Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome back Year 6! I hope that you had a great Easter break and that you are looking forward to a very busy Summer term! Below is a little bit about the things that we are going to learn.
In English, we will be studying a range of genres, including narratives, recounts, persuasion, instructions, letters and newspaper reports. Lots of our writing will be based on and around our Leavers’ Show which we are all very excited about!
In addition, we will continue to focus on reading comprehension, spelling, punctuation and grammar.
In Maths, we will be using our skills and knowledge to become entrepreneurs in order to raise money for our upcoming PGL trip. We will be applying our understanding of the four operations in order to solve real life problems.
In Science, we will learn about how living things are classified into broad groups according to common, observable characteristics and based on similarities and differences, including micro-organisms, plants and animals. We will then move on to look at animals, focusing on the circulatory human system.
As of January, homework will now be set on a Monday and returned on a Thursday. On a Thursday, you will receive your next piece of homework and this should be returned on a Monday. Homework will be linked to the work that we are covering in class and will help you to prepare for your SATs. Remember that you can always upload your homework to Showbie. Your blue Homework Diaries should be in school every day. Please continue to read daily at home and record this in your blue dairy for extra dojos!
Year 6 will have PE on a Friday. PE kits should be brought to school on a Monday and remain here until Friday each week.
To support your learning at home, you will be able to find lots of English and Maths activities on Education City. Follow this link to find out how to access Education City on your iPad:
