Kingstone & Thruxton Primary School

Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Year 6 is taught by Miss Bilbrough (Class teacher) and is supported Mrs Tomkins (Teaching Assistant). We are a class of 23 children.

Our topic at the moment is World War Two and our Science big question is 'Have we always looked like this?' We are exploring evolution and inheritance.

Spelling tests happen on a weekly basis and new spellings will are given out immediately afterwards. All chidren have a graffiti spelling book where their current spellings and next test date are always recorded.

Homework will be set on Education City each week and will generally be linked to what we have been learning about in class. There will always be optional topic project homework available too. Please ask if you would like a copy of this. Children in Year 6 have all got a log in for Prodigy Maths and Read Theory. These can both be accessed at both home and school.

Children in Year 6 are expected to read at least four times a week at home. Children are heard read at school, but we would appreciate if you could find time to hear your child too. When you hear them read please sign their reading diaries to acknowledge this. Reading books and diaries should be brought to school every day along with spelling books.

Year 6 have outdoor learning on a Tuesday afternoon, so will need outdoor clothes in school on this day. As well as weekly PE sessions, children have an opportunity every day to walk, jog or run for ten minutes. Linking to Maths, children will be tracking how far they have run in order to arrive at different points around the country. It is essential that all children have a pair of trainers in school at all times.
