Autumn Term

Welcome back, another new year begins! We hope that you all had a great summer and that lots of fun times were enjoyed.  We have a busy term ahead, one that will be both interesting and fun! 

 

Our Tpopic this term will focus on Shipwrecks and Survival, where the children will be challenged each week to complete a a series of tasks linked to survival or shipwrecked. In the first week we will focus our journey and plan a route, whilst considering the dangers that may occur whilst on the seas!

 

This term we are also fortunate to be given the opportunity to work with UK Military School again, and so each Thursday children will need to come into school dresssed appropriately.

 

 

Reading

Reading remains a main focus for children in year 6 and will be studied in small groups or as a whole class.  Some children will be given a banded book to read at home as chosen by the class teacher, whereas others will bring home a free choice Library Book.  Children may wish to read a book of their own choice from home – which is fine.  

 

As with every year group in St. John Fisher, home reading is of high priority and of huge importance.  Our expectation is that every child in class will read with an adult at home at least three times per week.  We will continue to check your child’s home/school reading diary each week, to see your comments and to gain an insight into the great discussion that you are having at home about the texts being read.  A ‘home’ read, in our opinion, should be approximately 10 minutes, of which half of the time should be your child reading (aloud or in their head), and then the remaining time should be spent discussing, questioning and evaluating what has been read.  This aspect of your child’s home learning is incredibly important, and your support is greatly appreciate.

 

At this stage in year 6, an essential part of homework is reading which we expect to continue for at least ten minutes every day.
