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. If pupils are not in correct uniform or footwear, a phone call home will be made, for uniform to be brought into the school. If this fails, children will be given correct uniform or footwear to wear. This is in-line with the uniform policy.
During PE, children will be expected to bring their full correct kit. If they do not, they will be sent down to the office by the teacher for some kit to borrow. From September, we will be taking part in outdoor PE and will be taking part in a fitness module during indoor PE. Exercising and improve our fitness is beneficial to us, as it helps keep our bodies on top form, help the release of important chemicals in our body and helps fit boredom and negative emotions that we may get during a action-packed year.
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. Homework has changed recently. Homework is now set as a project. This is to help pupils love for their work, improved retention and general knowledge and allows pupils to be more connected with their homework. Children will be given a homework book and they have to complete as many as the tasks as they can. There is a range of activities around their topic. This is to give children the choice in what they do and allow all homework to be personal and varied.
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!
From September, the children will be studying a fictional book called The Butterfly Lion, written by the famous Michael Morpurgo. This is a story about friendship, loss, triumph, personal battles and flashbacks. It is a such a gripping, emotional story which left last years Year 6 joyous and saddened. Ask your child about what they have read.
In literacy, we are studying flashbacks. This is a new topic that the children have never covered before - an exciting one too. Our story takes place in the short story called Gone Away by Lou Kuenzler. It's about a young boy who misses his friend and feels guilty that he has found a new one. This is strange considering his former friend used to bully him. During this topic, the children will understand what a flashback is and how to start and end a flashback. This is important as they will be writing their own flashback story soon!
In science, we will be studying light. We will be studying where light comes from, common misunderstandings about light and creating and undertaking investigation to understand light better.
