Year 6 are thoroughly immersed in their learning on World War 2. At the beginning of term, they visited the Coventry Transport Museum and The Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, experiencing World War 2 workshops. Then, they enjoyed a World War 2 day at school, dressing up, baking ration rock cakes and exploring the school’s underground shelter, now the boiler room!
PE is on a Tuesday and Thursday. Until further notice, PE kit will not be required. Instead, we would ask all children to wear trainers as suitable footwear ready for physical education activities. This is to ensure minimal belongings are moving between home and school.
Children should bring in a water bottle which they have access to in the classroom.
Children have been given a new reading folder and diary; this should be in school on a daily basis as volunteers may hear children read at any time.
In Year 6, it is essential that children complete homework tasks to support their learning in class and to prepare them for secondary school.
Monday – fortnightly home learning project in for the following Thursday.
Thursday – numeracy tasks will be set from the children’s own CPG books and will be marked in class on the following Thursday.
Friday – weekly SPaG Homework.
Friday – the children have a spelling test every Friday. They MUST have their yellow books in school on a Friday to receive their new spelling for the following week.
Reading – children are expected to read at least 3 times a week at home. Please record any reading in their reading diary.
