Miss Geary and Miss Esposito
Hello and welcome to Rother!
Being in Year 6 is an exciting time for our children, as they are reaching the end of their exciting journey at Slinfold CE Primary School. They will have created many memories throughout their time with us and, during this year, they are being prepared to leave us and make smooth transitions into their secondary schools.
Through exploring our web page, you can keep up-to-date with our learning journey, check out our inspiring curriculum and explore subject specific websites to support your children’s learning.
At Slinfold CE Primary School, each class works together to develop a class charter which is based around our behaviour code of Ready, Respectful, Safe. Our charters support our learning, and our pupils are consistenty encouraged to make wise behaviour choices based on those charters.
We upload alternate Maths or English home learning onto Google Classroom or in Homework Books each week. These activities consolidate the learning which has taken place in class that week.
Your child will bring home 5 spelling each week. The purpose of learning these spellings is to put them in the long term memory so your child can recall them when required. Whilst there is no set way for committing spellings to memory, please encourage your child to use one of the spelling strategies on the inside cover of their homework book each week to practise these spellings.
Your child will be working towards one of their times tables. We will ensure this is written in their homework book each week so they are able to practise these at home. Please encourage your child to write them out in order and then out of order each week.
If your child has completed all of their times tables, they will be working on their speed recall, so please encourage them to complete a speed grid each week. Please write the time which it took your child to complete this in next to the grid so we can see how their speed recall is progressing throughout the year.
Your child should bring home their reading record and a book every day. Please encourage your child to read for 15 to 20 minutes each evening to develop their fluency, expression, confidence and an understanding of books. Please encourage your child to record this reading in their reading record. Reading records are collected in every Friday to monitor your child’s reading journey at home.
