 Term 1: The Victorians

“On Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th September, Year 6 went on a trip to St John’s Museum in Warwick. As we arrived at the Museum we were greeted by Rupert who told us to put on our Victorian school clothes. We were then informed that Miss Roach would be our teacher. During the hour-long lesson, we learnt about what they did in Victorian schools. We then went into the laundry to wash and iron the clothes. After lunch we went to look at all the old toys in museum, including a very scary Punch and Judy.”

 Supporting your child at home

Reading

It is really important that children read at home at least four times a week and that the reading diary is signed by an adult. Children who have not read enough over the week will have to spend Friday break time (15 minutes) reading in school. If children read at home four times over the course of a week, they will receive a raffle ticket to be entered into the Reading Raffle to win a book at the end of the term. Continuing from Year 5, I will be encouraging children to read a greater variety of texts and introducing them to more authors. We still have a ‘Classics’ library in the classroom so children can choose to take a classic text home. I have included an updated book list for Year 6.

Spellings

This year, we will be revising all spelling rules and words learned during Key Stage 2 as any of these words could appear in our spelling test. The words for term 1 have been included in the homework books this week. Please support your child learning these. Spelling is a really key skill and requires practice. Writing words out several times and using Look, Cover, Say, Write and Check are very effective strategies. Pupils will be tested weekly to ensure they are making good progress.

Mathletics

Children will be assigned learning on Mathletics so that they are practising key skills. Children who have had difficulties will be reassigned tasks so that they have the opportunity to improve. Tasks will be assigned each Friday and differentiated to your child’s specific learning targets. Children who are still unconfident with their multiplication and division facts need to continue to practise these at home; Mathletics has a game that specifically targets this.
