Welcome to Year 6
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 & Mrs Clarke 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:
Please ensure that you send your child in with a water bottle each day.
We are pleased to be able to return to the hall for indoor P.E this year. These sessions will be on Monday (6J) and Tuesday (6P) with oudoor PE for the year group on Wednesday. PE kit should stay in school all term as there are occasions when our PE time has to be moved to a different day. During the term, the children will be learning skills through a range of sports including tag rugby, netball and basketball.
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.
Homework will be sent out weekly on Teams on Fridays. It will be due in the following Thursday. As well as this activity, we encourage the following tasks:
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. If possible, an adult signature in their reading record will help their progress on the reading chart.
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 independent.
School trip- Kent Life
We are delighted that school trips can resume as normal this year. In November, we will be spending the day at Kent Life where the children will immerse themselves in a range of activities based on our topic, World War 2. Further information will be sent out nearer the time.
