Year 6 Overview 2023-24

Home Reading

It is very important that your child keeps up their reading at home. Children will still be expected to read at least four times a week – children can either read their home reading book which will be provided by your child’s teachers or they can read on Reading Plus: 

Whilst only some children are currently accessing Reading Plus in school, ALL children have a log in, so can use it at home, or during their silent reading time in class.

Children can access stories online, which helps develop their fluency, speed, understanding and vocabulary. 

Your child can log in to Reading Plus here: https://student.readingplus.com/seereader/api/sec/login



TT Rockstars

Your child can practise their times tables on TT Rockstars. All children have been provided with their TT Rockstars login please contact your child’s class teacher.

Your child can log in to TT Rockstars here: https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student

Active Learn – Abacus

Your child can also access interactive maths games, which have been allocated by myself, on Active Learn. The games are relevant to what we’ve been learning in school. There’s three levels to each game: bronze, silver and gold. Please do all three, starting with bronze.
