Welcome to 6KP's Class Page
Welcome to our class page. On this page, you can find out the exciting adventures that 6KP have been up to recently. In addition, there will be resources and useful information for both parents and children, posted on here. So please take your time to read our page and become digitally connected to our class.
Starting from the Spring term, year 6 will be undertaking SATS revision session. This will take place for 3 lessons a week: Reading, Mathematics and SPaG. This will act as an extra booster towards helping year 6 in enhancing their knowledge and preparation for the test. In 6KP, we have enjoyed ourselves in these sessions. We have been understanding how to: tackle tricky Maths questions, understand what type of questions we have in reading and understanding key elements to grammar and punctuation. Please ask our children on anything new they have learnt.
Monday is when we have outdoor PE, so we need to make sure we bring our full correct kit.
|Tuesday||Tuesday is when we have celebration assembly, so we need to make sure we dress extra smart! This is also the day Upper School need to bank their tokens to Mr Pope.|
|Thursday||Thursday is when we have our homework set, so we need to make sure we collect it.|
|Friday||Friday is when we have golden time, so we need to make sure that we have behaved during the week!|
All pupils are expected to follow the uniform policy and are expected to look smart and presentable around the school, at all time. Black shoes or trainers must be worn to school or other footwear will be presented to pupils.
PE - Monday - Mr Cooper
Homework is sent home to either act as revision for previous topics or consolidation of learning outside of the classroom. Please be involved in your child's learning as much as possible, but please allow them to complete it on their own merit. Children - Your homework is set on Thursday/Friday and is expected back on Tuesday/Wednesday.
Here in 6KP, we believe that reading is not only an important part of learning, but an important part of everyday and future life. To deconstructing instructions, catching a bus, setting up Sky TV from following a cookbook - reading is immersed with everyday life. Reading allows us to become critical and reflective. No one is born a perfect reader, reading takes time, practice and commitment - but it is fun too!
Following on from the wonderful conversations from parents evening, parents were interested in how to help their children at home - especially with reading. Above is a useful page regarding questions to ask your child. Just pick two or three from each section and you're away!
In Maths this term, we are learning and tackling various methods of short and long division. In Maths, efficient knowledge of times tables is massively important. It is involved in: fractions, division, ratio, percentage, algebra and other aspects. If children's time tables are up to speed, they will always improve in other areas of Maths.
A massively fun way of learning your times tables is through Times Table Rockstars. This allows children to practice their times tables in a fun and familiar environment. If you're fed up with your child in front of Fortnite, just throw them infront of TT Rockstars and leave them to it. We are all hooked!
In Maths this term, we have been currently studying multiplying and dividing decimals by integers. e.g 0.4 x 2. We have been understanding how to complete this by multiplying our decimals and then dividing our answer at the end. Parents - please ask us how we do this. This brings us onto our next topic of measurement. We will be practically measuring equipment and containers for fluid and will be converting these into different units. This links will with our previous topic of decimals, as we will be multiplying and dividing to convert centimeters into millimeters and centimeters into meters and so on.
In QFR this term, we are reading Skellig by David Almond. This book is a well known book in children's - and even adults - literature. This book has been adapted for the stage and the TV screen. In this book, the main character is a boy called Michael. Michael has just moved into a new house and has a huge suprise when he finds a crippled living being in is new but crumbling garage. Please ask out children what they know about this book so far!
