What to expect during Autumn Half Term.
This half term will be an important time for your child at Brookfield. Not only are you dealing with a nervous, anxious or excited child, you are also trying to cope with a whole new situation. In Year Six, I have followed the Government guidelines and made the classroom as safe as possible for each and every child;
Keeping in touch
School now uses the Class Dojo app to keep parents, carers and children informed. Every child received the information before school went into lockdown in their child's work pack. If you are unable to find your specific code, please call the office and they will contact me. I will send a piece of paper home with your child with the details for you to log on.
Help us to help you
PLEASE follow the 2 metre rule in the playground when you are dropping off and collecting your child.
PLEASE be patient when we are dismissing the children at the end of the day. I am not always sure which child belongs to which parent.
PLEASE remember, Year Six children will only be allowed into the building between 8:30am and 8:40am - no matter what the weather conditions are!
PLEASE do not send your child into school if s/he is unwell. We are all in a classroom together and can catch a cold, sickness bug and other illnesses. This, at the beginning of a school year is normal and continues to be despite the situation. If you think your child's illness is COVID related, please be tested and email the results to school. We are unable to test children or yourself.
If we stick to the guidelines, there is less chance of another complete lockdown and the school closing.
FUNDA are running or wrap around care - breakfast and after school clubs. As school no longer runs this, I am unable to give you information concerning the arrangements and you should visit/Google the FUNDA website. You do have to pre book and pay for their services in advance. There is no longer a breakfast club.
There are 24 children in Year 6
Miss McNee - Class Teacher
Mr Whiston - PPA Cover Teacher
Mrs Walton - Class Teaching Assistant
Coach Chris - FUNDA Coach
Mrs Zhang - Mandarin Teacher
Year 6's Curriculum
Throughout the year, we will study a variety of different topics:
Please see Year 6's Curriculum Overview for more information.
Throughout each topic the children will be covering a variety of different subjects including:
Spelling: Children have weekly spellings which they will learn during the week. For extra practice, there is a copy of the weekly spellings below. Children will be tested on the spellings on a Friday.
Reading: Children are expected to read every night for at least ten minutes. Please support your child with their reading by asking them questions about the text. Please sign your child's reading record and return to school daily.
Maths: Maths will be set on the online learning website My Maths. This will be set every Monday and will have a week to complete it. If you require a new log in then please let me know.
Creative Curriculum: Each half term your child will receive a new 'Creative Curriculum' grid with different tasks based around that half term's topic. Please do not send in the homework book but you are more than welcome to send photographs of the homework to me through Class Dojo.
Our PE day is a Tuesday morning.
Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit for their lessons, with their names written in their shorts, t-shirts and trainers/pumps. Children will not be allowed to wear shoes to take part in their PE lessons.
During the colder months, children may wear plain black or blue joggers and a black or blue jumper/hoodie.
PE kits can remain in school in the children's individual boxes which are now located in the classrooms.
