Hello and welcome to Year 6's class page. I hope to make this page a helpful area for parents to keep in touch with all that the children are doing during the particular half term. Key messages and dates will be displayed on here so do keep using it as a tool if you're unsure.
Dates For Your Diary:
Meet the Teacher Meeting - Wednesday 18th September @ 6:20pm
Guided Reading is done as a whole class and we work through stages throughout the week. Monday is getting to know the text, Tuesday we pick out words we are unfamiliar with, Wednesday we answer multiple-choice questions, Thursday we answer closed questions and Friday we assess all the work we have done throughout the week.
We also use ERIC to support our work. ERIC is a text or photo that we answer questions - the four types of questions given in reading exams. An example is below.
Homework will continue to be given out on a Thursday and taken in on a Tuesday. The homework your child is set now consists of 3 pieces. There will be; a maths sheet with a variety of tasks on, a grammar sheets and a talk token. I have told the children to prepare themselves for an increase in the amount of homework compared to previous years. The work will range from Year 4 level to Year 6 level - just like their SATS tests will in May. So, some weeks may seem more complicated than others.
After Christmas, we are going to be working more on the Year 6 syllabus and children might find this more challenging. If they encounter any problems at home, encourage them to come in with their work on Friday or Monday and we can discuss it.
Talk Tokens are meant to encourage the children to become more confident in explaining things they have learnt, as well as engaging in conversation with an adult of their choice at home. Any feedback, please leave on the talk token (all is appreciated).
As mentioned at Meet The Teacher evening, here are the Kent Statements we will be using this year to assess your child.
Examples of Year 6 Work
Attached are links to three pieces of work. They range from working towards, working at and working at greater depth.
Within these documents you will see the grading process and how the marker came to their conclusions over 6 pieces of work.
