The Year 6 team for this year is Miss Clifford and Mrs Watson
The Curriculum Booklets, giving details of what the children will be learning each half half, can be found below, along with the half term’s homework grid and spelling lists.
Homework at Forty Hill
At Forty Hill we believe in developing the whole child, academically as well as spiritually, morally, socially and culturally. We understand that some parents like lots of homework whereas others wish for none at all. In order to find a ‘best fit’, we publish our homework grids on a half termly basis (see above), giving a range of activities for children to do, both independently or with adult support. One homework activity needs to be completed each week and handed in every Wednesday morning. This will be acknowledged by the teaching team. Remember to choose at least 1 activity from each row over the half term. Remember to be as creative as possible! Please see your teacher or teaching assistant if you are unsure about any of the activities.
Some parents have requested additional maths homework to be provided by us and so we have published suggested workbooks for each relevant year group (as well as the answers) below. This additional optional homework does not need to be submitted and should be used as a tool for supporting your child at home if you wish.
Here are some useful revision papers and materials for you to help support your child at home.
Updates from PGL
Sunday Night Update
We are on the way to the disco having had a wonderful afternoon at the beach, canoeing!
See you tomorrow
Saturday Evening Update
More fun filled times have been had in the blazing heat!
Vertical Challenge – a climbing obstacle race -, Jacob’s ladder, problem solving and orienteering! All lots of fun and hopefully bed by 2am!
Update at lunchtime on Saturday
The morning started with some dragon boat racing! No photos I’m afraid as we couldn’t trust the teachers to keep the camera dry!!
This was followed by Jacob’s Ladder, Orienteering and a very muddy sensory trail!
Off to lunch now…
Everyone has settled in well after a smooth ferry crossing and journey to Little Canada.
Following a tour or the site and our rooms, we had a lovely dinner of vegetarian curry, fish and chips or chicken pie, as well as a large helping from the salad bar and angel delight for pudding.
The camp fire was burning this evening as we sang songs, ate marshmallows and enjoyed a lovely evening!
We are on the ferry!
