Welcome to Year 6

 Our 2021-22 curriculum map can be found here:

Year 6 2021-22

We use our CLIC values to help us to learn to the best of our ability. We believe that every child has the right-

CLICC– to be a confident communicator

L– to learn

I– to improve their health

C– to be part of a community

At Netley Abbey Junior School, these ideas underpin all of our learning. With this in mind, please take some time to see what we have been up to in class.

If you would like any further information about our curriculum, please feel free to talk to our class teachers in the first instance who should be able to answer any queries. After talking to the class teacher, if there are any further enquires, they can be directed toward our head teacher.

Homework help

 

Please see the link on key grammatical terms that your child will be learning about.

A Parents Guide to Grammar

At Netley Abbey Junior School, we use the ‘VIPERS’ to help us answer questions about the books that we read. Your child should know all about these in Year 6, but here is a link with questions that you might like to use at home when reading with your child.

Reading VIPERS for parent

Beach – Miss Blundell

Heath – Mr Wakeford

Sellwood – Miss Whittlesea and Mrs Green

We would like children to have their PE kit in school every day, however, we understand that they do need washing. P.E. kits will be sent home at the end of each term. 

PEOur PE days are-

Heath: Wednesday and Thursday

Beach: Tuesday and Thursday

Sellwood: Monday and Tuesday

 

Please ensure your child has trainers in school at all times, for the Daily Mile.

Homework is always given out on a Friday and hand-in day is Wednesday.

All children will receive spellings, English/SPaG and maths homework each week. We would encourage times table learning and lots of reading too. Ask questions about what books your child is reading; about the characters and what they think might happen next, based on what they have read. Reading aloud to an adult will help fluency and understanding.

What have we been learning?

Year 6 have had a fantastic start to the term, with some of us attending Runway’s End and taking part in a range of outdoor activities, whilst others learnt about a number of countries around the world at school.

We look forward to sharing our learning with you soon!
