Year 6

Highlight of the week

In Science, we extracted DNA from a banana and then learned how the same process was used to identify Richard III.  It was really interesting.

Supporting your child at home

Spelling tests will take place each Monday.

Please read 3 times each week - as a minimum and record this in your reading diary marked with a capital letter H in a circle so that home reading is clearly identifiable.

Homework Expectations – Year 6 Homework will be set every Wednesday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Pupils are expected to complete every set task. Generally, homework will be one piece of written work or a worksheet and a set of spellings to learn.

Additionally, children must read and record their reading in their diaries at least three times each week. Updates on what we have been doing can be found on the Y6 class and on ClassDojo.  Work in books is expected to be of the same standard as work in school, with neat handwriting, diagrams in pencil and care take to include appropriate punctuation and good spelling. 

 House points will be awarded for good work each week.
