Hello from the Year 6 staff - Miss Deo & Mr Morledge are your teachers this year and Mrs. Blake is your wonderfully committed teaching assistant. This year we are also very lucky to welcome Miss Lynch to our staff team. Miss Lynch is a graduate student who is working with us as part of a government initiative to help pupils catch-up post Covid.
Thank you for signing up to our Class Dojo platform which we will use for online learning if needed. Remember that you can see your child's Class Dojo on another device or computer by downloading the app or visiting the dojo website, signing in and entering the code given to you. Dojo is used to share our learning in school, homework, weekly spellings and amazing work which the children have done!
This term our learning is all about Industrial Revolution and our enquiry question for the term is 'How did the rise and fall of Derbyshire's industrial past impact Langley Mill?' We also have ten sticky knowledge questions we will work on this term & we will share these with you at the term's mid-point so that you can support your child with an Industrial Revolution related project.
Our PE days are:
Blackman Class: Wednesdays
Butterworth Class: Wednesdays
Can we please ask that you ensure your child’s uniform is as close to normal as possible. You may want to layer up under the jumpers on colder days as again, we will have the windows open for ventilation. We do have some spare clean, pre-loved uniform in school. If you could make use of this uniform, please contact Mrs Naylor.
Our uniform is:
Black or grey trousers, skirts or pinafores.
White or royal blue polo shirt or shirt.
Royal blue cardigan, jumper or fleece.
Hair tied up.
Black, navy or grey shorts or joggers weather dependent.
Blue Langley Mill Academy PE t-shirt.
Trainers that support your child’s feet for sport.
No jewellery on PE days please.
Thank you for your continued support,
The Year 6 Team.
Mathematics for this term will follow our school scheme, beginning with number and place value, addition and subtraction, and properties of shape. You can view our Year 6 long and medium term planning for the year by opening the link.
Timestables Rockstars is also an online platform that we use so that pupils can practise their tables which is so fundamental to all our maths work. Please encourage your children to regularly use this programme.
We expect all our children to enjoy reading and develop a reading habit. We ask that all pupils read at home 5 times per week and that this is recorded in their reading record.
Please contact us if you need any support. Remember, you can send us a message on Dojo for advice or support if needed.
