Dear parents/ carers,
On 03/02/20, Year 6 will be making their own models of Chichen Itza using wire and Modroc. In order to complete this activity to the best of their ability, the children will need to bring in wire cutters and pliers if you already have access to these at home. Please do not buy these especially. We will be demonstrating to the children how to safely use both implements and will be providing all other materials needed.
Thank you for your ongoing co-operation and support. If you have any questions regarding this activity then please contact us,
The Year 6 team.
Year 6 Homework
Reading - We expect the children to read at least three times a week. They should record this in their school planners, on the yellow pages. We ask parents to sign this weekly. After finishing a book the children should log onto the accelerated reader website to complete a comprehension quiz to show their understanding of the text. Children should then record their score in their planner. Planners are only checked on Monday by class staff. If reading is not completed / recorded within diaries, children will be given a lunch time detention on a Tuesday and will read quietly for 15 minutes.
Spellings - Children will be explicitly taught spelling rules within class. Spelling lists will not be sent home for learning as children will not sit weekly tests however, children are expected to use Spelling Shed frequently to practice their spelling rules and common exception words.
Extended Homework Challenges - Each term, children will be set a number of tasks to complete which link to the terms curriculum. These tasks are set to further enrich the learning of the pupils. Points will be given for each homework task completed and children will be rewarded accordingly based on the amount of points gained over the term. Completed work can be bought in at any point over the term.
Maths - Times Table Rock Stars / Mathletics will be set on a Tuesday. Children should complete these tasks at home and will gain a point for every session they carry out.
