Brazil – Year 6

Welcome back! We are now in spring term which means the countdown is soon to begin. The children have settled in well to year 6 and are getting into the swing of things.

Homework

You will be expected to use a variety of apps to support your learning throughout the week, including; TT Rockstars, Read Theory, Spelling Shed and Purple Mash.

We may set additional Maths, English and spelling homework to consolidate our knowledge.

And we will, of course, continue with the half termly Bingo homework.

We expect all children to be reading for at least 15 minutes per day and to use a range of the above learning apps throughout the week. Read Theory is a fantastic (and free!) resource to help your child with their comprehension skills.

As you are in Year 6 you are expected to be able to organise your time to ensure you get your homework completed.

 

P.E. and Swimming Kit

Your kit remains the same; black shorts, white t-shirt, suitable footwear and an Ardley Hill tracksuit. We will have PE on a Thursday afternoon.

For swimming you will need a one piece swimming costume or trunks, towel, flip flops or other suitable footwear, a swimming cap for long hair and a carrier bag for wet clothes. Swimming for Brazil class will take place in Spring 2.
