Welcome to the Autumn Term!
Children in year 6 have been reading the book 'Holes' by Louis Sachar. They have been using this text to aid them in their learning across a range of subjects. So far we have written diary entries in the style of the main character, written a play script, predicted what will happen next in the story and created our very own Louis Sachar-inspired character for our own story!
We have also been learning about LIGHT: the way it moves and how it is created.
We will also be doing some shadow puppetry as part of our work on light!
Children will have home learning much more regularly in Year 6. This is to prepare them for home learning routines they will have in secondary school. It is very important that every child reads for half an hour daily. Children will also be given word activities or spelling investigations to complete. It would be very helpful for them to have a dictionary at home. Maths home learning should be completed every day.
Home learning is also set on Education City (which can be found at www.educationcity.co.uk) - all Year 6 children have their own log in details.
P.E takes place on Wednesday and Friday. Indoor P.E. will be on Wednesday; outdoor P.E. is on Friday.
Children need to come prepared with appropriate P.E. kit. - without it, they will not be able to take part and will miss out on their learning in P.E.
Your child will develop their understanding of the concept of risk and how to consider ways of responding to physical, social and emotional risk. They will learn about positive and negative consequences of taking risks in situations which might be physically, socially or emotionally risky. They will consider that some situations contain a range of risks and learn how to evaluate these situations. They will discuss situations where they have responsibility for their own safety, as well as those where they might need help from an adult. They will explore strategies to reduce risk, including the ‘Stop, Decide, Do’ strategy, and practise using them. They will discuss where pressure might come from in a risky situation and how to cope with this. They will be involved in the process of Risk Benefit Assessment, for example when planning for a school trip or outdoor activity. They will revisit their ‘Networks of Support’ which they will have developed earlier in the year and consider when they might need to approach an adult for support and how they might get their attention. They will also learn about organisations which might provide help and support. They will consider supportive responses when someone shares a problem with them. They will learn about the main places where accidents happen, reasons for them and ways of preventing or reducing them. They will learn about and practise some basic first aid procedures and learn how to make an emergency call.
