Welcome to the section of the website all about the final year of the Junior School. It’s a wonderful year to teach because the children retain a sense of wonder and joy in their world but have grown a passion for changing things and for making a positive contribution to the lives of others and to life on this planet. Through our curriculum in Year Six and through our teaching about Rights and Respect, we believe that we help the children to become ready to take their place as Global Citizens and to be ready as individuals for the next step in their personal lives, namely the transfer from Primary to Secondary school.
On Tuesday (19th November 2019), Year 6 were fascinated to find that there’s more to Basingstoke than meets the eye!
They explored a range of maps and pictures both at the Willis Museum and at the Basingstoke Discovery Centre and were astounded to learn about the famous visitors and inhabitants past and present, not to mention gaining an insight into how their home town had changed from its first appearance in the Domesday Book to its modern-day bustling community. Walking around the town, they were able to see how the architecture told the history of the town and enjoyed taking rubbings from the Triumphal Gates.
All in all, Year 6 had a great day of learning and were still curious enough to ask more questions on their return!
Our Year 6 pupils have been busy writing some wonderfully emotive war poetry. Some children will be sharing their poems during our Remembrance Assembly on Monday. A selection of their writing is also on display at Tesco – please take the time to read it as you go by.
Year Six Homework
Grammar Spelling Bug – learning and practice. This should not take you long and you can split it over a few days. The website will remember where you stop each time and it will tell us how brilliantly you are doing. www.bugclub.co.uk
Spelling Shed – There is a list ready for you to practise and play. This should take around 15 mins each day. https://play.spellingshed.com. If you have a personal list from Mrs Nash then you will see that as well as the main list. It will be great if you do both.
Maths – Times Tables practice using Times Table Rockstars https://ttrockstars.com/
Reading – 15 mins reading and discussing with an adult at least three times a week and then reading by yourself the other four days.
That should keep you busy and enjoying your learning. Remember that you can also use www.mymaths.co.uk for any DELIBERATE PRACTICE if there are things you want to improve upon or gain more confidence with before we look at them in class.
