Year 6 2020 - 2021

Miss Dempsey

Dear Parents and Carers,

We would like to wish you a warm welcome back to Ashbury Meadow. Here you will find all the important information about school this half term, and the topics that we will be studying and learning about in the Autumn term. We have attached the knowledge organisers that will support the children’s learning for this term and a copy of the curriculum that we will be studying,

In Year 6 this year, Mr Gibson will be teaching 6G with Miss Madden and Miss Dempsey will be in 6D with Mr McNeil. Mr Long will be supporting children from both classes and taking small groups for Maths, Reading and English each day.

As you may know, school is changing slightly this year and we will be following a slightly different timetable to allow for social distancing and revisiting work that may have been missed last year. Year 6 is vital year, in May we have the SATS examinations which are set by the government and it is imperative that the children respond to feedback in the classroom, complete homework and read on a daily basis.

We have included a list of important information below that is crucial to your child’s learning. If there are any issues, please speak to a member of the Year 6 team and they will be able to help.

Key Information

-Children will need to wear their PE kits every Monday. They must come into school wearing their kit as there will be no changing facilities available; a white top, black tracksuit trousers or shorts are acceptable with trainers. Children that are not wearing the correct footwear will not be able to partake in the PE lesson.

-Please make sure your child comes to school with a water bottle each day as there will be no access to the water fountain in school. Children will be able to fill their bottles during the school day and these will be kept on their desk in front of them. Each day they must be taken home to allow for cleaning and brought back the following day.

-Children must not bring any personal items to school (pencil cases, equipment, toys etc) and all equipment that children need will be provided by school. They must not take equipment from the classroom home.

-Each Friday, the children will be set two pieces of homework. Maths will be set via the Mathletics website and the English will be set via school spider. If there are any issues accessing the internet or the website please let us know and we will provide a paper copy for your child. The work should be completed by the following Tuesday.

-Spelling tests will be every Friday; the list will be uploaded on a Monday morning to the school spider and children will have the week to learn them before the test on the Friday. They will also have daily opportunities in the classroom to consolidate their learning.

Home Reading

This year, home reading books will be sent out each Monday and they must be returned by the Friday of that week. This allows the book to be quarantined for 72 hours before being given out the following week in compliance with the government guidelines.

Pupils have been given their login details to access our school learning apps at home. They can use Lexia to revise their reading skills while Mathletics and Time Table Rockstars can be used to practise their mathematical skills and times tables.

The teachers email for the Lexia is:

Many thanks
