Welcome to Year 6
Teachers: Miss Kelly, Mrs Robinson & Mr Roe
Teaching Assistant: Miss Doody
In Year 6, we strive to make the children’s final year at Twickenham Primary School a memorable one. We ensure the children leave our school with the academic, organisational, social and emotional skills to move smoothly on to the next stage of their educational journey at secondary school.
Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their correct PE kit which is: a white t-shirt/polo shirt, a blue school jumper/cardigan, black/blue jogging bottoms/leggings/shorts and trainers.
Your child should bring their reading book to school every day. We recommend that your child reads at home for at least 25 minutes every day and at least twice a week with an adult.
Homework will be set via Google Classroom every Friday and must be completed and ‘handed in’ electronically the following Wednesday. If your child cannot access Google Classroom due to technical difficulties, they will be given a paper copy to take home and return to school. On occasions, we may set one-off tasks for your child to complete in addition to Fridays.
All children have been provided with a Google Classroom log in. The homework set will be linked to your child’s learning in class and gives them the opportunity to apply this learning independently. Your child may also be set a short task to complete overnight as well as their usual homework.
As well as their Google Classroom logins, children have also been given TimesTables Rockstars logins so they can practise their times tables at home.
We use a thematic approach as an exciting way of delivering a broad and balanced curriculum that inspires children to nurture a passion for lifelong learning. The topics your child will cover this year are:
(History of Africa, past and present and the development of the slave trade)
Britain at War
