Spring 1 - Natural Disasters
Our topic for the first half of the Autumn Term is 'Natural Disasters'. We will be focusing on using a wide range of skills from across the curriculum to support our learning, and will be aiming to get out to learn about our topic.
We will be using a range of ICT equipment in Year 6, it is important we have the signed consent form for pupils to use their online HWB accounts. please ask your child to get another form if this has not been signed.
It is so important that by Year 6 the children are more confident with their times tables. They are used daily in some way or other and your child will benefit greatly if they are encouraged to practise them regularly so they have a quick recall of facts. This can be done through writing them down, chanting them or playing games! There are lots of great games online that your child could benefit from. One of my favourite is Hit the Button created by Top Marks.
Try it for yourself!
Our topic for the Autumn term is 'Trefnu Gweithgareddau (Arranging Activities)'
We will be doing lots of work and challenging ourselves to use lots of past tenses and 3rd person sentences. Gwaith anodd!
We use Welsh as part of all our lessons and throughout the day, not just in Welsh lessons. The children love playing a range of games during the daily 'Helpwr Heddiw' sessions. Please see some of the sentences patterns below that we will be using in our lessons.
All children have a school email address and a Hwb account. It would be fantastic if they do any extra work at home, they could then email it to my account and we can share what they've done.
Snack is £1 a week in Key Stage 2. For that your child will receive snack every day.
It is so important that your child wears their school uniform to school every day. It has a number of benefits, such as your child feeling a part of the school community. We have a reward system in school called the VIP of the week (Very Important Pupil). Every class has a new VIP each week and they have earned the right to wear their own clothes to school and sit on the bench during assembly. It is a special week for that child and it is clear for the adults and visitors to the school to see who has been working hard. So, if your child is wearing non-uniform and they are not VIP, it will take away the special reward that the VIP has earned for that week.
P.E. is on Wednesdays. Please ensure your child has PE kit in school so they are able to participate safely. As the weather is changing please make sure your child's PE clothes are suitable to keep them warm if we are working outside.
Homework will be changing in Baden Powell Primary this year. Pupils have been given a 'menu' of actvities. Each week they are to choose one thing from the page to do. This can either be done on their Hwb accounts, on a computer or by hand. If done on the computer completed homework can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org(see homework page below)
Please bring reading books every day! There aren't set days when each child reads, but we try to read as often as possible, so by making sure book bags are in school, your child won't miss any opportunities.
