About Y6

R.E Topic - The Kingdom of God.

“The Kingdom belongs to the poor and lowly, which means those who have accepted it with humble hearts."  Religious Educatoin Curriculum Directory.

The children will:

  • Learn about the kingdom of God and understand that everyone is invited to be part of God's Kingdom.  
  • Understand the words and deeds (actions) that allow us to show our commitment to God's Kingdom.
  • Know that Jesus shows compassion to all who suffer and explore how we can demonstrate compassion towards others.
  • Explore religious figures who helped spread the word about the Kingdom and reflect on what we can learn from them.

Educational Visits:

We enrich our curriculum by arranging the following:

A 5-day residential visit to Oaklands Outdoor Education Centre.

Art days at our feeder school St Mary's Catholic College.

Visits to our parish church Holy Apostles and Martyrs.

Visits to our local theatre the Floral Pavilion.

Sports competitions at local schools. 

Reminders

Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.

Please label ALL clothing and belongings.

Physical Education (PE)

Our P.E day is Monday, please ensure your child has the appropriate kit on these days. All children should have a white t-shirt, black/navy shorts and black pumps. For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.

Homework

English homework will be sent out on Tuesday and returned by the following Monday. Maths homework will be sent out on Thursday for the following Wednesday. It is used to consolidate your child’s learning from that week. Please allow and encourage your child to attempt their homework independently before supporting them if required.

Mathletics

Your child has been given homework on the online mathletics platform. We have demonstrated how to get to the work in class, and have provided each child with login details. The login page can be accessed by following this link.

Reading

The children are expected to read independently at home on a regular basis (15 minutes per night). They should keep a record in their diary of what they have read. Please listen to them read out loud once a week and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.

Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 spellings. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class and then sent home.
