Year 6 – Octopus

Latest Updates

General Information

Welcome back to school, we really hope the children have had a well-deserved break over the long Easter holidays. As your children enter their final term at Kingsleigh, time will certainly fly by, in what is sure to be a memorable and eventful term. The most pressing issue for the children this half term will be their SATs, which the children will sit the week beginning 13th May. We feel we have prepared the children really well for these, and if they apply the same level of dedication and commitment they have shown in their mock exams, they will do really well. Understandably, our focus in the opening three weeks will be to prepare the children for these exams as much as possible, with focused grammar and SPAG sessions dominating our Literacy lessons. We will be revising key mathematical topics such as fractions, and reviewing what the children have learnt so far in their time in Key Stage 2. After the SATs, the children will be learning how to write detailed narratives which include speech, and we will be continuing to read our class texts in Guided Reading.

Our topic this half term is ‘New York, New York’, which has always proven to be a popular topic in the past. The children will be creating their own Powerpoint quiz based on New York in ICT, and we will be completing perspective drawings of a city skyline in Art. The children’s home learning project this half term is to replicate their chosen skyscraper from New York, using only masking tape and newspaper, which we will then create an artistic year group display from.

At this potentially stressful time of the year, we really need your support in preparing the children for their upcoming exams. Please continue to encourage the children to read regularly at home, to frequently dip into their homework revision books, and to be on time for class. This was the children will feel prepared and calm for their SATs, and it will help them to realise their potential. Thye have worked really hard all year towards these, and we would love them all to do well. After the exams have finished, we will be starting to look at our end of year production, and we will be providing the children with clues as to what it will be shortly…

Many thanks, the Year 6 team.
