Year 6

Welcome to
Class 6!
 
Our class teachers are Mr Owen and Mrs Spry.
Other adults in class are:
Mrs Kelly and Mrs Potter
Writing - During the first part of the Summer term, we will formulating and presenting a balanced argument as well as explanation texts. 
We will be continuing to improve our reading comprehension by completing last term's class book, 'Wonder' by RJ Palacio. Writing flashback narratives and diary extracts of the book's character, August.  
Maths - Our learning will begin in week one with Statistics followed by Algebraic Equations in week two. The final few will involve revisiting and consolidating key skills to ensure we are fully prepared for the SATs. 
To build on our accuracy and fluency in mental calculations and written arithmetic skills, we will continue to tackle a daily combination of 'Mini-maths and Ninja Maths.'  In addition, we will be aiming to improve on individual performance in our weekly 'SATs style' arithmetic material, helping us to prepare for the upcoming SATs in May.
Physical Education
 
Our PE days are now Thursday and Friday. Please make sure that your child has their kit in school in order to participate in this fun, important and compulsory area of school life.  Those pupils without kit will use the spare items held by the class teacher.
Homework
 
  • Hearing your child read can be difficult at this age,  but as often as possible, ask your child questions about their reading book, challenge them to predict what will happen next and ask them to summarise what they have read so far.
  • Spellings will be issued on a Tuesday then tested on the following Monday.  Handwriting practice sheets will contain their spelling list and the children will have access to 'Literacy Planet' to practice further online.
  • 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.
  • In preparation for our SATs in May, the teacher will also send home material to support your child's learning.
Religious Education - On our return in Summer our focus will be Easter and Pentecost and Mission which will continue into the second half of the summer term.
