Mrs Comerford and Mrs Dermody
As we have moved into the second half of the Spring term, the hard work and fun has continued! Year Six have enjoyed all aspects of the curriculum and here are some of our highlights so far: we wrote some creative poems in English lessons inspired by our beautiful city of Manchester; started our topic in history, learning about how WWII impacted Manchester; tackled tricky reasoning problems in maths and most recently enjoyed raising money (and our pulses!) as we took part in Sport Relief 2020 .
Please follow our class Twitter page for daily updates.
Please also see the Year 6 Medium Term Plan found in the important documents part of the webpage to gain an insight on aspects of the Broadoak Backpack that will be studied this half term.

Year 6 Medium Term Plan:
Year 6 Parent Curriculum Meeting:
Class Dojo: Children can earn 'dojo points' for any number of positive reasons; such as following the Golden Rules, participating, being on task or working hard.
Star of the day: Each day a child will be chosen for 'star of the day', for working hard that day. Star of the day is worth 5 extra Dojo points!
Star of the week: Each week, 4 children are chosen for 'star of the week' for working hard that week. The award is given in assembly every Friday afternoon.
Fun Friday: On the last Friday of every half term, children will take part in a curriculum enhancement day. Activities such as craft, sport etc will be planned for the children to participate in.
Year Six Reward Time: Each week, pupils who have received positive feedback on their Communication Cards will participate in an activity of their choice. This reward time will take place on a Friday afternoon and will include activities such as mindfulness, film club, sporting activities and manga drawing.
Homework: Homework is handed out every Wednesday and will have an English and Mathematics focus. Please ensure homework is handed in on the following Monday to ensure that it can be discussed and marked in class.
Spellings: Each week a spelling focus will be shared via our spelling book. These may include spelling patterns, spellings rules or words selected from the Y5/Y6 key word lists. Please look out for any words containing the weekly focus when reading with your child. Please also ensure that your child has completed their weekly spelling assignment on Spelling Shed.
Reading: It is important that the children read on a daily basis. In Year Six, we encourage the children to choose appealing, high quality texts. There are a range of texts available for your child to choose within the class library. Please ask your children questions about what they are reading, encourage them to make predictions and to summarise what they have read. Please ensure that you sign the reading record each time your child reads.
Times Tables: Please ensure that you encourage your child to log onto Times Table Rock Stars and complete their weekly assignment.
