Mrs Sarah Hall

Brooke Primary School

At the heart of it all is the child.

Y6HJ

Hello and Welcome to Year 6!  

   

I hope you all have had a fabulous summer break and you have enjoyed spending time with family and friends.     

 

English

In English we will be reading the book ‘Goodnight Mr Tom' by Michelle Magorian. We will also be using this book to create some imaginative pieces of writing.  

 

Mathematics

In mathematics we will be focusing a lot on arithmetic and reasoning questions. We will be embedding mathematic skills to help answer these questions.

Reading

Every child will take part in guided reading/shared reading session daily. Children will have the opportunity to read one-to-one with Mrs Stent, where they will be supported in reading and spelling Y5 & Y6 Statutory spellings. The children will also be given the chance to visit the library to change their book and explore different book genres.

 

Science

This term we will be learning about electricity and light.

 

Topic

In the autumn term, our topic is called

 ‘BEHIND ENEMY LINES!’

During our topic lessons, we will be learning about World War 1 and 2.

 

Religious Education

In RE we will be exploring different religions and understanding the importance of them.

 

PE kit

Every week children take part in two PE lessons. One of our PE sessions take place on a Monday afternoon and the second takes place on a Friday afternoon. We strongly advise that all children bring both their indoor and outdoor PE kit on a Monday morning and take it home on a Friday for washing.

 

Spellings/Homework

The children will be given new spellings every Thursday. These spellings will be tested the following Wednesday. It is important that the children practise their spellings, so they can use them in their writing. Children need to make sure their homework book is back in school on a Tuesday to ensure it is marked.

 

Water bottles

We recommend that all children have a water bottle in school every day, so that they can keep hydrated throughout the day. We have a designated area in the classroom where we keep our water bottles and can fill them up at the water fountain in our shared area, at appropriate times. You can purchase a school water bottle from the office or use an alternative bottle. It would be really useful if you can make sure that your child's full name is on the bottle, in case we have more than one of the same bottle.

 

Fruit for break time

We would also like to remind you that the children are more than welcome to bring their own fruit for break time. However we must stress that they can only bring fruit, as we are a healthy school.

 

Thank you

Miss Jackson and Mrs Stent
