Welcome To Taruca Class - September 2021
Welcome to Year 6 - the last year of primary school – let’s make it great!
As we get back to normality we are excited to do the ‘normal’ things we have missed in school. We have already been enjoying being able to all be together in the hall for assembly and are very excited about being able to invite families into school for our Star Achiever’s assembly on Fridays.
In Taruca, children are expected to work hard and support each other throughout. The children will be given many opportunities to deepen their understanding and take control of their own learning. Our themes for learning across the year are The Workhouse, Vikings and The Amazon and we have lots of exciting learning planned as well as engaging experiences to support the children’s learning.
Reading at home is vital and, even in Year 6, it is important to listen to your child read regularly and also share stories together. The children will bring home a class reading book from school and the children will be expected to use their Reading Scrapbook to complete activities to show their understanding of the text. The children are also expected to use the school apps for homework. They should visit Timestables Rockstars and Spelling Shed as often as possible and also have access to Prodigy Maths, Zumos, Epic Reading and Purple Mash. Links to these sites can be found on our Homework page of the school website.
PE days for Term 1 will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We are lucky to have sessions with Inspire+ for the first term and will be focusing on fitness. From Term 2 onwards our PE days will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays. On PE days pupils will need to come to school in their school PE kit. We will aim to do PE outside wherever possible so please ensure your child comes to school in clothes and shoes appropriate for the weather. Any changes to this will be communicated through ParentMail so please keep a look out for any emails.
We will continue to use Teams for home learning and the children will be able to share any work they have completed at home. Please contact me if have any worries or concerns either through the Contact Form below or via Teams.
