Welcome to Year 6

 

In Year 6 this year we have Mr Coles, who will be teaching in Hamilton Class and Mr Carpenter who will teach in Lingfield class. Miss Mott is our wonderful teaching assistant who will be supporting us across the cohort each day. We are also lucky enough to have Mrs Bellinger, Mrs Nolan and Mrs Smith delivering interventions and covering the classes.


The enquiries we will be considering this year are: 

How are lives saved?

Who were the greater engineers? The Ancient Britons or the Victorians?

Linnaeus and Darwin - how are they connected?

Where does our food really come from?

How do we all live together?

Why are shadows important?

and

How big is your footprint?

 

These enquiries will form the basis of much of our subject learning throughout the year (Science, history, geography, DT, art and music) while we will continue to follow the Discovery RE scheme and Jigsaw for PSHE.  We will be enjoying plenty of outdoor PE sessions and are lucky enough to have PH Sports delivering Cricket for us this term. Our English (both reading and writing) will take inspiration from our enquiry topics. 

 

If you have any questions about life in Year 6, please email admin@queenscrescent.wilts.sch.uk 

 

At the end of the academic year, our Year 6 children move on to their chosen secondary school.  Most of our children move on to either:

 

                             Hardenhuish School                 Sheldon School              Abbeyfield School

                                    Hardenhuish                      Sheldon                      Abbeyfield

 

For further information about each term, please look out for our termly newsletters and any event letters that are sent home with the children.

 Homework in year 6

Dear Parents,

As you know, at Queens Crescent we greatly value homework in supporting your child’s learning. In year 6, especially, the discipline and independence required to complete homework is an essential part of preparing for secondary school.

Homework is also used to consolidate learning in class and act as preparation for future lessons, allowing your child to take full advantage of the teaching in class.

We know children work hard on their homework, so recognition of completed homework will focus on rewards, whereby children will earn a raffle ticket for each completed piece, with the possibility of receiving further raffle tickets for pieces that show exceptional effort.

If for any reason your child has difficulty with the homework, or for family reasons is unable to complete the homework, please don’t worry. Just let the class teacher know and we will understand and provide extra support if required. Also, for any homework set during term time, please encourage your children to spend no more than 30 minutes on it. If it is not completed that is fine, some children work more quickly than others, as long as they have given the task their best efforts.

Thank you for continuing to support your child with their homework. We hope you recognise that this is an important part of your child’s learning; but also, a useful link into their school life and what they are being taught.
