Navigators 14 is a Year 6 class taught by Mrs Lauderdale.
Hello and welcome to Class 14!
It is great to see everyone back and in the swing of things. Year 6 is a fantastic year group and every pupil is working hard to achieve the best they possibly can.
Start time: 8.30 Main gate
End time: 3.15 Main gate
Monday: Swimming – This takes place on a Monday at Boldon School. Children require a swimsuit, a towel and they must bring a coat.
Tuesday: Rugby – Children need to bring in an outdoor PE kit, which includes joggers/leggings, PE t-shirt, hoody/sweatshirt, trainers.
Thursday: Kickboxing – Children need to bring in an indoor PE kit, which includes PE t-shirt, shorts and trainers.
Reading is extremely important to learning in school and is a fantastic life skill. The majority of Year 6 are free readers, which means they have a choice of a wide variety of books from our Year group library. Children read in school and at home and change them when finished. This year, we have a new Reading Reward Scheme: every time a child has read three times over the week, they will get a sticker for their book mark. If they reach 10 stickers over a term, then they will receive a reward!
Year 6 get homework on Mondays and it is due in on Fridays. A variety of homework will be given throughout the year: GPaS, reading comprehension, maths. These are all key skills that children need extra practise in. Please ensure your child completes all homework tasks. Spellings are given out on Monday to learn over the week and a test is undertaken on Friday. Pupils will also be set tasks on Spelling Shed, Maths Shed and TTRockstars. Codes for these have been handed out to children.
End of Key Stage Assessments (the SATs) take place in May 2022. Government guidelines state at the moment that these SATs will take place in May (see below for dates). We gradually build up the skills needed for these tests to ensure children achieve what they are all capable of. They are a moment in time and do not show the worth of your whole child, so please do not worry.
Our topics for the Autumn 1 half term are as follows:
Maths: Place Value, Four operations and fractions
Literacy: My dad’s a Birdman and The Island
Dimensions Learning Means the World: A World of Bright Ideas
R.E: What can we learn about religious diversity in our area?
What can we find out about a local Muslim community?
French: Everyday life
This year we will be using Class Dojo school-wide as a means of maintaining parent communication and as our whole-school rewards system. I will be posting regular updates to our Class Story throughout the year as well as reminders for parents and pupils.
If you need an invite to join our classroom as a Parent/Guardian please let me know.
Finally, as a class we came up with a Class 14 motto – which I think is perfect!
