Due to Covid19, we have to sadly announce the cancellation of CREED 2020. If you have paid in full or any down payments, can you please get in touch and let us know using the email provided below so that your money can be refunded.
Please send emails to: firstname.lastname@example.org and in the subject line put 'Creed Refund'
Please add the following: The pupil's full name and which class they are in.
On this web page, you will find work that your child can do every day. If you do not have access to a printer, please use the sheets on a tablet/computer/phone so your child can use the workbook we have provided them with, or paper that you have at home.
As well as the work provided, please ensure that your child is reading every day. This can be a book from home and please continue to write in their reading records so they can still be working towards earning their rewards.
You may find that we have supplied worksheets that cater for a range of abilities, in these cases, please choose the one that you think best suits your child.
We have also sent your child home with the log in information for Times Table Rockstars, please continue to use this every day. Should your child forget their login - please contact the team.
If you have any further questions, or would like some more work for your child, please use the following email address; email@example.com or simply fill in the contact form, located below.
All three teachers will have access to this email accounts and promote open communication with all our parents and carers and shall respond accordingly.
There is an expectation that children should be completing this work and you will find that this will help them stay occupied throughout the day and therefore help to keep them calmer!
Stay safe and well and we look forward to seeing you all as soon as possible.
The Year 6 Team.
Should you have any queries, please use the form below, or email address firstname.lastname@example.org, to communicate with Year 6 teachers. Please specify child's name and their class within the contact form and any corresponding email address that the teaching team can communicate with yourself. Best wishes, Year 6.
Year 6 General Information
Daily reading is expected from each pupil and will be checked each morning so that new books can be issued. We hope to promote a love of reading and help the children to become more confident readers. We run the Buster Book Club system within the school and the children have the chance to earn rewards for the more times that they read.
Homework books have been issued to each child and homework will be stuck in and given out each Friday. The homework will consist of spellings to learn and one other piece of either maths, English or topic.
Year 6 children are expected to have a PE kit in school at all times. However, our PE days are Monday and Tuesday. PE is part of the curriculum and all children will be expected to participate to extend their skills and enjoyment.
This week we have been learning about ratio.
We have explored scale and ration, we had to investigate what the ratio was for a matchbox toy car compared to a real car.
