A Year 6 newsletter was sent home this week, if you did not receive it, there is a copy here.
Welcome to Year 6.
Together we flourish and grow.
The Year 6 team, Ms Fraser, Mrs Kilpatrick, Ms Riley and Mr Tilley, are very excited for the new team!
PE, this term, is on Thursday (gymnastics), please bring the designated school PE kit and take home at half term. Sweatshirts and tracksuit bottoms are recommended as the weather becomes cooler, pumps for indoor PE and trainers for outdoor. Tights are not to be worn and remember to tie hair back and remove earrings.
Each pupil has a Reading Plus account, this programme is very effective in improving reading speed, stamina and understanding. This should be accessed for at least four twenty minute sessions per week to supplement usage in school. Please contact your class teacher if a password reminder is required.
MyMaths is an excellent on-line resource. Each mathematics concept has an age appropriate lesson to support learning. Homework will be set each week, using MyMaths, which will further develop work carried out in class that week.
Pupils will also have a topic homework book. This will include a series of tasks to choose from each week or fortnight. These will be practical or craft tasks.
The children also have access to TTRock stars for fun times table work.
For those pupils unable to access the online programmes or who would like some additional guidance, there will be a drop-in on-line learning session during Tuesday lunchtime.
Reading books are changed each week. Please bring the book back on Fridays and choose a new book on Monday. Don't forget to record the reading in the reading record. It is recommended that pupils read and talk about their books daily.
Should your child have an extended absence, please access the following lesson links to maintain learning habits. Also use the MyMaths lessons and read+ programme.
Maths experts quizzing colleagues about adding and subtracting mixed numbers.
Representatives from Year 6 attended the Eco Centre, along with schools from all over Sefton, to take part in a junior COP27 to discuss climate change, its effects and implications for the future. The conference was carried out just like the adult conference taking place in Egypt at the moment. Pupils delivered presentations on behalf their chosen countries (Linaker represented Bangladesh and Australia) and talked about the problems facing their country currently. A selection of speakers also delivered and pledges were made. An extremely productive day, well done Linaker pupils on their superb behaviour and participation.
These certainly were not 'Hard Times' and with 'Great Expectations', Charles Dickens travelled through time to share readings from 'A Christmas Carol'.
