6SW

Welcome to 6SW

 

6SW is taught by Miss Whitehead. All parents are welcome to speak to the Year 6 team in the playground at 3.15pm or arrange an after school meeting if they have something to discuss.

 

SATs are fast approaching - here are a few tips:

What you can do at home:

  • Practise your times tables daily on the '10 minutes a day times tables' app by Dorling Kindersley Ltd (DK)
  • Tell the time whenever you can: read the clock at home, convert digital to analogue, read the bus timetable
  • Count the change: when you are in a shop, calculate how much change you should get from the shop keeper before it is given to you
  • Read every day
  • Practise your key word spellings - these are in the middle of your reading record
  • Do all of your homework - do a little bit every night so it is in manageable chunks
  • Ask for help with your homework if you need it!

 

Feeling the pressure?

  • Talk to someone - a friend, member of the family, teacher
  • Do some exercise - walk the dog, run around the park, go to the swimming pool
  • Close your eyes, breathe deeply and imagine you are somewhere sunny and doing something fun
  • Turn off your technology - don't compare yourself to others - each of you are unique
  • Do some colouring or reading

 

Below are a few things you need to remember:

 

School uniform:

We expect to see you in a school jumper, school polo t-shirt, grey trousers or skirts, white socks and black shoes. Please do not wear trainers to school - save them for your PE lessons or weekends. No jewellery or elaborate headbands should be worn. If you or your parents/guardians have any questions about uniform then please refer to the uniform policy or speak to someone in school.  

 

PE kit:

PE kit is needed every Thursday and should include; a white t-shirt, blue shorts, white socks, pumps or trainers. It needs your name on and should be kept safely in a PE bag on your peg. As you are getting older and starting to perspire, your PE kit should be washed regularly.  

 

Homework:

Homework is due in on a Wednesday morning. If you forget your homework then it will be noted and you will miss a break time. Homework club will run on a Tuesday lunch time and everybody is welcome!

 

Reading:

We expect you to read at least 3 times a week. If you read to an adult for 15mins they can sign your reading record. You can also read on your own for 15mins and if an adult has seen you do this, then they can sign your reading record too. Reading records are looked at on a Thursday morning and we expect to see at least 3 signatures in your reading record. Reading is celebrated in our school, you could be entered into our class reading challenge and win some fabulous prizes!

 

Bug Club:

Bug club an opportunity for you to read a range of books online. If you are having trouble getting online or finding the time to read at home then let us know.

 

Spellings:

Children are expected to learn and practise their spellings at home.
