Welcome to Algeria Class
Welcome to the page of Year 6 - Algeria Class.
OUR TOPIC OUTLINE FOR SPRING 2 2019
This year, Algeria Class have PE timetabled for Thursday and Friday. You will need your kit for these times but it's a good idea to bring your kit in every Monday, leave it in school until Friday and then take it home for a wash. You can leave your kit in school for longer but it's best to take it home regularly to be washed - especially in Year 6. This half term, we will be finishing our Dance unit, starting on Tennis and working on Invasion Games skills.
I will be out of class every Thursday afternoon and Mr Ryan will take Algeria Class during that time for Computing and PE (Games).
This term, our Topic homework focuses on History. You will be asked to plan, research and present your own independent History project focused on a significant year in world events. See homework page for a list of suggested tasks and a timetable to help you organise your independent work.
Weekly Spelling homework will focus Y5/6 spelling rules and patterns, looking at new patterns and word listes every week. Please practise spellings using the given activity . Every week, on Wednesdays, there will be a spelling test on the words you have been learning.
Topic & Spelling homework will be set on Fridays and be due in on Wednesday.
NCT Practice Homework booklets will be sent out on Tuesdays and are due in on the following Monday.
These will consist of a test activity from
- 10-Minute GPS Test
- 10-Minute Maths Test
- Reading Comprehension (20-30 minutes)
I may also set short 5-minute Maths homework tasks in class related to work during the lesson for which you will have a special book. If you complete these short tasks, you will earn a reward.
You are also expected to read regularly and make a comment about your reading in your homework diary once a week.
See our homework page to download homework sheets here.
There is quite a lot of homework to do so you will need to be organised. If you need help or extra time, you are very welcome to attend homework club and ask for time at lunchtimes to do homework in school. I can also be available to help you with any tasks you are finding tricky. You need to be responsible, though, for asking me for additional help BEFORE the homework is due.
