About Y6

R.E:

 Kingdom of God

“Instead, be concerned above everything else with the Kingdom of God and with what he requires of you, and he will provide you with all these other things.” (Matthew 6:33)

The children will be introduced to Jesus’ teaching about the Kingdom of God; a teaching central to his life and mission. They will be taught the concept of the Kingdom of God through some of the parables and miracles of Jesus and will explore the ways in which people respond to Jesus’ invitation to belong to his Kingdom.

The children will have the chance to:

• reflect on what the Kingdom of God is like and is not like

• understand some of the parables of the Kingdom

• reflect on the importance of responding to the invitation to the Kingdom

• reflect on the words and deeds necessary to show commitment to the Kingdom

• know there are three kinds of miracle

• know that Jesus’ miracles reflected the beginning of the Kingdom and show us what God is like

At Home                                                                                                                             

You could help your children by:

• asking them to explain the meaning of the Kingdom of God

• discuss the parables and their meaning

• read a miracle story and discuss what it tells us about God

 

Educational Visits:

We enrich our curriculum by arranging the following:

A 5-day residential visit to Oaklands Outdoor Education Centre.

Art days at our feeder school St Mary's Catholic College.

Visits to our parish church Holy Apostles and Martyrs.

Visits to our local theatre the Floral Pavilion.

Sports competitions at local schools. 

 

Reminders

Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.

Please label ALL clothing and belongings.

 

Physical Education (PE)

Our P.E day is Thursday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Thursday wearing their P.E Kit. School uniform for P.E is a white t-shirt, black or navy-blue shorts and black pumps. As P.E lessons will largely be held outside to support social distancing, your child may require something warmer to wear as the weather becomes colder. This could include black or navy-blue jogging trousers, a sweatshirt and trainers. Please ensure that all items of kit are clearly labelled with your child’s name.  For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.

 

Homework

English homework will be sent out on Wednesday and returned by the following Monday. Maths homework will be sent out on Friday for the following Wednesday. It is used to consolidate your child’s learning from that week. Please allow and encourage your child to attempt their homework independently before supporting them if required.

 

Times Tables

Children are expected to know all of their tables up to 12 x 12 and associated division facts by the end of Year 4. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp.

Reading

The children are expected to read independently at home on a regular basis (15 minutes per night). They should keep a record in their diary of what they have read. Please listen to them read out loud once a week and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.

 

Spellings

Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 spellings. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class and then sent home.

 

Parent/Carer Curriculum Information

Throughout the year we will attach overviews with more information about what your child will be learning in each curriculum area during each term. We cover a variety of exciting topics throughout the year and may ask your child to bring in items from home to support these.
