Year 6 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 6!
My name is Mr Scott, I am the Year 6 teacher at St Stephen's C of E Primary School. Please see below for important information about our class this year.
This term will very much be about assessing, assisting and rebuilding our children’s literacy and numeracy skills in light of the interruptions to school life last year. This will be a massive priority for us going forward. In literacy we will be doing poetry and Greek myths and in Maths we are looking at core maths skills including place value.
In our wider curriculum this term, we will be learning the following:
In Science – we will be learning about the exciting topic of forces. In Computing – we will be looking at online safety. In History and Geography, we will be looking at Ancient Greece. In Art and DT, we will be looking at using our knowledge of Ancient Greece to create traditional Greek food and pottery. In RE – we will be looking at Judaism. Music this term will be spent either learning a brass instrument or studying Gustav Holst’s ‘The Planets’. In PE, we will be doing gymnastics and tag rugby and in PSHE we will be looking at our relationships including our own family.
We are currently looking at sourcing multiple exciting experiences for your children to participate in this year. As soon as we have all the details and have carefully risk-assessed them, we will be in touch with you via Class Dojo in due course…watch this space!
Please ensure your child has their water bottle in school – if possible with a non-spill spout. Keeping hydrated is an important part of maintaining concentration and keeping healthy.
Key Stage 2 snacks:
Children can bring in a snack for morning break. The snack should be a healthy piece of fruit.
Parent Pay/Class Dojo
Parent Pay is our online system where you can pay for school-related items such as: school uniform, school trips, water bottles, PE kit and reading bags. Class Dojo is our online behaviour management system which allows teachers to praise a child directly for their fantastic attitude to learning, as well as provide a communication platform between home and the class teacher.
Essential PE kit
The following PE kit is needed for all pupils:
Indoor sessions (Thursdays) - Plain white round neck t-shirt, plain black shorts, black PE pumps.
Outdoor sessions (Friday) – Same as above plus a sweatshirt and tracksuit bottoms (for colder weather). Old trainers are recommended for outdoor PE.
Swimming sessions (If applicable to your child) – Towel, swimming costume/trunks, goggles (permission note required), swimming cap, separate bag for wet clothes.
No earrings can be worn on these days.
Literacy and maths homework will be set on Thursday or Friday and should be completed and returned to school by the following Tuesday.
Any child who does not yet know their times tables, needs to be accessing TT Rock Stars daily to ensure to catch up as soon as possible.
Daily reading of at least 20 minutes per day is expected of all pupils.
A home reading record will be provided for you to comment and sign. All pupils should have their reading records signed daily by yourselves. If you have any questions you can contact myself via Class Dojo.
