I have set the children up with a login and password to spag.com
I will be setting homework regularly on this and remind you that school do have a Kindle Fire for each Year 6 child which they can borrow for the duration of the year, once an agreement has been signed by parents.
Please contact the office if you wish to borrow a Kindle Fire for homework purposes only.
Reading at home
Please encourage daily reading at home and ask your child questions about what they have read. I have attached a useful document which gives you some question types to ask to determine whether they understand what they are reading, and please sign their reading record to record all their hard work!
As a school we pay for the wonderful Reading Plus program which contains lots of books, of different genres - definitely something for everyone - so we also encourage regular reading at home on this.

Children learn the importance of exercise and conduct a survey to find the most popular exercise in their class. They then apply their understanding by discussing different people's lifestyles and how this can affect their bodies. Finally, children will learn about drugs and alcohol and how they can have an impact on our bodies, specifically in relation to the circulatory system.
Year 6 Maths
We are following the White Rose Maths scheme of work and working very hard on our Reasoning and Problem Solving questions.
This term we will be learning about:
Fractions , Decimals and Percentages
Converting Units of Measure
Ratio and Algebra
In addition to our daily maths lessons, we are also working on our arithmetic skills and our sense of number. Times Tables Rockstars is a fantastic resource to be using daily so that those number facts are embedded! Please encourage your child to be using this as much as possible.
