Homework set 13th January 2022
SPAG homework this week - pages 4,5,6 and 7 and also pages 36 and 37. Please do not spend longer than 40 minutes on this homework.
The SPAG homework should be brought back into school on or by Thursday 20th January as we may be using the books at revision club next week.
The exercise books in the plastic wallet are for the termly grid homework, if you decide to complete a written task. The books should help to keep everything in 1 place! Work can be stuck into these books or written directly into. I do not need the exercise books returned every Thursday, however, you may wish to keep the homework books together in the one place.
Thank you for your support,
Homework Spring 2022
Please find below the homework grid for this term. A hard copy has also come home with the class today. The children can choose 3 of the tasks to complete this half term and 3 for the next. They will be given an exercise book to complete their homework in on Thursday, although they could get started (if they are keen) and stick any work into their book once they've received it.
In addition to the homework grid, the class will also be set a weekly activity from one of the CGP revision books, which will be set every Thursday. They will be given the CGP books on Thursday as they may also be used in the revision club on Thursday after school. If you are yet to sign up for the revision club, please could you drop the office an email asap to confirm your child's attendance, so that we can plan accordingly.

We've had a great first week back in the classroom. I've been really impressed with the children's attitude to their learning and engagement. We have started some literacy work around 'The Christmas Truce' film - the WW1, Christmas Day football game which happened in 1914. This links in with our topic for this term which is World War. We have also started some work on decimals in maths and multiplying and dividing decimals by 10,100 and 1000. Friday was a cold but dry day on the forest, with flasks and flasks of hot chocolate, squirty cream and marshmallows! I think that we were all glad to be home at the end of the day and defrost!
Wishing all of Sapphire Class and their parents and carers a Happy New Year from the Year 6 Team. Thank you for all your generous Christmas gifts and cards and we look forward to seeing the children again on Tuesday. Have a restful weekend! Best wishes, Mrs Wells
Another week has whizzed by and I have been so impressed at how quickly the class have settled back into school and into the routines of Year 6.
We have worked our way through place value, addition and subtraction in maths and will be starting multiplication next week. (I have set a Maths Shed times tables assignment to get some practice in - having the times tables knowledge will really, really help the class to get the most out of their learning, so please practice at home if you can).
In literacy, we have started looking at Floodland by Marcus Sedgewick and the class have been exploring the character of the main character, Zoe, and had a go at writing some suspense writing.
Have a restful weekend, and I look forward to seeing the class on Monday.
Ashdown photos below don't really capture what a great day we all had. We were also all very jealous of the hot chocolate (especially as it came with marshmallows and cream!)

It was lovely to see so many of you in person this morning and 'Zooming' in for our 'Meet the Teacher'. Attached is the PowerPoint. Also attached are this terms topic web, a welcome letter and a guide for Spelling Shed for your information.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Hello, Year 6 parents and carers!
It is so wonderful to be back and starting a new year in school! I hope you all had a fantastic summer and have enjoyed a well-deserved rest. The children have returned to school with lots of enthusiasm and smiles and seem to have settled quickly into our routines.
There will be a 'meet the teacher' session tomorrow on 9th September at 9:15am, which will give more details about the term to come. This will be online as well in person (technology permitting ) and I look forward to meeting you in this session. I will upload the brief PowerPoint to the class webpage following the meeting.
Should you have any questions or need to contact myself or Mrs Hare, please don't hesitate to email the office, use the contact option below or pop a note in the reading diary (they will be with you shortly).
I look forward to working with all your children and guiding them through their last year at Dormansland.
