Homework

All your child’s homework can be found on Showbie in the green homework folder.

Task Homework – This is a task that the children will need to complete. This will be linked to prior learning or to support the children in their learning for that week.

Often the task homework will be something for you to do (a task) or to talk through rather than written work that needs handing in. However, if is does need handing in, it can be submitted in a variety of ways depending on what suits the tasks. You can choose how you would like to submit it.

  • Children can complete the homework on paper and hand a physical copy in to the teacher (if they are not isolating), alternatively they can take a photograph of their work and upload it to Showbie.
  • The could also complete their homework on Showbie using the annotation tools.
  • They could use different software e.g. MS Word, PowerPoint etc and upload the document from their computer to Showbie.

Just talk – This will be sent home on a Monday for the children to talk about. The children will complete their Just Write on a Friday during our assessment morning.

Spellings – Each child will be set new spellings on a Friday. These words will be linked to the phonics sounds that the children will be covering during their phonics lessons the following week. The children will complete the spelling quiz (test) the following Friday during our assessment morning.

MyMaths – Children will be set a new MyMaths challenge each Friday.

Reading – Ideally, we would like the children to be reading regularly at home.

The Year 6 Curriculum

Below you can find a link to key documents which will give you as a parent or carer an overview of what our Year 6 pupils will be learning this year and the skills that they will need to develop.

Click here to find out more about each topic and, as ever, if you have any questions about your child’s learning then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Routines

KS2 children can go to their classrooms from 8:30am with registration starting at 8.40am.

We would ask that you encourage your child to be independent when coming into school. It is very important for your child’s development for them to be able to take responsibility for themselves and their own property.

At the end of the day, Year 6 children will leave at 3pm. We ask parents to allow their children a greater degree of independence and walk or cycle to and from school on their own or, if not possible, drop off and pick up away from school. Parents will not be permitted on the yard.

If you wish to make an appointment to see the teachers, this can be arranged at a mutually convenient time.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any member of the Key Stage 2 team.

PE Day

Our PE day is on a Thursday.

Your child should come to school in the following kit:

Black shorts / plain black tracksuit bottoms / black leggings
Team colour t-shirt with embroidered Bowerham Rose
Trainers or pumps
School jumper or Y6 hoody
No jewellery
