Our PE days are Wednesday & Thursday this term!

Thursday are going to be our swimming slots, so children need to attend school in their PE Kit and bring their swimming kits in separately.

Children need to come into school in their PE kits for their Wednesday PE sessions.

If children have a sporting club after school they should come to school in their school uniform bringing their PE kit in a bag to change into at the end of the school day.

Year 6’s Humanities topic units for this year are: 

Geography History
Autumn Term Rainforests The Mayan Civilisation
Spring Term Protecting The Environment The Ancient Greeks
Summer Term Our World In The Future The World Wars

Supporting your child’s learning at home

Please read with your child at home on a regular basis. It is important to listen to them read and then discuss the story and language with your child. Ask them questions about the setting and the characters, perhaps they could predict what might happen next and check they understand the meaning of challenging vocabulary. A good place to start when looking for a new book to enjoy is our Brill School Year 6 recommended book list.

At school, your child will undertake daily Wizard Maths sessions, which seek to strengthen their times tables and arithmetic ability. Extra times tables practice at home would be hugely beneficial. There are some useful links below for you to use.
