Welcome to the Supersonic Sixes Class page. We are a supersonic and enthusiastic class ready to be inspired and to learn. Year 6 is an important and exciting year and I am sure all of our children will rise to the challenge.
Autumn Term 2017
Our theme for this term is water. In the first half term we will be learning about the Vikings and in the second half term our focus will be on the water cycle.
As part of our reading workshop we shared a typical guided reading session and also looked at the pitch of year 6 reading. It is really important that all children read regularly at home. They should be reading a range of texts including fiction and non-fiction. Our class book at the moment is The Phantom Tollbooth - it is a fantasy story that has some excellent links with grammar and a good range of vocabulary.
Homework will be set on Thursdays and will be due in on the following Monday. Homework will always include a piece of grammar work and a maths activity as well as the weekly spellings.
We will be doing outdoor PE on Tuesdays and indoor PE on Thursdays. Please make sure your child has their PE kit in school all week in case of any changes or additional activities.
These are the spellings that have been given out this half term.
High Frequency Words
These are the 200 most-used words in the English language and this is the first place to start if your child has difficulties spelling. If they can spell them all, then they can move on to the next-most frequent spellings (high-frequency words).
Medium Frequency Words
These are also important spellings and, once your child can regularly and reliably spell the first 200, they should begin to learn these. They are not all straightforward and they may have to write them out many times (in joined-up [cursive] script) before they sink in (medium-frequency words).
Your child will also we bringing home 10 spellings selected from the New Primary National Curriculum. These words include specific spelling patterns such as prefixes and suffixes, plus words that all children MUST learn by the end of year 5. These spellings will be available on our VLE.
