Welcome to Year 6 - The Eagles
This term our topic will be ‘Pack up your troubles’. During our study of this topic, we will be looking at World War 2, specifically how it affected like in the UK. As part of this study, we will be visiting Weston Park.
Please, could you remind your child to hand their 'Homelink Book' in every day. This is to be used for any messages as well as a reading record for the children to use. Year 6 are encouraged to read at least six times a week and to write a brief summary of what they have read. It is also helpful to make a note of interesting vocabulary or phrases to magpie for their own writing. The children all have login details for the online site https://readtheory.org/ where they can complete online comprehension papers.
We have also included log on details in the front cover of children's homelink books for SPAG.com, Mathletics and Spellzone. These are excellent sites that will help children regularly practise skills they have learnt in school and provide children with a way of focusing on a certain areas that they perhaps feel they need to improve.
Homework will be given on a Thursday and should be returned on Thursday.
I have also included links to literacy, numeracy and science websites which will assist your learning. If you know of any useful websites, please let me know so I can add them for other people to access.
