Home Learning Set 14.9.18
This week the children's home learning will be three-fold:
- Firstly, there is a spelling list below which your child should try to learn. This will be a weekly occurrence and the list supports the learning that happens in our Friday spellings lesson.
- Secondly, your child will have a maths activity set for them on the MyMaths website. They will have received their MyMaths login details and should log on and complete these tasks by Friday 21st. If your child is unable to complete this online homework for whatever reason, please let us know and we will ensure they are able to complete it in school.
- Thirdly, your child should complete a task from the literacy learning wall which should be in their home learning books, but is reproduced below.

Out of this World!
Children in Year 6 have been designing spacecraft in which to spend five years searching for a new planet to call home.
Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to the Year 6 web page. On this page, you will find lots of useful information: key dates for trips, letters, a curriculum overview and lots more! Year 6 is a fantastic year and the children will have lots of opportunities to showcase their range of skills and talents. If you have any questions about your child's learning, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Jarman (young or old!). We are both looking forward to a fantastic year :)

Literacy and Numeracy Term 1
In this section of our web page, we will provide regular updates regarding our Numeracy and Literacy content. We will endeavour to supply the information before we teach the content which will enable parents/carers to chat about it with their children if they wish.
Literacy: We start the year of by studying genres, using a range of stimulus. Children will be reading and writing adventure stories, funny stories and even some horror!
Numeracy: We start the year with place value and in the first few weeks we will be looking at numbers up to 10 million, including decimals. The children will be learning to read, write, order and round the numbers. These are the objectives from the National Curriculum:
- round any whole number to a required degree of accuracy
- use negative numbers in context, and calculate intervals across zero
- solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above
- read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10 000 000 and determine the value of each digit
The children will be given a spelling task each Friday and these words should be practised at home. This will not start until week 2. You will find the spellings below.
Maths homework will be online with my maths. Your child will be given a log on in the next few weeks and set homework which is relevant to what we have been doing in class. Please see us if you have any problems doing homework online.
For literacy, the children will be given a homework bank(please see below) for the first two terms. They should aim to do one homework per week but may choose which one . The homework should be done in their homework books and handed in by Wednesday each week.
Thanks you in advance in supporting your child's home learning.
Curriculum Overview Term 1
Here you can find information regarding all other aspects of the curriculum for the forthcoming term.
Topic: Much of our wider curriculum this year, including our literacy where possible, will be organised around topic themes. This term our topic is 'Out of this world' and the children are being asked to think about the consequences of the Earth becoming uninhabitable in the Year 2050. We will look at how we can survive on a spaceship and also be learning about space in general. Our science, PSHE, ICT, music and art this term will be part of this theme.
Science: In term 1 the children will learn about the solar system, rocks and soils, the names of planets and will be investigating water powered rockets.
PE: The focus for PE in term 1 is tag rugby. Both classes will have designated PE slots on Tuesday and Thursday so please ensure your child brings in the correct kit of black shorts, white t-shirt and suitable footwear.
RE: The children will be studying Islam this term, specifically they will be trying to answer the question “Why are mosques important to muslims?”
ICT: The children are timetabled for lessons in the ICT suite every week as well as having access to laptops in class. They will map the movement of planets, research star constellations, use databases and create a power point presentation about the planets.
PSHE: Our topics in P.S.H.E. for this term is 'Being me in my world' which includes ideas such as New Beginnings and being a global citizen. Much of our PSHE is based on our topic work and will include living together in a spaceship, roles and responsibilities, and keeping safe and healthy.
