Welcome to Year 6 - The Falcons
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.
Due to Covid-19, several things about life in Falcons class have changed. We no longer use Homelink Books, so please either call or email any messages you have to reception. We encourage Year 6 children to read at least six times a week and to write a brief summary of what they have read. This can be sent to us via SEESAW. The children should also have login details for the online site https://readtheory.org/ where they can complete mini comprehension tests.
The children will also have login details 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 set on a Thursday via SEESAW and will be expected back the following Thursday, again via SEESAW. I will be running a homework club on Monday and Tuesday for the children to catch up on any homelearning tasks they have not completed. If you do not have access to a laptop, please let the school know and we will do our best to provide you with one.
I have also included links to literacy, numeracy and spelling 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.
