Welcome to the Year 6 class page.
Our teacher is Mrs Smith and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Hennessey.
Our PE days are Tuesday (Cricket) and Thursday (Athletics) for this term.
Please remember to log into TTRS regularly; you have been set 3 sessions to complete before you can choose your games. Check Abacus for the games that have been assigned to you; this may not be each week. Remember to read each day. We will collect reading records in each Monday - please ensure that you have asked an adult to sign it for you. There are prompts in your records to help you if you are struggling with what to write about your book.
Year 6’s Acts of Service
Please play regularly. You have been set sessions in the Studio. Once you have completed this, you will be able to access the other games :-).
PLEASE GET AN ADULT TO SIGN YOU RECORD EACH WEEK.
Reading Focus: To check my understanding of books I have read through discussion and exploring the meaning of words.
Make sure you comment in your reading record. I have added some ideas for you to write about below if you are struggling:
Think about new words you come across.
Make predictions about events.
Summarise what you have read.
Explain why you like a character.
How is what you are reading similar to something else you have read - make connections.
Find your favourite sentence and explain why.
Please find an information video which has been put together on how you can support your child with learning to spell. These strategies can be used during as well as post Lockdown to inspire your child to learn their spellings and retain them.
I have also added a crib sheet of the strategies presented in the video as well as some additional strategies which aren't mentioned in the video.
Next week, the video will be moved to the Video Centre.
