Year 6 Autumn 1 Curriculum Overview

Reading

Children are expected to read at home every night, approximately 10 pages per day is suitable for a Year 6 child. A section in their reading record should be completed each night and brought into school on Friday to be monitored. Upon completion of their book, the children can access an Accelerated Reader quiz. If they do well on their quiz, the number of words they have read is added to their total and they can quickly progress through our 'Word Clubs'. 

We hope everyone can be in at least the 100,000 word club by the end of Year 6.

Take a look into the middle pages of our reading records - they contain lots of useful spelling and grammar hints and tips, including the statutory year 5 and 6 spelling words. 

Reading is an essential activity to support  your child's learning and they should be reading as widely and as often as possible. Please do not underestimate the importance of reading to your children too, regardless of your child's competence in reading as this provides a great opportunity for you to chat about books and extend your child's vocabulary

Spellings 

In Year 5 and 6, we are working towards the Y5 and 6 spelling list. To achieve this we are using Read, Write, Inc Spelling daily. Spellings set out in the National Curriculum are taught progressively over Years 5 and 6.

Please see below the Year 5  and 6 spelling list, as set out by the National Curriculum: 

EMBEDDED_PDF_{/docs/t2-e-2599-statutory-spellings-year-5-and-6-word-mat-_ver_6.pdf} Homework

Maths and grammar homework will be given out on a Monday and needs to be returned on Friday to be marked together in class. 

Times Tables Rock Stars 

Being able to recall our times tables facts quickly and accurately is a hugely important skill. To help us, we regularly use Times Tables Rock Stars in school and encourage the children to continue to practise at home. There are different rock statuses the children can achieve and we hope that everyone can be a Rock Star or Rock Legend by the end of Year 6.

Rock Status:

  •   Rock Hero (average speed of less than 1 second per question) 
  • Rock Legends (average speed of less than 2 seconds per question) 
  • Rock Stars (average speed between 2 and 3 seconds per question) 

PE

PE takes place every Thursday and this half term we are focusing on Gymnastics Please ensure your child comes to school in a full school PE kit on this day: 

  • Plain white t-shirt/polo
  • Black or navy shorts/leggings/skort
  • Red school jumper/cardigan
  • Trainers/pumps
  • Optional navy tracksuit

Please note: Football kits and branded sportswear is not acceptable PE kit. If your child is not in the correct PE kit, they will be loaned a freshly laundered item from school as per our uniform policy. Full details  can be found by clicking this link: School Uniform

Clubs

At Christ Church, we aim to offer an array of clubs and activities for our pupils. All information regarding clubs is relayed to parents via SIMS InTouch allowing you the opportunity to sign your child up instantly. All clubs are free of charge but may be limited by numbers. 

In Autumn 2, Year 6 extra-curricular clubs are: 

  • Tuesday: Basketball (3:30pm - 4:30pm)
  • Wednesday: Reading Club (lunchtime)
  • Thursday: Choir (lunchtime)
  • Thursday: Football Club (3:30pm - 4:30pm)

Homework

Every child is expected to read on a daily basis at home  and mathematics and grammar homework will also be set every Monday and is expected to be returned to school no later than Friday morning to be marked together. A homework club takes place each Wednesday and Friday for children who do not return their homework or who would rather do their homework in school.

Times Tables Rock Stars and Hit the Button should also be accessed to support your child’s learning and progress. In your child's bookbag you will find a list of logins to these websites, if you require a new list please see Mrs Scullion. Useful links will also be sent each half term on the class curriculum overview.

Help at Home

Parental support is really beneficial and there are many ways you can help your child with their learning. Please encourage your child to read at least ten pages of their book every night; complete any homework that is set and to practise their spellings and basic number facts on Times Tables Rock Stars or Hit the Button. 

At the start of the school year, each child is provided with a card containing their log-in details for useful websites/apps that are used in school to support learning. We strongly encourage your child to access these learning platforms at home as much as possible in order to develop their basic skills. Each week in Celebration Worship, certificates are awarded to children to reflect their progress, engagement and effort.
