Times Tables and Reading


Dear parents,


It is enormously beneficial to your child's progress if you are encouraging them to read at home as well as take some time to get tables practise on the Rock Stars platform.


Reading is the bedrock of nearly everything we do in school and reading aloud has proven benefits for those children who are able to find the time to do so. It shouldn't be too onerous, 20 minutes or so over the week would be sufficient and it really can make a huge difference. 


The same can be said for rapid recall of times tables knowledge; the simple fact of the matter is if children don't have to think about a step in a problem they are solving they free up working memory which allows them to more easily access to the rest of a calculation. Children who are not fluent with their tables are inevitably going to have to do more thinking to solve a calculation and therefore are more likely to make a mistake. 


Time taken at home now will make a difference - both this year and those that follow. 


Thank you for your support,


The Year 6 Team

Homelearning apology


For reasons beyond my understanding the homework instructions for SPaG this week read  'Page 31 + 31'. It was meant to, and now does, read page 31 and 32. Apologies for any inconvenience.

Times Tables Rock Stars


Please ensure the children are getting at least 20 minutes practise on the Rock Stars platform over the course of each week. Rapid recall and fluency in times tables enables children to work more confidently when solving mathematical problems and will be of increasing use as the Y6 curriculum develops. 


The children came home earlier in the week with their logins, if they haven't got this please let us know and we will re-issue these. 


Kind regards,


The Year 6 Team

Parent Meeting Presentation

Homelearning - To be handed in 20/9/19

Welcome to Y6!


So here it is, the final year of primary school: my, my hasn't the time gone by quickly! At this stage we want to say hello, let you know that we're here should you want to catch up (after school is best but we appreciate that's not always possible) and to draw your attention to why it is worthwhile dropping in on us here on our class pages frequently to ensure you're up to speed with all that is going on. 


We will use these pages to keep you abreast of what's going on across the year, in each of the classes as well as setting homelearning and giving you access to important information and documentation. Below this message you'll notice a number of resources already there fore you: all you need to do is click on them and they will surrender their informative goodness. If you have any problems in doing so please send a message in with your child and we can provide you hard copies. 


A couple of dates for the dairy worth noting at this juncture are: 


16/9 - Y6 Curriculum Meeting @ 3:30pm

20/9 - Jeans for Genes Day

1/10 - Y6 trip to Milestones Museum


That's all for now, thanks for reading,
