Kingstone & Thruxton Primary School

Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

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

Our topic at the moment is 'I'm a Year 6 - Get me out of here!' We will be learning how to read maps and will be planning a series of routes, both within the school grounds and the surrounding areas. We are looking forward to taking Year 1 on a mini beast hunt soon. This topic will form the basis of our work in all other subjects too.

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 Times Table Rockstars, Prodigy Maths and Read Theory. These can both be accessed at both home and school.

Children 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 PE on a Wednesday afternoon so will need either their swimming or PE kit in school.
