Year 6

Welcome to
Class 6!
 
Our class teacher is Mrs Spry and our other adults in class are
Miss Battistini, Mrs Kelly, Mrs Percy and Mrs Shores.
Mr Gill and Mr Dyson too!
Writing - Our focus for the final Summer term will be Shakespeare!  Starting with a drama workshop delivered by the Theatre Royal team and culminating in the performance of 'The Shakespeare Rap,' as written by Class 6.
We will maintain and improve our reading comprehension with the challenge of reading some original and reworked scripts.  Our writing skills will be in need for our weekly narrative, related to our exposure to a variety of plays from 'Much Ado About Nothing,' to 'The Scottish Play!' 
Maths - With our Year 6 curriculum complete, we will continue to maintain our arithmetic skills through Mini-maths and Ninja Maths.  The children will have an opportunity to shape their maths lessons, by returning to areas which they individually feel that they would like to strengthen, in preparation for secondary school.  We will have the freedom to have many more practical and outdoor maths sessions and also explore mathematical investigations. 
Physical Education
 
Our PE days have changed and are now Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child brings their kit to school in order to participate in this fun, important and compulsory area of school life.
Homework
 
  • Please hear your child read three times within a week, talking about the book as much as possible and discussing what is happening.  Please sign their reading record each time.
  • Spellings will be issued on a Tuesday then tested on the following Monday.
  • Mathletics homework will be set each week.  The assignment will relate to an aspect of learning that your child will be familiar with, but would benefit from discussing their thinking process with you.
  • Each pupil will have a 'One Minute Maths Challenge' which they need to practice at home, in preparation for being tested at points throughout the term.
Religious Education - Our final half-term will focus on 'Pentecost & Mission,' followed by the study of the other faiths of Judaism and Sikhism. 
In the first unit, as we support the children in their transition to secondary school, links between the Sacrament of Confirmation and the effect of the Holy Spirit in their lives will be reflected upon.
