Welcome to Year 6 @ Church Vale Primary School.
PE is currently on a MONDAY, children need to come to school already in their PE kit (plain dark shorts, plain dark jogging/tracksuit bottoms, a plain white top and black or grey jogging/tracksuit top (or they can wer their school jumper. They also need to not be wearing earrings on this day please. Year 6 are also fortunate enough to be having Forest Schools on TUESDAYS - they can wear their outdoor PE clothes but you may wish to send them in clothing which is more suitable for exploring in a woodland area - potentially during the rain if the last few weeks are anything to go by!
As always, we ask that all pupils read at least 3 times a week and record this in their reading diary (we add up the reads every Friday). We have also introduced a 3 times a week times tables practise at home challenge where pupils can eran treat/event activities each half term for doing this at least 3 times every week. We also have weekly spellings to learn - you child has a copy of the words but can also practise them on Spelling Shed (they should know their logins but please contact us if they have midlaid them).
Just as a reminder, if any pupil gets a positive PCR result, we will begin setting them Seesaw home learning as soon as we are notified. For any days in the meantime, there are many activities listed at the bottom of this page, pupils have Spelling Shed and TTRockstars access to practise on and Year 6 also have access to SATS COMPANION. https://app.satscompanion.com/login
This will enable us to set relevant tasks for you child, see how they're doing and set suitable follow-up tasks for them so that they can be learning relevant topics at the right levels for them. Your child has received a couple of copies of their login details, but if they've been mislaid, please contact us (at the bottom of this page) and we'll be happy to send the details again.
As we try and get back to 'normal' life in the world, we are determinded to give Year 6 as brilliant an experience as we possibly can and hope that our London trip will be a brilliant start to this!
Our topic during the first term is 'The Romans' where we'll be finding out about life in Ancient Rome and in Britain during the Roman invasions. We'll also be finding out about how the Romans changed Britain for all of us in the present day.
Any questions, comments, please use the contact section at the bottom of the page or message us through school's facebook account.
