Home Learning Timetable - January 2021
Please see above, the timetable for home learning that is in place from January. My letter sent home which contains further details of how the meetings will proceed, can be downloaded HERE.The English and Maths sessions will be added to TEAMS the night before so they are available each morning. Maths answers will be available from the beginning of the day so, as soon as the work has been completed, you can mark it and then post a picture online. As I will be in school every Monday, I will not be available to meet on a TEAMS call, therefore thematic learning for the afternoon will be provided. Additionally, there will be a homework style – my choice grid added onto TEAMS on the Thematic Learning Channel, which will give ideas for independent projects linked to Ancient Egypt (which would have been our topic this term!).
Welcome To Taruca Class - September 2020
Year 6 is the final chapter in the journey through primary school. It’s going to be a great year, despite the changes to our normal school routines.
In Taruca, children are expected to work hard and support each other throughout. The children will be given many opportunities to develop their understanding including staying after school for fun tutoring sessions (these will be organised after every assessment point and letters will be sent out to those invited). Our themes for learning across the year are Ancient Greece – Athens V Sparta, WWII – Journeys and The Nile and we have lots of exciting learning planned.
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. All books that are brought back to school will be ‘quarantined’ before being put back onto the shelf for someone else to read. No home books are to be brought in at this time. The children are also expected to use the school apps for their 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. All logins have been sent home with the children. Links to these sites can also be found on our Homework page of the school website - click on the link below to go directly to it.
PE days for Term 1 are on Mondays (Inspire+) and Fridays (Mr Togher). On PE days pupils will need to come to school in their school PE kit. Any changes to this will be communicated through ParentMail so please keep a look out for any emails.
