Cedar Class - Year 6 Key information
Our PE days are Mondays and Fridays and children are expected to take part in all PE lessons. They should come to school in the correct PE kit on these days.
Please ensure that your child comes to school with a named water bottle every day.
Homework will be set via Seesaw at the weekend and unless specified, will be due in the following weekend. Your child should upload their homework to Seesaw by the due date. It is essential for children to get into the habit of completing this regularly on time in preparation for their transition to secondary school.
Additionally, Children are expected to read either to an adult at home or to themselves for at least 15 minutes a day. If your child reads competently to themselves, ask them some questions about the book so that you can see if they have understood what they have read. Discussing different texts with your children will help them to develop their own love of reading.
Logins for Seesaw, MyMaths and TTRockstars can be found inside your child's yellow reading book.
We will be looking at rules around different spelling patterns each week and this page will be updated to show our current spelling pattern.
WB: 9.1.23 - words containing the letter string 'ough'
WB: 16.1.23 - words containing silent letters
You can find more words that fit this spelling pattern and some games to practise them here: https://www.spellzone.com/unit22/page2.cfm
Additionally, children should know how to spell all the KS2 common exception words. These can be found here:

You can test your children on these regularly by choosing a few words (up to 5) and asking them to say, cover, write, check their words. Any that they get wrong they can then practice over a few days before trying again.
