CPlkA warm welcome to 6J’s class page
We are a class of 22 children consisting of 12 different first
languages. We are proud of our diversity and differences, and we
are delighted that our classroom community is built upon different
cultures and beliefs. We think it is brilliant that we are a class that
have come from countries all around the world. Some of these
include: Slovakia, Portugal, Bulgaria, Romania, Nigeria, China, Poland, Syria and Italy!
We begin our school day with Reading Plus and/or Assembly, and finish with a
read of our class novel. In between, we have a busy day of exciting
learning through engaging and creative activities. We display
examples of our work on our Twitter page @kensingprimary Make
sure that you look out for our latest tweets #6J
In year 6, there is a clear expectation that children read at least 5
times a week. We understand that weekends are a busy time for
families, however a little amount of reading every day, adds up to a
lot! Children should be encouraged at home to write into their
reading diaries when they have read. Children are asked not to write
‘read’, but make comments on what they have read. Examples of
questions to answer include: what emotions the character may be
feeling; a prediction of what could happen next; how the setting has
been described by the author and questions they would ask the
characters in order to find out information.
Homework will be set on a Friday, and is due the following Friday.
Homework that will be set will include a range of different activities
that link to our learning from the week. Additionally, weekly spellings
will be given with a test given the following Friday. Your children
have been sent their TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed log-ins, to
access from home. Children are expected to log-in regularly and
practise developing these key skills (multiplication knowledge and
spelling). As mentioned, daily reading is a part of set homework.
P.E lessons are on a Thursday. Please provide a white t-shirt and navy/black shorts. Children can wear jogging bottoms/leggings, and their school
jumper (weather depending). Football kits are NOT allowed.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss any
questions that you may have. Appointments for telephone conversations can be made
via the school office.
