Welcome to Year 6

We have an exciting year ahead, crammed full of hard work and fun! Forest Schools and some High School taster days are just some of the highlights we have planned for the Autumn term. A fieldwork study of Southport's coasts along with reading the fantastic Robinson Crusoe are in store for the Spring term, swiftly followed by the much anticipated Year 6 residential trip to Conwy in July. What a fantastic year!

P.E Lessons

Year 6 currently has P.E. on a Thursday and Friday. Your child should come into school in correct kit on those days. We also complete Golden Mile on a Tuesday afternoon, there is no need for your child to come into school in P.E. kit on that day. However, they may wish to bring trainers to change in to for running the track.


Homework at Norwood.
At Norwood, we are passionate about supporting you as much as possible with your child's education. We are also very aware that homework can be  a struggle for many of you at home. This year we have tried to simplify our approaches and also save money and waste. Instead of sending home lots of booklets and worksheets, each child will have an exercise book that they can use to support their homework. Any passcodes from (examples of what)  will be stuck on the front cover of the book, so they can easily access any websites used by  school.
Every THURSDAY homework powerpoint will be shared on Class Dojo. This covers SPELLING, TIMES TABLES and GEOGRAPHY FAST LEARNING. (Please check this according to your year group homework expectations.)   
On TUESDAY every week, homework books need to be returned to school, in order for staff to check learning. 
Reading is still a very important part of our homework expectations. We are continuing to promote reading, so please read at home and make comments at least 3 times a week.
Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

 It is important that homework is completed and in school on time, as we go through the Maths homework and Geography on a Thursday Afternoon. If your child is unable to complete the homework, they will be able to finish it during their lunch hour in school. If it would help them, please ask about Homework club (which takes place after school on a Thursday).

Reading Records are dur in every Tuesday. 

Additional learning:

  • Spellings - as well as the spelling booklet that is sent home, children will be revising a spelling rule each week. If you would like to know what rule your child is working on, please send your class teacher a message on Class Dojo.
  • TTRS - whilst we do not set homework on Times Table RockStars, it is still a fantastic resource that your children have access to. Their login details can be found on the information sheet in their Homework Folder, but please ask if you need another copy of them.
  • Oxford Reading Buddies - Your child has login details for the online reading platform in their homework folder. The class code is 22na2.
