Welcome to the Dragonflies class page. We are the Year 6 class at Little Plumstead. Our class teacher is Mrs Hurn.
On P.E. Days, please com dressed in your P.E. kit. Both P.E. sessions will be outside, so, as the weather turns colder, warmer clothing will be required. P.E. Kit should be: White T-Shirt, blue or black shorts or jogging bottoms and blue or black sweatshirt (no hoodies please!).
P.E. days this half term will be Tuesday and Thursday.
Tuesday – Swimming (swimming costume, towel, hat and goggles required) or Netball with Mrs Hurn.
Thursday – Tag Rugby with Norwich Community Sports Foundation.
Children are expected to read at home daily for at least 15 minutes. They can read to themselves or an adult and should record their reading in their pupil planners. Recording in a planner is good practice for High School. It would be great if you could talk to your child about what they are reading, ask questions about the characters and what is happening. Share what you are reading with them too!
Children should access TTRS for 15 minutes, 5 days per week. This has been proven to make an impact on times tables knowledge and overall fluency in all areas of Mathematics.
We are currently assessing the children’s spelling with the aim of the children developing a personalised lists of tricky words they are working on, taken from the statutory word lists and their work in class. This will be developed into a “Focus 5” which children will record in their spelling journals at school and their pupil planners. Once children have proved they have learned to spell these words (evidenced use in their written work) they will replace them with new words from their list.
We will also cover spelling rules in class and these words will be sent home in their pupil planners – some children may like to learn and practice these at home, other children may just practice reading the words and focus more on learning their “Focus 5” words.
