In Year 6, we expect children to have their P.E. kit in school every day. This should include: shorts, t-shirt and trainers or pumps. You will also need jogging bottoms and a jumper when the weather gets colder.  Children will need to take their P.E. kit home weekly to ensure that it is clean for the following week.

P.E. DAYS

Tuesday and Friday

 

Children are expected to read at home four times every week. This needs to be recorded in their reading record and signed by parents.

Children will be sent home spellings every week that they will need to learn and will be tested on a Friday.

Children will also receive ONE piece of English and ONE piece of Maths homework every week which will be given out on a Friday and handed in on a Wednesday!  

In Year 6, children CONTINUE to practice all of their times tables to 12 x 12. You can help by asking multiplication questions around the house, or walking to school. Useful websites include:

Times tables grid games

Multiplication games

 

Next, try and challenge your child by:

 

-         Getting them to TOTAL a small number of items bought in the local shop.

 

-         Measure something in your home to the nearest cm or mm.

 

-         Check one of your household bills and work out which NOTES you would need to pay the BILL and what change you may receive.
