Gooseberry Planet - Town

  • As we are spending more time online at home than we might normally, our online safety curriculum is as important as ever!  Please additionally find our final two lessons for Gooseberry Planet below for you to complete at your leisure over the remaining half-term.  Don't forget that each lesson also has an online game in the app and your login details are in your reading diary.  Below, you will also find the Q&A for the end-of-unit Rapid Fire Quiz which is on the app and a very jazzy certificate for you to print out and keep to celebrate the end of the year's learning.

Home Learning

In Year 6, we strongly encourage independent thinking and learning and provide a choice of homework. These encompass not only learning and creativity, but also life skills and interactivity such as cooking, crafts, building and planning. Pupils are expected to bring their diaries as they are checked each day. Homework is to be completed by deadlines and there is an expectation that pupils begin to take responsibility for bringing their P.E kits, swimming kits, packed lunches etc.

As we get closer to May and SATs, we provide revision books for maths, reading and Grammar.

Spellings are given out weekly each Monday, then tested the following Monday. These also link in with our novel study.

Pupils are expected to read 5 times a week at home. Diaries are checked each Friday for ‘Reading Raffle.’ Those pupils achieving this receive tokens and treats!


Things to remember...

Monday – Spelling test, new spellings given out, homework in. P.E kits.

Wednesday – Re-take, if needed, of spellings

Friday – Diaries checked for Reading Raffle
