Above is the White Rose long Term plan for our Year 6 Maths curriculum coverage. This plan will be adapted to fit the pupil's needs. It is therefore a guideline to enable you to support your child at home with their Maths learning. We will also be completing Rainbow Recall challanges twice per week. Please feel free to ask for additional copies of the weekly challenges. 
 

A quick reminder that PE kit should consist of the following:  Indoor PE kit: White t-shirt and blue shorts. Outdoor PE kit: White t shirt, navy/black jogging bottoms and jumper, suitable trainers 

The Year 6 Summer term newsletter will be handed out to children at the beginning of term and is also on a link below. 
Reading and Spelling 
 
A polite reminder that we request you to read with your child at least once per week and sign their 'Reading Record'. 
 
Your child will receive weekly spellings these will usually be handed out on a Monday and tested the following Monday. 
 
Regular short periods of practice of spellings will ensure the spelling rules and patterns are embedded.  
 
Reading is an essential life -skill. Reading regularly with you child and discussing the text is incredibly helpful. Exposure to both non-fiction and fiction texts helps to support your child's learning. If you would like a list of prompting question to aid discussion with your child about their reading please do not hesitate to ask.
