Welcome to 6WB

Miss Wharam and Miss Bowers both teach in 6WB. Miss Wharam teaches on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Miss Bowers teaches on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Curriculum

Each morning you will have sessions in maths, literacy and guided reading.

Through our topic we learn skills in history, geography, art and DT.

Each week, we also have sessions in science, ICT, RE, Music, PE and PSHE which are related to our topic when appropriate.

For more information on our topics this year, please see the link below.

Seesaw

We are using Seesaw more than ever this year, due to the current climate. Seesaw is a great way to communicate between home and school. Homework and spellings will be posted weekly. Reminders are posted when necessary. Your parents can get in touch with us via inbox message if they would like to notify or enquire about something. You all have a log in for Seesaw. Please let us know if you need your details sending again.  

Homework

Homework will be posted on Seesaw each week. This will be an extension of the work we have done in class during the week and is really important for you to consolidate your learning. This will need completing by the following Friday although doing it at the weekend could really benefit you, ready for Monday’s learning.

Spellings

Spellings will be posted on Seesaw each week. This will be similar to last year. A list of 15 spellings generally with the same spelling rule. If you can practise these on a daily basis this will benefit you massively. On a Friday, we will choose 10 from the list for a spelling test.

Times Tables

You all have a log in for Times Tables RockStars which has not changed from Year 5. Please ask if you need a reminder of your log in details. At the moment, I have set it to automatic training which will focus on the times tables you were not fluent in from your last gig session.

We will continue our weekly times tables tests on a Friday. Just like the spellings, it will really benefit you to practise your times tables on TT Rockstars on a daily basis, even if it is just a 3 minute daily garage game!

Reading

Due to the current situation, it is not possible to send books home for home reading. We have books in the classroom for you to read during our daily reading sessions. Please continue to read your own books at home too. You can pop us a message on seesaw to tell us what you have been reading.

Handwriting

We use letter join to support our handwriting development.

Please go to http://www.letterjoin.co.uk/ to login. Please ask for log in details.

 

PE

PE is on a Wednesday. Please come to school in your PE kit. This will be outdoors so black jogging bottoms, white t-shirt and a jacket/jumper are required along with trainers. A raincoat may be needed on wet days!

We hope this information is useful to you and your parents. Please let us know if we have missed anything or if you have any questions.

Miss Bowers & Miss Wharam
