Victoria Behaviour Codes

  • Be Safe and Happy

  • Be Respectful

  • Learn More!

                               British Values   

As part of our British Values in Year 6, we will be learning about democracy by encouraging the children to make decisions together.  One of the ways we will be doing this is by holding class votes.  We vote for our School Council representatives and also vote for our Behaviour Ambassador each half term.

 

Mutual respect and tolerance of each other are part of the values underpinned in Year 6, and the importance of accepting, respecting and valuing the feelings and views of others is embedded in the day to day learning.  We will be learning about similarities and differences, and how these should be celebrated.  Children are always encouraged to develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, and to express their needs and opinions. 

 

The children are taught the importance of having rules and routines in place within the school and classroom, and how they contribute to making our school a safe and happy environment.  They are always encouraged to think about their actions and make good choices.  Our Behaviour Ambassador will choose a weekly 'Behaviour Star' to celebrate this.

 

We will work together to help one another and to make Year 6 Pullman a great class!

Homework

 

All children at Victoria Community School have homework, in Year 6 it just gets a little more demanding, preparing them for their transition to daily homework in Year 7 at High School.  Homework books will be supplied to each child at the beginning of the year and I hope you will take good care of them and take pride in the work you put into them.  You could cover them to keep them looking pristine!

The children are expected to read daily for 20 minutes as this will help them develop their understanding and fluency when reading longer texts.  Their reading records are to be signed when parents/guardians/older siblings have listened to them read.  We aim for each child to have read 100 books by the end of Year 6 so they can achieve their Gold Award Olympic Reader Certificate.

Spellings will be given out to learn on a weekly basis.

Most homework will be given out on a weekly basis, but there may be some other weeks when there are tasks to complete.  Weekly homework will be given out on Thursdays, to be returned by the following Tuesday. 

The homework will all relate to what your child is currently learning in class.  This half-term, the children will be completing the following, in addition to their reading and spellings;

  • maths work about place value, addition and subtraction
  • English work for autobiographical writing, poetry and balanced arguments
  • comprehension work about the Mayan civilisation 
  • science work about living things and their habitats

 

If you need help, see any Year 6 member of staff on a Friday or following Monday.

 

The children are welcome to complete their homework from 8.25am to 8.40am each day if they arrive at school during these times.

Year 6 Maths Targets

 

The children have half-termly maths targets to work on.  In autumn 1, the children will be learning the number bonds, including decimals. They complete three tests - one at the beginning, mid half-term and one at the end of the half-term.  Hopefully, they make lots of progress!

 

 

 

 

 

Year 6 English Learning Walls

 

The children have these Learning Walls in the front of their reading and writing books.  They have to highlight when they have achieved that particular target.   We aim to have them all achieved towards the end of the year!
