Welcome to Year 6.
The Year 6 team consists of Ms Fraser, Mr Napier, Mr Wilson-Maher and Mrs Woodward.
PE is on Friday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor), please come to school in the appropriate PE kit. 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.
Homework is in two strands this year, each pupil has a topic book with a range of activities outlined to support the history topic of Invaders. Some weeks there is a directed task, for others, the pupil may choose. Homework is given out on Fridays, please return the book or work on the following Wednesday.
Maths and reading homework will be online as this proved very successful during lockdown, they are a great way to help support the children in embedding their learning and catching up on any areas they feel less confident in.
Each pupil has a Reading Plus account, this programme is very effective in improving reading speed, stamina and understanding. This should be accessed for homework for at least two twenty minute sessions.
MyMaths homework will support the work carried out in class, each child has their own password and user name. The homework task will be available when they log on.
All the online programmes provide information on individuals' access, strengths and areas to develop, enabling the teacher to effectively support pupils in class.
For those pupils unable to access the online programmes or who would like some additional guidance, Ms Fraser and Mr Napier will host a drop in homework club during Tuesday lunchtime.
The children also have access to TTRock stars for fun times table work.
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 diary.
Each Year 6 pupil is provided with a diary and record book to develop organisational skills. Children will make notes of up coming events, resources needed, timetables etc, it is also a good starting point for chatting with your child about their day in school.

See below for links to the Oak Academy related curriculum which matches our own as much as possible.
This timetable shows a 'normal' week, there may be changes for trips or block work.
Year 6 have taken part in three very exciting curriculum enhancement days at Stanley HS, Birkdale HS and Greenbank. Subjects have included; PE, history, geography, art, D&T, French, German and more! The pupils have been superb ambassadors for Linaker Primary. Here is an extract from an email received today from a teacher at Greenbank.
I hope that you all returned safely. Ms Fraser it was an absolute pleasure to see you and meet your wonderful students. Your students had fantastic prior knowledge and they are brilliant young ladies; they are a credit to you.
Well done Year 6 girls.
