Autumn Term in Year 6


Welcome back! We hope that you have had an enjoyable summer and are well rested to begin the Autumn Term. Here are a few updates about events and routines happening in Year 6. Adults working closely with your child will be Mrs Hassall, Miss McHenry, Mr Bayliss, Miss Davies, Mrs Wortley & Mrs Sharrock. If you have any concerns, questions or celebrations, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


Reading

Please help your child by reading with them every night for 15 minutes. Even though they are now fluent readers, they need your support in answering questions about what happens in the text. Please also ensure your child is accessing Times Table Rockstars and Spelling Frame regularly.


Helping at home

You can help your child in their learning by completing homework alongside your child and asking in depth questions about strategies used. They will be given weekly homework which they will be expected to complete. In Year 6 there will be a maths and a grammar book that is given to your child at the start of the year, the expectation is that one page is completed in each book, each week. This will be set each Friday.

PE

Children will be swimming on a Wednesday morning, children to come to school in their school uniform.

6OH and 6TM PE is on a Friday

6PB PE is on a Tuesday

Please come in the correct PE kit.

Visits this term

This term we are hoping to organise a visit to Cannock Chase as an enhancement to our topic. Why not try and organise a family day out to visit there with your child?

Developing Independence

As this is the final year in primary school, it is important to develop your child’s independence and organisation. We are here to help during this process and please tell us of any changes to walking home arrangements.

Please ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school and it contains only water. To encourage a healthy lifestyle only healthy snacks should be consumed at break time.

Please ensure your child is in the correct school uniform, this helps promote the Moorhill way and helps prepare for high school.

Class Dojo

We will be using Dojo regularly to share information and upcoming events. Please make sure you check regularly to ensure key information is not missed.

Let us know if you can’t access Class Dojo and we will be happy to help.
