Year 6

Welcome to Class 6P and Class 6S

Mrs Taylor

This term I am looking forward to...

Exploring the impact of increasing globalisation on the world around us allowing pupils to develop their passion and interest for protecting our environment. 

My top tip for learning is...

Read every day. Revisit your graphic schema every week. Use Spelling Shed and TT Rockstars for daily practice which will enhance your writing and promote fluent recall of times table facts.

 Miss Extence

This term I am looking forward to...

Using a variety of line and tone techniques to produce a perspective piece of artwork that reflects the impact of globalisation.  

My top tip for learning is...

Ask questions when you are unsure. Challenge yourself. Use your book and learning tools to revisit learning. Explore ideas further and remember to take your learning out of the classroom.

Things about us that are worth remembering

Due to the changeable nature of the weather, pupils must ensure they are wearing a coat every day as we do aim to be outside as much as possible for break and lunchtimes. Classroom equipment is provided for all children, therefore they do not need to bring any stationery from home. 

Spelling tests take place every Monday and new spellings are given out for the following week. Pupils can practise these spellings on Spelling Shed. 

Year 6 have PE on a Wednesday - pupils should come to school in their school PE kit: plain, dark tracksuit bottoms/shorts, a plain white T-shirt (or with a school logo), a plain dark hoody/school jumper and a pair of trainers. 

Reading books are checked daily and changed every Friday. All pupils receive a levelled reading book and a reading for pleasure book. 

Saturday School is a unique, free opportunity for additional tuition to prepare Year 6 pupils for both SATs and their transition to secondary school. This takes place every Saturday between 9:00 and 12:00. This involves a mixture of both academic activities and physical fun. 

Extended day opportunities are available to all with targeted tutoring taking place throughout the week. Please talk to your class teacher if you require further information.

Everyone a Mayflower Reader | Hear Me Become A Reader

There is nothing quite like playing back something that you have rehearsed or performed and just... listening: feeling pride in your successes; noticing the areas for improvement and acting on them. This is what real learning is all about!

'Hear Me Become A Reader' is our way of enabling pupils to journal their reading journey; giving pupils ownership over their development within the subject. With more and more pupils uploading audio readings on a weekly basis, we wanted to make this process more interactive and even easier than ever.

With this in mind, 'Hear Me Become A Reader' has changed platforms - no more weekly assignments or uploading of separate audio files. With Microsoft OneNote, pupils now record and upload on the platform itself, to a confidential section in the 'class notebook' - just between the child and their teacher. What's more, pupils (and parents) can comment under each recording, as well as adding to a 'collaboration space' where pupils can recommend new books to their classmates. There is also a 'content library' containing key reading resources to help equip your child with the tools they may need to become more fluent and comprehensive readers.

The same expectations of a weekly recorded reading will be required as part of your child's home learning diet; but within the class notebook, pupils could easily upload a recording every night of the week if they wanted to (as has been requested by pupils and parents).

If using a laptop or PC, pupils can still access their class notebook via their TEAMS account, or if using a tablet or mobile phone, you can download the Microsoft OneNote APP from your APP store and sign in using your child's MS TEAMS login details (please note it can sometimes take up to 24 hours to sync notebooks).

Have a go and explore the class notebook - the more your child uses it, the more confident they will become at leading their own learning. We can't wait to see how pupils use this new tool to enhance their learning at Mayflower!

Please see the links below, which provide step-by-step instructions in 'logging in' and 'recording your reading'.
