Welcome to Year 6
Mr Peal and Miss Jenkins would like to take this opportunity to welcome both you and your child to Year 6. Together with the support of Mrs Marriott and Mrs Scamp they look forward to an enjoyable year.
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome both you and your child to Year 6. Your Year 6 team consists of Miss Jenkins & Mrs Scamp and Mr Peal & Mrs Marriott. We hope to make your child’s last year at Davington as special as possible. Here is some key information:
Due to Covid19, we are unable to use the water fountains around the school. Please ensure that you sent your child in with a water bottle each day.
Break Time Snacks
With the current Covid situation, we are unable to provide break time snacks from the Fruit Café. The children may bring their own fruit which can be kept in their bag until break time.
During the term, the children will be learning skills through a range of sports including tag rugby, netball and basketball. It is more important than ever that the children have their P.E kits in school as they are unable to use any spare kit.
We are currently unable to use the hall for indoor P.E, so where possible we will be doing two outdoor sessions a week. These sessions will be on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. PE kit should stay in school all term as there are occasions when our PE time has to be moved to a different day.
Please ensure children with shoulder length hair or longer have their hair tied back. If your child has pierced ears, their earrings will need to be removed in this session. Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in a suitable bag and labelled clearly with their full name and class.
We have put together a list of suggested activities for four key areas of the currciculum for you to do at home with your child to support their learning. There is no pressure to do every activity; chose the ones that work for you. You do not need to bring any completed work in, if you would like us to see it, simply email a copy/pictures. A Year 6 email account has been created for this.
Daily reading (10 minutes, at least three days a week.)
To support your child in reading you can listen to them read or ask them questions about their book to help them with their understanding of what they have read.
Learn weekly spellings (New spelling words will be brought home every other Friday –two weeks worth- for a test every Friday)
Your child will have 10 or 15 spellings a week that they will practice daily at school. However, further parental support with spelling words out loud or written on paper will be beneficial to your child.
Keep practising your times tables, remember that you have 1 minute to answer all questions to achieve your T Team. TT rockstars is a great website to practice independently.
