Miss Revill

Year 6 Teacher

Mrs Buck

HLTA

Welcome to 6R

6R is taught by Miss Revill and Mrs Buck, our HLTA, on Wednesday afternoon.

 Welcome to 6R. Please use our website to find out all about what we will be learning throughout this year, keep up-to-date with upcoming events, find useful documentation linked to our curriculum (see file downloads at the end of this page) and much more. You can also view our gallery and Blog items which will show you just how much fun we have had learning throughout this year!

In Year 6, our theme for the Autumun Term is 'The Stone Age'. Our lessons will be cross-curricular which means that units of English, history, geography, computing, PSHE and some English lessons will be linked together to create a more broad experience. Planned activities include: learning about the lifestyle and belief systems of Stone Age people, researching how changes in the climate lead to migration and development of farming and how life events were recorded through art (detailed information can be found in the downloads area below titled: 'Autumn Term Curriculum Outline'). It would be fantastic if you could encourage your child to collect material from home - or from the library - to support this.

Homework

Homework will be set on a Friday and should be returned by the following Friday. In the lead up to SATs, children will be set weekly revision tasks. The pages numbers will be given to the children each week and will also be available in the news items below.

Every day, children should be practising their timestables and reading for 15 minutes.

If you ever have any concerns, questions or positive feedback about any aspects of the homework, then please feel free to contact us.

As children are required to know their multiplication tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4, a key area of focus is to develop our multiplication tables knowledge and become times table superstars! Strong multiplication table knowledge is crucial in many areas of maths and children should be able to recall these quickly and confidently. On top of your child's weekly mathematics homework, children should spend some time each week practising their times tables. Please enjoy exploring the times table activities below:
