 This year we are continuing to focus on developing a love of reading.  Reading is an integral part of the primary curriculum so please ensure you are reading every day and recording it in your Reading/Spelling Journals. These are the little yellow books and should have your weekly spellings in them at the back, as well as space to record your reading progress at the front. 

Take a look at the Year 6 Recommended Reading List for ideas on age appropriate texts. 

 We are going to be sharing our love of books through a termly book circle, where we will talk about the books we have been reading. 

In September 2020, we will be have two reading books: one in school which will stay in school  to be read and one which we will take home and keep at home until it is read. We should not be carrying backs back and forth each day. All returned books will go into quarantine for 72 hours before being returned to the book shelf for others to read.

Click here for the 'Guide to using the little yellow book'

We have sent every child home with a VIPERS bookmark. These provide excellent prompts for question openers you may use when reading with or listening to your children read. VIPERS is the reading format we use in school so children are well versed in the different types and styles of questions they are asked. The same question prompts are used in the Y6 End of Key Stage SATs.

 Spellings will be given on the Friday of each week and will be tested on the following Thursday. There will be 6 spellings given that follow a particular rule each week, with 4 'mystery' words tested to see if the children have learnt the spelling rule as well as the spellings given.

Alongside this, we will also be focusing on our statutory spelling list for Years 5 and 6 this year, so each child will be given 25 spellings from this list per term and will then be tested at the end of that term. Please ensure that the weekly spelling rule, the 6 weekly spellings and the 25 termly spellings are being practised regularly.

It is also important that children know the meaning of the words they are learning to spell - we might ask you to put one into a sentence. 

 

OUR NEXT WEEKLY SPELLING TEST IS ON Thursday 17th June

This week, we are working on words from our YEAR 5/6 spelling list as listed as an expectation in the National Curriculum for KS2. See below for the full list for this week. 

 

Please print off or copy into your little yellow book, this week's spellings. Spellings should be recorded or stuck in the back of the little yellow book which has been sent home. PLEASE DO NOT BRING THIS BOOK BACK INTO SCHOOL. 

 

Below is a document that provides different spelling strategies to help children learn and remember their spellings at home.

HOMEWORK THIS YEAR WILL BE SET ELECTRONICALLY VIA GOOGLE CLASSROOM

Everyone will be given homework on the Friday of each week, which will need to be completed by the following Thursday.

All home learning will be linked to what we have been doing in class that week. 

 

We are going to be uploading home learning to this page and the Google Classroom on a Friday

Please can children view the home learning online via the pdf documents below. They need to then complete the work in their red 'Home Learning' book which has been sent home. This book needs to stay at home and this means children will not be bringing their homework into school. 

The answers will be uploaded on a Monday. Children can then mark their own work and try anything again that they get wrong. 

Once marked, a photo of the completed learning can uploaded to the Google Classroom or be sent to Mr Parkin

Children need to complete all home learning for that week by Thursday

PLEASE DO NOT RETURN RED HOME LEARNING BOOKS TO SCHOOL

Please make sure that if you are struggling with your homework, you come and see a member of staff as soon as you can. Do not leave home learning until the last minute. Year 6 is a great opportunity to learn good habits ready for secondary school.
