Class Six

Home Learning


There will be a Zoom session at 9.30am and 2pm each day commencing Wednesday 6th January. It is important for you to join these sessions. In the morning session I will be explaining the learning activities for the day ahead. In the afternoon, we will be self-marking the Maths and the comprehension tasks. All the details for the zoom meetings are in an email sent to your gmail account. 


You might be asked to join another zoom class during the day in a smaller group. I will send you the details to your email account so it is important for you to check for new emails. 


I would like to thank parants/guardians for your continued support at home. I completely understand how challenging this may be at times, therefore if you need any further guidance please contact me via the class email address:


Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


Take care & stay safe everyone, 

Mrs Craggs

Welcome to Class Six


Happy New Year to you all and welcome back - we hope you are all well. We are looking forward to another busy and exciting term with you in Class 6. 


Any questions, please feel free to ring at the front office. 

Many thanks, 

Mrs Craggs

Reading: Please ensure you are all reading every night and your reading record is signed and brought back into school, along with your home/school reading book, everyday. 


Spelling: Please ensure you are all practicing your spellings on your spelling sheet every night and returning it to school everyday. Spellings will be tested every Friday and new spellings will be handed out on the same day. 


Times Tables: Please ensure you are logging on to TT Rockstars at least three times a week and spending some time learning and revising your times tables. 


At The Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks we set as homework.


Obviously the level of engagement will depend on your child's age but we expect you take an active part in all aspects of homework and, where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g signing the Home/School Reading Record Book.)


The routines of reading every day, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child's established routine. Short, sharp periods of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.


Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc.) Please give some thought to where your child works at home. 


Spring Term Learning


During this term, our topic is ‘The Mayans’ and as part of our History curriculum, using primary and secondary sources along with artefacts, we will be discovering who the Mayans were, when and where this significant period of history was using a timeline of historical events and studying their daily lives and comparing them with our own. We will also be looking at the Maya writing systems and Maya foods.


In English we will be reading 'Wonder’ by R J Palacio and discussing in great detail the themes present and comparing them with other stories. We will be using these discussions to form a debate in class. We will also be writing our own anecdotes, postcards and a new chapter for the story. We will be continuing to read ‘Running Wild’ by Michael Morpurgo during our Guided Reading sessions.


In Maths we will be continuing to revisit our arithmetic and ensuring we are confident with our four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). We will also be working on geometry and measurements, more specifically, coordinates and translation, whilst continuing to work on our fractions, decimals and percentages. We will also be spending a lot of time developing our reasoning skills in order to solve problems.


Please see below the extensive list of websites that your child can visit to consolidate and extend his/her learning.
