Year 6 B - Mrs Taylor 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 6
Our names are Mrs Taylor and Mrs Lawrence. Learning in Year 6 is supported by Mrs Jones and Mrs Oldham.
During the Autumn term, we will be looking at a range of topics in our class.
In Maths, we are looking at place value and the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).
During literacy, we are basing our writing on our class book ‘Beetle Boy’. We will use this as inspiration to write a piece of information writing. It will also be the basis of our reading lessons.
In the afternoons, we will look at a wide variety of topics, such as living things and their habitats in science, where our things come from in geography and World War Two in history.
Children receive weekly art sessions led by Mrs Walsh.
Our PE days are Mondays (with Mrs Adamczyk). Please make sure that your child has a named kit, which includes black pumps or trainers, black shorts and either a green or white t-shirt. Long hair needs to be tied back. All earrings need to be removed before school or the lesson for PE sessions. Where ears have recently been pierced, it is essential that children have their own plasters from home to cover their earrings. This needs to be done either at home or by the child themselves. This is in line with the school policy.
On Tuesdays we will be a swimming slot at Crewe Life Style Centre. Please make sure that your child brings a swimming costume/shorts and a towel.
Excellent attendance is vital for helping your child to achieve their full potential. Please ensure your child is in school promptly at 8.40.
School finishes at 3.15pm and children continue to be collected from classrooms at this time.
Spellings will be given out every Monday to be practiced at home for a spelling test on Friday. Parents are encouraged to read with their children every day to support progress in reading and to help nurture a love for reading.
There will be weekly TT Rockstar battles against the other Year 6 class, please ensure your child takes part as times tables are a vital part of your child’s education.
This is a very important year for your children with the SATs tests occurring in May 2022. Please ensure your child attends school. Booster clubs are likely to begin after Christmas - more details on the SATs process will be communicated to you in due course.
