Welcome to year 6!

Welcome to our year 6 page!

We have all made a really good start to our last year at Woodlands. This term our topic is ‘Land of the Free’ where we are discovering all things American. As part of this topic, we will be learning about America, including: landmarks, states, Native Americans, extreme weather and lots more. In our science topic, we will be learning about living things and their habitats.

Mrs Shephard’s class have outdoor learning until October half term.

After October half term, Mrs Shephard’s class have PE.

The homework expectations for year 6 are as follows:

  • Daily reading with an adult at home (Parents please could you sign the reading record and write a comment).
  • Daily rapid recall/practise of times tables and other mathematical facts (This could involve: practising times tables, calculations, number facts, problem solving when shopping – e.g working out the total cost and change etc).

We will also be giving out at least one homework project each half term. As this topic is over a few weeks, there is an expectation that this will represent a few weeks of effort. Finally, additional pieces of homework will be handed out to children on a Monday. Any additional homework given out will need to be returned in the same week, on Friday.

Spellings will be posted at the start of the week with a spelling test every Friday.
