Spring Friday 16 January 2015
Some general information on day to day life in Year 6:
PE – to be confirmed. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school on those days.
Mobile Library – we will visit the library once a month. We will notify the children a week in advance.
School Library – we visit the school library every week.
Open Session – we will be holding an open session for parents in September to discuss the year ahead.
To celebrate their time at City Road, Year 6 will perform a Leavers’ performance in July. Although we can’t show the videos on the website, you can always pop along to the entrance hall to see the most recent videos on the display screen.
Children in Year 6 will receive Literacy homework on a Friday and this will be expected back by the following Wednesday.
As you are aware, we are fortunate enough to be part of a project called MathsFlip which the children started in Year 5. MathsFlip involves ‘flipping’ the traditional model of completing homework after the lesson. It will instead involve pupils doing some activities before the lesson, for example watching a video and then answering some questions at home or completing a MyMaths task. The school have been given some devices and children will have access to the device weekly to complete their homework.
Throughout the term children will also have Topic related homework, this will involve them creating and making models.
Please encourage your child to complete all of their homework tasks and to return to school before the deadline.

This half term we will be visiting the Galleries of Justice Museum in Nottingham to explore crime and punishment over time.
In Year 6 we expect children to know and recall their multiplication facts quickly and accurately. We also expect pupils to read a wide range of texts, for example, fiction, non-fiction, newspapers and poetry. We expect all pupils to complete all homework to the best of their ability. All pupils are expected to be responsible for their own time management and organisation, for example, returning set homework on time.
6H and 6J each have a class reading journal that each child will take home at least once a year. Your child will be expected to read a book and complete the journal, this could be a review of the book, their likes and dislikes and how they think it could be improved.
The children will also have a personal reading journal to record books that they have read at home and at school. These will also include information on spelling and grammar. Children must ensure these are in school daily.
Each child in Year 6 will read with an adult at least once a week. During Guided Reading sessions, children will also have the opportunity to complete tasks independently linked to their text. Children also have access to the class and school library in order to select books to read for pleasure.
During this half term in Literacy we will be learning:
