Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 at Andrews’ Endowed. Here, we believe in learning through doing, having a strong growth mindset and working hard to reach our potential. We believe strongly that the love of learning, having courage in everything we do and respecting ourselves, others and our property are life long attributes. Our teacher is Mr Paine and our teaching assistant is Mrs Copplestone. As well as French on Tuesday afternoons, Madame Mylward also teaches us Music and RE on Thursday afternoons.

Please take a look at what we will be learning this Autumn in our curriculum documents.

Monday 2nd November 2020 – Topic letter to parents

 

I really like this school because you don’t need to worry about getting a question wrong. This has propelled me through my maths, they come up with a way, rhyme or song. The teachers make me feel like I can say what I think.

In Year 6 we have the Chrome books for our computing lessons every Wednesday. We once learnt about GIFs and even did some of our own pixel art. These were all extremely fun. We have our own accounts and passwords and it is a good way to hand homework and other things in.

It is very fun being in Year 6 as we have a very warm and welcoming classroom. Although we have had to do things a bit differently this year, we still enjoying our learning and friends.

Our Curriculum

I have been going to Andrews’ Endowed for the last 6 years. This is my 7th year at this school and even though I’ve only been in Year 6 for the last 3 weeks I have already learned a lot. I am enjoying Year 6 because although things have changed I can still learn a lot and still have fun.

Being in Year 6 is so exciting and tricky! Our current topic is Ancient Benin and we’ve been doing lots of research on Benin City in history, including looking at their beliefs and the names of the main people in their civilisation. We have been making clay animal sculptures in Art this term and a colourful mural for homework as well!

Although I joined the school later, being at Andrews’ Endowed Primary has given me the opportunity to make great friends and join new lunchtime clubs such as sketching, chess, origami, gardening, drama and dance. I particularly like being here because the teachers are kind, welcoming, funny and clever.

Homework

Below you will find details of Weekly Homework Expectations, and the arrangements for setting and submitting homework.

We heartily thank parents and carers for their support with homework – it really does make a difference to your child’s progress!

Weekly Homework expectations in Year 6:- 

Spelling

A spelling list is sent home each week and is posted on Google Classroom.  Please practise these at least twice (or as often as necessary) before they are tested in school each week.

Reading

Children should aim to read for at least 15 mins daily – an ideal wind-down activity before sleep and quality time spent with Parents and Carers! Please complete the reading diary (either on Google Classroom or their Paper copy) each time they read, with the title of the book and the page they have reached. 

English/Topic

English and topic homework is set on Google Classroom (Under the homework section) – and this is also where your child should upload homework documents or photos for marking.

Maths

Maths homework will alternate weekly between paper copies of work and tasks set on Mathletics. Worksheets will be given to children in school, and there will be copies of the work and answers on classroom.
