Purple Mash

Please can I encourage you to sign up for/install Purple Mash at home. Your child can access Purple Mash from home on a laptop, desktop or a tablet. Purple Mash is a safe environment that does not require any downloading or allow interaction with people online and children cannot make any financial transactions. We will be encouraging the children to continue their learning at home and Purple Mash is a great resource for this. Your child will be taught how to use Purple Mash in school and will be able to use it without supervision, but you may want to take a few minutes to explore it yourself so that you can help them with their work. Please click on the picture link to login to Purple Mash.

Note:  You have already had your child’s username and password - please let me know if you need this again.
 
 

Home Learning

Reading

A Year 6 recommended reading list has been posted on Google Classroom. This was a hugely positive feature of last year, with many children discovering new books and authors they would never have previously considered. We would love the children to read books from this list and rate them for other children in the class, but they can – of course – also continue reading books of their own choice outside of this list as well. It is essential that children in Year 6 read regularly, both independently and with an adult at home. Please consider making time for a regular ‘bedtime story’ reading session, if this is not already part of your evening routine!
Each week, there will be a short reading activity to complete on Google Classroom. This could relate to the books the children are reading independently, or to a class text that we have looked at in school. The children will be set a task on a Tuesday and there will be an expectation that it is completed by the following Monday. Please do let us know if you are having any problem accessing Google Classroom so that we can assist you with this.

Spelling

  • Spelling tests will be completed on Fridays, with new words being given out via Google Classroom each week. The first new spellings will be issued on 18th September, with informal tests on previous learning taking place until then.

Mathematics

  • Handed out on Fridays and due back to school on the following Wednesday unless another date is given inside the front cover of the book.

P.E. - Autumn Term First Half

Thursday afternoon (Mrs Barlow) - Hockey
Friday afternoon (Mrs Kipling) - Rounders and athletics
Due to current restrictions in school, PE will be most likely taking place outside, so please make sure your child has a suitable waterproof coat as we will be outside whatever the weather (within reason!) Until further notice, children should arrive in school in their outdoor PE kit every Thursday and Friday.

Snacks

In Key Stage 2, children are allowed to bring in their own fruit or vegetable snack to eat at playtime.  Snacks should be fruit or vegetables – this does not include snacks containing fruit e.g. cereal bars.  School does not provide milk but this can be purchased each half-term via arrangement with the school office.
