General Expectations, Rewards and Sanctions
As with other year groups, we expect all children to try their best and work hard in the classroom and in lessons.
We always encourage the children to treat each other, and all adults, with respect and kindness. In accordance with the rest of the school, we follow the behaviour policy whereby positive behaviours are rewarded and negative behaviours sanctioned in a way appropriate to Key Stage Two.
Please see the on-line behaviour policy for further details.
We will continue to encourage greater independence and responsibility and hope that you will also support your child in achieving this. Although we expect a great deal from your child, we offer a huge amount of praise and recognition for effort, achievement and good behaviour as well.
If you have any queries, please either speak to your child's class teacher or email 'AskYear6@Longfleet.poole.sch.uk'
When children are in school:
In Year 6, Home Learning is now found virtually, via Google Classroom. Each week, your child's spellings and maths will be uploaded to the 'Classwork' tab on the 'class' Google Classroom page. There will be different options, depending on the set that your child is in. Once your child has looked at and learnt their work, they will need to tick 'hand in' to show the class teacher that the learning is complete. There will also be a computing task, which will be done via Purple Mash. The log-in details for this can be found in your child's workbook, which can also be used for any working out, practising skills etc, and for sticking in the weekly assessments that are sent home.
The computing homework will need to be submitted on Purple Mash and ticked on Google Classroom to show the teacher that the work has been completed. Some of the computing tasks are quite a challenge! Mr Narramore will be recording his tutorials that are shown to the children in school (based on the activities set) so these will be a valuable resource and found within the Google Classroom, 'classwork' page.
Remember to read at least 3 times a week as well and always have each one of your reads signed by an adult. Reading record books will be checked every Friday - so please ensure they are completed and in on time so that all achievements can be rewarded!
Any home learning that has not been done (homework or home reading) will be caught up during lunchtimes. Happy home learning!
