Term 4
 
Welcome back to Term 4. This term our topic is 'Living things' but our main focus this term will be revision for our SATs which will take place in May. 
 
We will be covering a broad range of topics within all subjects this term, with our main focus in Science being classification, habitats and evolution.
 
We start off the term reading Charlotte's Web and we will be thinking about effective narrative descriptions and diary entries in our writing.
 
Please remember that we have revision clubs after school on Mondays and Thursdays.
 
Term 3
 
Welcome back to Term 3.  This term our topic is "Shakespeare".  Most of our Literacy and History work will link to this topic. 
 
We will be exploring a wide range of texts in Literacy and writing narratives, balanced arguments, letters, diary entries, newspaper articles and information texts.  Within our writing, we will be focusing on securing our sentence level skills and developing our editing skills.
 
In Maths we will be focusing on the following topics: shapes and angles, measures, fractions and percentages, data handling and order of operations.  We will also be starting our revision as we approach the SAT tests.
 
We have already completed some interesting research in History and have enjoyed learning about micro-organisms in Science.
 
All children have had a homework project sent home and continue to have daily reading.  Please do encourage your child to read on a daily basis and sign their reading book.
 
I was really pleased to see that Year 6 had 100% attendance last week - they have an extra break as a reward! Well done. We are going to try to meet this target again this week.
 
Please do speak to me if you would like any further information.

Term 2
Welcome back to Term 2!  I hope you all had a lovely break.  This term we will be very busy exploring the text " The Firework Maker's Daughter" by Phillip Pullman.  Throughout the term we will be using this text to inspire us in our work - learning about light in science and designing firework packaging amongst other things.
 
Please continue to encourage your child to read every day at home and keep on learning those maths facts!
 
This week we have been learning about discussion texts in literacy and developing our confidence with long division in maths.  We have also been writing a short explanation text in science, describing how we can see objects.
 
It has been a fantastic start to the term - well done Year 6!
 
Keep an eye out for more information about what we are doing in class.
 
 

Welcome back after the summer holidays!

This term our topic is ‘Victorians’ and we will be learning all about what life was like during the Victorian times and some of the key changes that have impacted upon our lives today. 

Our Literacy work will link with our topic, as we will write stories set during the Victorians and study classic texts such as ‘Oliver’ by Charles Dickens.  We will also be writing newspaper articles, diary entries, discussion texts and poetry.  In all of these texts we will be focusing on securing the sentence level skills taught last year and extending our use of vocabulary. 

In Maths we will be covering a wide range of topics and really focusing on problem solving skills, but key topics will include: fractions and percentages, conversions of measures, negative numbers, drawing shapes on a co-ordinate grid, pie charts and using simple formulae.  We continue to do an arithmetic lesson every week, which develops pupils’ confidence in solving number sums using a range of written methods.  Knowledge of square, cube and prime numbers will be tested every Friday.

P.E lessons will generally take place on a Monday (outdoor lesson) and a Friday (indoor lesson).  Please ensure that children have appropriate kit in school at all times. This term our topics are Tag Rugby and Dance.
