Due to the school following guidelines to ensure the safety of the whole school community, communication will be different to what we are used to with parents/carers. If you have any questions or need to pass on information please do not hesitate to contact me via email: jpalmer@loverslane.notts.sch.uk and I will get back to you at the nearest opportunity

Welcome to the Year 6 class page. 

Here you will find all the information you need for this year, along with pictures of the exciting things we are learning about and a contact form to Mrs Palmer.  Mrs Palmer is the class teacher and Mrs Fixter is the teaching assistant. 

Meet the Year 6 Team

w/c 13.9.21 After considering seasonality, using locally grown produce and sustainability we made a seasonal fruit pudding.

w/c 6.9.21 We started our 10 week D.A.R.E (Drugs and alcohol resistance education) programme with a visit from the D.A.R.E officer.

English

Using 'Talk for write' strategies we will be learning and using different story structures to through the year.  This half term, we will be looking at recounts (diaries) inspired by one of the class texts - Stone Age Boy.

Spellings

Each week we build spelling knowledge, using Read Write Inc spellings.  The weekly spellings (Fridge Words) will be sent home each week so they can be practiced at home.

Reading

Each day there will be whole class reading, either in English lessons, other curriculum subjects or as guided reading sessions (focusing on specific comprehension skills)  Please make sure that reading books are in school every day.

Maths

This term we will be learning about the place value of numbers, using different calculation methods and fractions.  Every week children are tested on their multiplication tables, which they can practice at home using Times Table Rock Stars.

Science

This term we will be building on topics studied in previous year groups - light and electricity 

PE

Our PE slots are on Tuesday and Friday afternoons.  Children should come to school wearing their PE kit but wearing a school jumper.

Geography - 'We are going to Victorian Britain'

We are learning about life in Victorian Britain:  what life was like then and how this time period influenced our lives today.  Read more in the knowledge organiser below.

Homework

Homework is given out on a Friday and is to be returned by the following Thursday.
