Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Cook, Drake and Shakespeare

Wow! What a fantastic start to Year 6. Everyone has returned to school full of confidence and showing excellent determination and effort to hit the ground running. This year, Endeavour will have three Year 6 classes across both campuses and we welcome two new, experienced Year 6 teachers to the team. In addition, Mr Smith has moved up with his class and will become the Year Leader for Year 6.

 

The team

Cook Class - Mr Jenkins (Class Teacher) and Mrs Evans (Teaching Assistant)

Drake Class - Mr Smith (Class Teacher) and Miss Glenister (Teaching Assistant)

Shakespeare Class - Mrs Wiles (Class Teacher) and Miss Harris / Mrs Selby (Teaching Assistants)

We are all really excited to welcome all of the students into Year 6, in what we are sure will be a fun packed, exciting year ahead.

 

Project: Anchor values and Robot Wars!

During the first half-term, we will be completing two projects. The first will be a two week project which will give the students an opportunity to really think about our school ’Anchor Values’, and how we apply them to our everyday lives. We will then look at the best and most entertaining way to present the values to the different year groups. The second project will involve the students delving into the world of robot making! This will involve them writing instructions on how to build robots and programing their robots to move using previously taught and new coding skills. 

 

Home Learning

This half-term’s home learning project will be based around the above mentioned projects. Also, in Year 6 we will be setting additional weekly learning opportunities for students to access. This will help support students with any additional gaps in their learning and start to prepare them for secondary school.

 

Spellings: We will continue to send home weekly spellings every Friday which will be tested in school the following Friday. Please support your child at home to learn their spellings.

Reading: Please continue to read with your child as often as possible at home and record in their home school diary. When reading, question your child to check their understanding. We encourage you to take part in our school wide ‘12 Books Reading Challenge’. By taking part, your child will have the opportunity to read a range of genres and develop their reading for pleasure.

Times tables: Please support your child with learning their times tables at home. In Year 6, we are continuing to revise all times tables. Start by focussing on recalling them in order and looking at number patterns. Then, work towards being able to recall them out of order as well as the link to division facts.

 

PE

Our PE this half term will be on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon. Please ensure your child has the appropriate PE kit in school to take part in either an indoor or outside session.
