Class Teacher: Miss Anderton
LSA's: Mrs Harrison & Ms Newbury
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help and support throughout this half term. The children have been working really hard on their SATs tests and now deserve a well-earned break! Here are just a few reminders/notices about what will be happening in the new term when the children return to school.
Topic: Gallery Rebels
Colours collide melting together on the canvas; an impression of light, a rage of red, a lobster perched on a telephone…Come and find out about the bizarre and eccentric minds of the gallery rebels! Art can be an act of rebellion. Can you change the world with a paintbrush, a thought or an idea?
Class Trip: Sandcastle Water Park- Wednesday 10th July 2019.
In English this half term, we will be developing our reading, writing and grammar skills through the exploration of both fiction and non-fiction writing styles. We will use books and the internet to research information about the Titanic. Our class reader will be chosen by the children on our first day back!
In Mathematics this term, we will be continuing to work through our Maths -No Problem journey. Our focus this half term is measurements and ratio. Regular arithmetic tests will be given to the children in post teaching sessions to get them used to test style questions.
Reading at Home
In year 6, it is important that you read with your child at home AT LEAST five nights a week and sign their reading record. We allow year 6 children to sign their reading record themselves twice a week. Children must have it signed to gain their sticker. Mrs Harrison will be making a note of children that have read so they can earn their sticker on the reading chart.
What names do faiths other than Christianity give to God?
We will be exploring other religions and the key ideas and teaching that are important to them.
Building on from all of our learning this year we will be planning, delivering and evaluating lots of different science experiments!
Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday, children will be tested on a Friday.
Year 6 Play
Lights, Camera, Action!
Year 6 will soon begin rehearsing for our leavers play. Each year, the play has been a lovely opportunity for the children and staff to wind down and celebrate the time they have spent at Christ Church. We hope to see you all there! Letters to go out, nearer the time.
High School Transition
Children will be given dates for their transition days (each high school is different) where children get to experience a day in the life of a year 7 pupil. This is a really good chance for children to have a look around the school, meet the teachers and also take part in lots of fun activities.
Year 6 YLA!
We are delighted that all Y6 have completed the 'Young Leaders Award'. They took ownership of a cake sale and managed to raise £70 for Salford Food Bank. Go Team Year 6!!!!!!
REMINDER: Weekly homework will also be given on a Friday for the following Friday.
