Year 6 B - Mrs Killough 2021 - 2022
Hello and welcome to 6B's class page.
I will also use my school Twitter account @Plantationkillo to share general information, homework reminders and important news and updates.
Please click on Curriculum > Learning Maps to see the topics that our children will be learning in the Autumn term.
I am looking forward to a fantastic year with class 6B!
Important information for this school year:
Please ensure your child brings their planner to and from school every day. They will need it to record reading, to write down spelling and accelerated reader quiz scores and to access usernames and passwords for educational websites.
Tuesday - Outdoor PE
Thursday - Indoor PE
On the days that your child has a PE or Games lesson, we ask that they come to school in their PE/Games kit. They will wear this kit for the whole day instead of their uniform.
Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct PE kit with a plain tracksuit and trainers to wear for the whole day. Children should not be attending school in replica sports kits, such as football kits.
For more information regarding the correct P.E kit, please go to: https://www.plantationprimary.com/page/school-uniform-and-dress-code/16776
Water bottles & snacks: Please ensure your child comes to school with a water bottle labelled with their name. Also, if your child wishes to have a snack during break times, it must be one of the following items:
- Plain biscuit
Homework: Every day, your child will be expected to:
- Practise their spellings by using Spelling Shed or any other method (5 minutes)
- Practise their times tables by using Times Table Rockstars or any other method (5 minutes)
- Read their accelerated reading book with an adult or access their reading account on Epic (10 minutes)
- Complete designated assignments on SATS Companion as and when required.
Children can access our class Epic! account using our class code: dju2309
Log in details for the websites above are in your child's planner.
Spellings: The children will be given a new set of spellings to take home and practise each Monday. The spellings will be glued in their planners. They will then be tested on the week's spellings every Friday.
Times Tables: The children will be tested each Tuesday.
Reading: School journals are to be used to record any reading that occurs inside and outside of school. All children should be reading every day at home. The children will be using a reading scheme called 'Accelerated Reading'. This scheme will identify a 'range of scores' for your child and recommend suitable books based on that range. You may think that the books being recommended to your child are 'easy', but this scheme has been designed to quiz your child on their understanding of the content of the book, not the fluency of their reading. Once your child completes their book, they need to bring the book into school and complete the quiz on an iPad in school. They will receive a % score and the scheme will then recommend a new book for them to read. Due to COVID-19, there may be a reduced number of books available to the children to read in school. However, the children can access more books online by accessing their accounts on EPIC and clicking on 'AR'. Alternatively, the children could check on the Accelerated Reading app whether any books that they have at home fit into their 'range of scores' and if so, complete the quizzes available.
I will hear the children read each week as part of reciprocal reading sessions.
Please do not hesitate to contact me via the school office (0151 487 5678) (firstname.lastname@example.org ) if you do not find the information you are looking for or if you have any questions throughout the year.
