Here is the Year 5/6 Spelling list from the National Curriculum:
- Reading continues to be important in Year 6 and hopefully by this stage children should be engaged with and excited by a range of books. Children get to choose a book that they can read both at school and at home. Once finished, they need to complete a review sheet and have it checked by me before choosing another.
- Ideally, children in Year 6 should be aiming to read for 30 minutes each day.
- In Year 6, children are expected to know ALL their times tables and need to ensure that they are practised every day.
- All children have a Times Tables Rockstars account which they should used as a part of their homework.
- If your child has forgotten their login details, please get in touch and I can get it sorted for them.
- Year 6 will have their outdoor day on a Monday. Please ensure your child is wearing appropriate clothing and footwear to be working and learning within the outside environment.
- The children will have two hours of PE a week.
- In Autumn 1, Year 6 will go swimming on a Monday morning. Children MUST be at school on time, ready to leave promptly at 08:55.
- All students should have full PE kit with both indoor and outdoor footwear in case they go outside.
- Earrings are strictly forbidden to be worn in PE and should be removed before school unless the child is competent taking them out and putting them in themselves.
