6KR

Welcome to 6KR

Teacher: Miss Rigden

LSA: Mrs Fermor

 

What are we learning in the Spring Term?

 

Maths:

 

For each unit below we teach the children how to tackle fluency questions as well as applying their new learnt skills to reasoning and problem solving questions.

 

During lockdown, we covered these subjects in the home learning packs:

- Time and timetables

- Long division

- Graphs and charts

- Fractions of amounts

- Co-ordinates

 

For the rest of the Spring Term, we will be focusing on:

- Units of measurement

- Fractions, decimals and percentages equivalence

- Percentages of amounts

 

We start each maths lesson with 'Can you still?' to recap concepts previously taught.

 

Times tables: the children can practise their times tables at home using Times Table Rockstars. Their log in details are in their reading diaries. We also allow time in school. It is expected that Year 6 children know all their times tables.

 

Writing:

 

During lockdown, we covered these subjects in the home learning packs:

- Descriptive writing (Little Freak)

- Newspaper reports

- Persuasive adverts

- A range of grammar skills

 

For the rest of the Spring Term, we will be focusing on:

- Writing from a different perspective (Jack and the Beanstalk - Rags to Riches)

- Discussion and debate (was Jack good or bad?)

 

Reading:

 

Reading skills are taught every morning. Children may be asked to echo read and then there is a focus on either vocabulary, retrieval inference or deduction. The children have gained confidence with skimming, scanning texts, making margin notes and highlighting key words and phrases. 

 

Spellings:

 

Spellings rules are taught in school every week. They are tested every Wednesday in 6KR and new spellings are given out each Wednesday too.

 

Other Subjects:

 

The children also will have P.E twice a week, music, art, computing and PSHE lessons.

 

6KR have P.E. every Monday and Wednesday - please wear your P.E. kit to school.

 

How can I support my child's learning at home?

 

Homework:

- Spellings (for a weekly spelling test)

- Times tables practice

- Reading every night

 

Accelerated Reader:

The children at Hamp Academy have access to the library daily and are able to pick books from our Accelerated Reader range to read and then take quizzes on. Accelerated Reader gives children, teachers, and librarians feedback based on the quiz results, which the teacher then uses to help your child set goals and direct ongoing reading practice. Children using Accelerated Reader choose their own books to read, rather than having one assigned to them.

 

Contacting Miss Rigden:

 

If you have any questions, queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me in person, via the school office or using Class Dojo.

 

You will find updates about your child and pictures on 6KR's Class Dojo page.
