Autumn Term 2019

This term, we are really looking forward to getting to know each other and finding out all the things we are good at. In the Autumn term, the children in Year 6 will be busy establishing themselves as role models for the rest of the school to look up to and follow: we will be electing House Captains, giving out Play Leader and Prefect roles and demonstrating high standards of conduct around the School and in the community.

 

Learning
Please see the Curriculum Grid for Year 6 below for an overview of what your child will be studying this term.

Homework in Year 6 is set on Thursday to be handed in the following Tuesday. Children will receive either a Grammar or Reading activity for English as well as a Spelling activity to practise the week’s spelling pattern. For Maths, there will also be an activity. In addition children will receive Spelling Key Words to practise on Monday to be tested on Thursday.

Developing a daily reading habit is absolutely vital to being successful in Year 6; we expect children to read at home for at least 20 minutes every day and bring in their signed Reading Records. Please help your child to develop this habit.

Uniform

As the oldest children in the school, we expect Year 6 children to set the standard for the rest of the school and always look smart in the correct school uniform.

In Year 6, children have two hours of P.E. a week. Please ensure your child has the correct kit in school from Monday to Friday.

 

Parents and Carers

During the first half of this term, we are holding a curriculum meeting where we will discuss the detail of your child’s learning this year, including homework expectations, give you important information about the SATs tests your child will be taking in May, explain about the Year 6 School Journey to the Paccar Scout Camp in Chalfont St.Peter and payment for that, and discuss ways in which you can support your child to be the best they can be this year.

 

And finally…

The Year 6 Team believe that Year 6 is the most rewarding year in primary school for children (and teachers!). We work extremely hard, but we fully enjoy ourselves too!

Please feel welcome to come and discuss any issues or concerns you may have. We really look forward to working with you to ensure that your Year 6 child has their best year yet at Lionel!
