Next week, year 6 will be writing a recount of what life was like living in the trenches during WW1. The children will also be adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions.
Welcome to the Autumn Term in Year 6.
It was wonderful to see all the children in school again, looking smart and eager to learn. We have started this year with our Arts week, which this year is based on the film Aladdin. The children have already completed some wonderful pieces of work, improving their painting, sketching and weaving skills. Please do ensure you stop by and look at their final display along the corridor by the library, when Arts week has finished. This half term, our topic will be ‘Arabian Nights’, and the children will be learning about Lawrence of Arabia as well as studying the movement of lights and formation of shadows in Science. We will again be using ‘Times Table Rockstars’, as this was hugely successful and popular last year. Remember, all children in Year 6 should be able to immediately recall their times table facts up to 12×12, and it is a great program the children can access at home. Additionally, we will be launching the ‘Spelling Shed’, which is another online app the children can use to improve their spelling strategies. Username and passwords will be available in their diaries soon, and we would ask that you encourage the children to use these at home. In order to assist with the transition to Secondary School, the children will have homework, which will be handed out on Tuesdays, and due back in the following Monday. The children must ensure they see a teacher before the weekend if they do not understand their homework. We have really enjoyed hearing about all the reading the children are doing at home, and this continue to be a primary focus for us in Year 6 as they work towards their SATs. Children should read at least fives times a week and record this in their diaries. We are looking forward to seeing as many of the parents and carers as possible on Wednesday 19th September for the Parent Briefing, which will be held after school in the small hall. We hope to see you there!
