Welcome to Year 6
Where have the holidays gone? We hope you all had an amazing break and are all refreshed for the start of term!
In our class we have our teacher Mrs Dennis and our amazing teaching assistant Miss Herring!
In our class we have 22 year 6 pupils.
This is obviously an extremely important time for our year 6 pupils as it is their final year in primary school and they will be taking their SAT’s in May. We will all be working very hard throughout this year to do the best we can!
This term in…
English we will be basing our work around the wonderful book ‘Stormbreaker’ written by Anthony Horowitz and then ‘Look into my eyes’ written by Lauren Child. Using these we will study spy/crime texts, diaries, letters, non-chronological reports, narratives and much more!
Maths we are looking at place value, four operations, fractions and geometry. We will continue to practise our ‘Rock Star’ tables; trying to improve our speed with our times tables. It is also our aim to become more proficient / fluent at applying our maths skills in problem solving and mathematical reasoning.
Science we are taking a look at Light and Electricity.
History is about all about the changes in crime and punishment from the time of the Stuarts to present day.
Art we will be taking a look at ‘Banksy’ the graffiti artist.
Spellings are given out on a Friday and our test will be on the following Thursday – it is extremely important that children practise and learn these.
Reading – Each child has an individual reading book and reading record. Reading of any type is very important as we only become good writers if we are good readers! Please encourage regular reading. We now use ‘Accelerated Reader’ as a reading process in school. Children are given a book at their reading level. When complete, children complete a quiz about the book. This will encourage children to read for understanding.
Homework is given weekly and should be returned on a Monday. The work given always supports work done in class and will help children to consolidate learning. Please encourage children to complete homework on time each week.
