Y6 Homework 

Children will continue to be expected to read, learn spellings and practise their fluency in maths. However, when they reach Year 6, they will be given a mix of ‘Home learning’ half termly sheets, similar to Years 3-5, and more formal weekly homework tasks, more in line with what they may expect in Year 7. Mayhill works closely with Robert Mays to achieve this.

 

Examples of this might include home revision packs during a holiday period, reviewing SATs papers or specific grammar or maths exercises to support your child in retaining key skills. Children are not required to have their reading signed daily unless directed by their class teacher. Homework will continue to be set through to the end of term.

For more detailed information, see the Home Learning Policy on our 'Policies' page.

    The year group have loved using the wall bars and gymnastic equipment to work on 'counter balances' and 'counter tension' 

    As you can see from these photos the children in 6M are experts already! 

    Can you spot the gymnastic shapes that we've been learning about in previous lessons?

  • Learning about the Holocaust

    Published 28/04/21, by Mrs McLaughlin

    In English, we have started our Learning Journey based on the book 'Once' by Morris Gleitzman, where we follow the story of a young Jewish boy caught up in the difficult times of the Holocaust. Today was an exciting day within this journey. For so long, we have not been able to welcome any visitors into Year 6 to hook us into a new topic, but today we welcomed Dr Alasdair Richardson from Winchester University to tell us all about how Jewish people lived through the Holocaust.

    Year 6 loved using their detective skills to look at photos, sharing their views about the laws that were thrust upon Jewish communities, as well as using their fantastic inference skills to justify their thoughts - excellent communication skills! 

    It was a fantastic opportunity to ask all the questions we had been eager to answer since starting the book and a great insight into how our book's main character may have lived in Poland at the time of the Holocaust.

    Thank you Alasdair - we look forward to seeing you next year!
