Year 6 - Eagles and Wolves
Autumn Term 2020
Welcome back. We have missed having you in school and are excited to welcome you back.
We are looking forward to working with your children in their final year. This page is designed to provide you with the information needed to make the year as successful as possible.
This half term our History focus is The Normans. The children will also be learning computing skills. After the half term break, we will have an R.E focus on St Paul and the Apostles. More information will follow closer to the time.
Year 6 P.E. days this year will be:
Wolves: Mondays and Thursdays
Eagles: Mondays and Thursdays
Your child must wear their P.E. kit on these days to and from school.
Failure to have it is likely to result in them not being able to participate in the lesson. In addition, children will not be able to participate if they do not have the correct P.E. kit. Please see the school website for more information on the P.E. kit requirements. If your child has their ears pierced, they will be required to either take out the earrings or cover them with tape for the lesson. Please remember Cooks Spinney only allows small stud earrings in school.
Homework and Spellings
Homework will be given out on Tuesdays and will be due in the following Monday. This can be found on Mathletics and Reading Eggs. Spellings must not only be practised, but also written into full sentences. If your child does not know the meaning of the word and is unable to find a definition, please make sure they speak to a member of the Year 6 team.
Reading is an integral part of Year 6.This year we are having a big push to promote a love of reading across the school. It is very important that you ensure your children are reading on a daily basis, and, where possible, ask them questions about what they have read to support their comprehension.
If you have any questions or concerns at any point throughout the year, please speak to either your child’s class teacher or another member of the Year 6 Team.
We wish them all the best in their final year at Cooks Spinney.
Mrs Dackombe, Miss Farrell, Mrs Povey, Ms Pearce.
