Y6 Homework Hub

Here you will find details of your spelling and times table homework for each week. This will be set on a Friday for testing the following Friday - the current work will always appear at the top so it is easy to find!

Spelling:

 

In our lessons we will revise dictionary meanings enabling us to use each word in the correct context.

During their spelling test children will be given the word, it will then used in context in a sentence and the word repeated once more. 

Times tables

As well as our daily practise sessions, Y6 will be given a specific number or numbers to revise for a week ready for a timed weekly test which will have 90 calculations using both multiplication and division.

There will always be a homework sheet below to help revision for the given number / numbers which can be either viewed or downloaded as a pdf for printing if you wish. 

For testing Friday 16th October

Please take a moment to read our curriculum letter for this term.

AMAZING WORK ALERT!

We've been working hard in Y6 over the last few weeks - take a look at our most recent piece of writing. Using our learning from our Geography topic 'Shackleton's Antarctic', Y6 have written an information text - just like you would find in a children's book about the Antarctic.

 

I am so impressed by the quality and presentation of the work you have completed Y6 - huge well done from me!smiley

 Please find below details of the expected standards for the end of Y6 (KS2) in Maths and English as set out in the National Curriculum. This document will give you a broad overview of our learning in these subjects for this year.

Supporting your child's reading skills at home

Recommended reading for Y6 - how many of these can you tick off this year?

In Y6 we use knowledge organisers to support our learning in some of our subjects. We have them stuck into our subject books or on our desks so that we can refer back to them, use them as a revision tool or to remind ourselves what we need to include in our work eg. writing to meet the expected standards. 

 

History and Geography knowledge organisers will be added before we begin each unit - sorry, no sneak previews Y6!!

Reading – The Ickabog

 

In school this term, we are reading this new book by J.K.Rowling to the children.  We encourage this to be read at home as well so that children can enjoy the story.

 

Alongside this, J.K.Rowling has launched a drawing competition, with different themes for the chapters.  She will be incorporating the winning drawings into a book which she will be selling as a fundraiser to support people affected by Covid.  Information for this is included in the website.

Year 6 help to raise funds for the Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice.

We are very proud of our Year 6 children who heartily sang several Christmas carols today in Bexleyheath Broadway. Even the chill of the cold December air did not damped their enthusiasm. A big thank you to their parents and child minders who ensured the children arrived on time.

Science afternoon with Mr Wald.

Thank you to Mr Wald for coming in to teach Year 6 about forces. The children had an exciting afternoon carrying out various experiments (like bending water) and testing hypotheses. It was fun working out if it was a force moving an object or if it was MAGIC! Of course the children know the right answer...

Mr Wald will be visiting us again on the 16th March to teach the children about electricity!

This term Year 6 will focus on learning about the two world wars. To enhance their learning Mr Daniel, from the Westminster Archives, will present several in-school sessions. The children will have a wonderful opportunity to handle real WW1 and WW2 objects, learn songs from the time period and participate in drama activities.

They will also learn about the fascinating story of Captain Lawrence Jones (son of Rev. Gustave Jones, Vicar of St Paulinus during WW1) on the centenary of his death.

Later in November and December the children will be visiting Horse Guards Parade, Westminister Abbey and the Abbey Centre, where they will learn about particular soldiers and the story behind the Unknown Warrior.  Year 6 will meet author and illustrator Michael Foreman and join in with a short service of remembrance in Westminster Abbey around the Tomb of the Unknown warrior.

Gary and Chris from the MOD Theatre Company, will work for two days with the children to produce an amazing production retelling the story of Wilfred Salmon (an Australian pilot) who fought in WW1 and died at Joyce Green Air Strip - he is buried at Dartford Cemetry. Their performance  will be performed at Hall Place on 30th November, in front of parents, councillors and the Mayor of Bexley!

Year 6 have successfully reached the next round of the Young Mathematicians Quiz!

A great day at Horse Guards Parade and the Abbey Centre watching the play Not Forgotten.

A fantastic day at Townley Grammar learning to code.

What goes on at The Houses of Parliament?

Year 6 have been learning about the history of The Houses of Parliament. They began with a look at the time line of Parliament, picking out important events and researching them using the internet. On Tuesday they learnt about how laws are made and the Queens State Opening of Parliament.

 On Wednesday the children formed political parties, with each party writing their own manifesto and presenting it to the class. Together they debated several issues like:  fox hunting, smoking, and should homework be compulsory? Everyone had a great time which concluded with an election. Congratulation to the DDMRF party who won by a narrow majority.

Year 6 are learning how to play cricket this half term. Thank you to Ben, the cricket coach for his excellent teaching.

Year 6 are challenged to build the tallest tower from newspaper and tape.

Congratulation to our Year 6 children, who have just complete their end of year SATs. They spent Friday celebrating by participating in an orienteering challenge during the morning then having a class party in the afternoon. Well done to all of them for their hard work and concentration throughout the week.

Year 6 Hosts A 1945 Street Party.

 

A fantastic street party took place on Monday 20th October. Thank you to all the guests who helped to make the occasion a memorable event.

Earlier in the day, the children had fun preparing the food and making decorations.

At 2pm guests were welcomed by the children, served a good old fashioned English Cuppa and offered some scrumptious cakes, paste sandwiches, jelly and biscuits. The party continued with a topical sing-along, accompanied by Mrs Davey on the piano (many thanks). This was followed by a game of Bingo (Housey-Housey). Later, guests and children challenged each other to games of conkers and marbles.

The hall decorations were absolutely fantastic, setting the ambience for the occasion. My most grateful thanks go to Mrs Sukonik, Ms Harris and Mrs Hughes, who worked tirelessly throughout the day supporting the children and myself to ensure the party was a great success!
