Virtual Learning- updated for 30.11.20
If your child is unable to be at school due to a period of isolation, we have provided a learning menu that you can use to continue their education at home. The learning menu will look very similar to that which you used at home during school closures so hopefully, you should be familiar with how it works. The learning featured mimics that which your child would receive at school ensuring they're staying up to date with the learning covered and won't feel behind when they return to school.
Please contact us via Dojo if you have any questions or queries relating to the learning menu and the continuation of your child's education whilst at home.
Mrs Goodfellow and Miss Killeen- Year 6 Teachers
This year, we will be sending home weekly and occasionally half termly Home Learning for your child to complete. Any Home Learning sent home will be an expectation of Year 6 and has been chosen to consolidate or embed skills that your child has been learning about or using within school.
For this half term, we would like children to complete the following:
TT Rockstars - 5 minutes each day will support instant recall of multiplication and division facts.
Reading - reading little and often each day will support fluency and comprehension. This does not have to always be reading independently; it could include reading to your child, reading collaboratively or listening to an audiobook. Remember, all completed books are worth points in our reading challenge - just ensure you complete a book review for each one.
Spellings - your child will be set spellings to learn each week via Spelling Shed. These will reflect the spellings we are tackling in school as well as some personal to your child and their progress.
Pupils in Jaguars are taught in a separate classroom Monday-Thursday mornings. Jaguars is a safe space to learn and means we can really focus on personalised provision and small step progress.
Your children will be taught by their main class teacher for all English and Maths in the morning and the majority of afternoon lessons, except on a Wednesday when it is PPA time for the class teachers.
Monday: Both classes- Topic .
Tuesday: Both classes- Science
Wednesday: Leopards - PSHE and Art with Mrs Powell. Lions - PSHE and Art with Mrs Goodfellow
Thursday: Leopards - RE with Mrs Powell. Lions - PE with Ant
Friday: Leopards - PE with Ant. Lions - RE with Mrs Powell
Here's a little more about some of the staff members teaching in Year 6 this year...
We have both worked really hard on making sure our classrooms are still inviting and nurturing spaces as well as being Covid Safe. Children have their own places to sit and their own equipment. Displays are updated regularly so they represent the learning that is taking place in the classes.
We have interactive displays, such as our Reading Challenge progress displays that encourage children to challenge themselves further.
