To all Year 6, This is a little message to you from all of us at Wild Bank.

Watch, enjoy and remember that we are always thinking about you.

Reading

In order to enhance the children's love for reading and the impact reading has on our writing, we encourage regular reading at home. Topic links are really useful for the children to be able to dive into another world and develop an in depth understanding. We will also be writing: instructions, non-chronological reports and letters. Reading a range of these really supports our interest and engagement in writing along with development of vocabulary and text type features. 

 

Other Information

PE (Friday) - Pumps, tshirt and shorts.

  

Homework 

Homework will be given out every Friday. There will be two pieces (maths and English/topic) as well as spellings mostly from the Year 5/6 spelling list. These are to be returned on Monday.

Reading records are checked every Monday with a minimum expectation that the children have read three times over the course of the previous week. 

If your child accesses Reading Plus, it is beneficial for them to complete these at home also.

Times Tables Rock Stars is a website which supports the learning of times tables - an underlying necessity for many math strategies. Practicing these greatly enhances our ability to solve more complex mathematical concepts. 

Children also have the opportunity to do extra work at home to win monsters points. Points mean prizes and the children are really motivated to achieve these!
