William Shakespeare Class
Hello everyone and welcome to Year 6!
Please see below for all the information you need to know about year 6 at All Saints’!
Meet the Team:
Class Teacher: Mr Gibbs
Support Staff: Mrs Jones
If you need to make contact please email:
I will aim to respond to emails between 8am and 5:30pm during working days.
Homework is given out weekly in year 6. It is both given out and collected in every Friday.
For Maths this will often be in the form of an activity on MyMaths, however we will also be using the CGP SATS books to set activities for the children to complete as the year progresses. We will also set weekly spellings to be learnt at home. These spellings will be tested on a Friday.
Please encourage your child to read as much as possible outside of school. It would be useful for all children to read a range of genres and authors over the course of the year as this will develop their knowledge and understanding substantially. We expect all children to complete at least three reading entries per week and hope that children in our class will aim even higher than this and possibly target five entries per week. Children who complete five entries will be entered into our weekly prize draw.
Our P.E. days will be on Monday (Indoor P.E) and Tuesday (Outdoor P.E). Children are allowed to wear suitable P.E kit to school on these days and remain in their P.E kit all day.
The autumn term is a very exciting one in year 6! We studied the topic ‘Crime and Punishment’ during the first half term. During our ‘Crime and Punishment’ topic we considered how crime and punishment has changed from the time of the Romans all the way through to the present day and explored the legacy of crime and punishment left behind from various different time periods.
We have now moved on in the second half term of autumn to learning about 'Our Changing World' and have been identifying how different coastal features form, how erosion and weathering takes place and how the borders of countries have changed.
This term, we will be reading Michael Morpurgo’s book ‘Private Peaceful’ and extracts from other stories such as ‘Brightstorm’ by Vashti Hardy and ‘The Book of Stolen Dreams’ by David Farr. Using these books, children will be producing pieces of writing in a range of genres.
Spelling homework - due in 02/12/22:
awkward, bargain, bruise, category, cemetery
Children will also have another 5 spellings to practise at home. These spellings are chosen by the children from spelling mistakes they have made in their English books or in a spelling test and will be recorded in their spelling homework books.
Please take a look at our blog below to see what we have been learning!
