Year 6 TEP

Welcome to Year 6 TEP!

Mr Partridge is our class teacher and Mrs Fenton is our Teaching Assistant. On a Thursday afternoon, Mrs Crockett teaches our class. 

  

In our class the rules and expectations are built around the core values of our school. 

English Information 

Reading is crucial in everything that children do. We aim to nurture a love of reading and encourage children to read a wide range of texts. We monitor children’s reading at home through the Home School Diaries and each week we award one child as reader of the week.   It is a whole school expectation that children read at least five times per week, where children should be reading for between 15 and 30 minutes per day. Please also remember to sign diaries once children have read. We teach reading through Guided Reading sessions in school each day where we spend time reading and analysing texts. Writing is taught through key texts, which we choose to match the children’s interests. Here children are given opportunities to write for a range of audiences and purposes. 

  

Maths Information 

The principal focus of Mathematics teaching in Year 6 is to ensure that children become increasingly fluent with whole and decimal numbers, fractions, the four operations, geometry, statistics and the concept of place value. This should ensure that children develop efficient written and mental methods and perform calculations accurately. Children should also develop their ability to solve a range of problems and develop mathematical reasoning. By the end of Year 4, pupils should be fluent with times tables up to the 12s, so they should be able to use these in a variety of situations in Year 6, as they underpin most units in Maths. 

Discrete Maths lessons are taught on a daily basis although Maths is linked across the curriculum where possible. Children are encouraged to use and apply their Maths skills through real life situations. 

 

PE and Kit Information 

Our PE day is Monday. It is really important that the children have a suitable PE kit which they will wear to school on our PE days so that they can participate fully in the activities. 

 

The PE kit is as follows: 

Navy shorts, white polo shirt, white socks, navy joggers, navy jumper and trainers.  (Please note: sun hats will be needed during the summer) 

  

Homework 

The CGP English SATs question book will be sent home each week with a piece of English homework (Reading or Writing). Maths homework will be in CanDo SATs books provided by school. Teachers will indicate which aspect to cover each week. There will also be a piece of homework for children to complete on SeeSaw. This activity will be linked to what we’ve been learning in the afternoons, for example History or Science. Work will be set on a Monday and must be returned by the following Monday. 

In addition, spellings are practised and learned through Spelling Shed where children are challenged weekly on their spellings. 

All children will also need to learn all times tables by heart to use in their Maths work this year.  Reading remains a priority and we expect the children to read at least 5 times a week.  It is really important with all homework that the children are encouraged to complete it independently- and only supported when necessary. 

Homework is based upon the topics covered during that week and is explained to the children before being sent home. If children are unable to complete their homework, please encourage them to approach their teacher to have the homework explained further. 

  

Unlocking Learning 

All children have a Bug Club, Spelling Shed, Times Table Rockstars and Education City login. These resources can be used at home to encourage further learning.  Please support your child in using the following websites:
