Class Trip: Art trip Salford Quays and The Lowry-Monday 17th September 2018
In English, we will be developing our reading, writing and grammar skills through exploring both fiction and non-fiction writing styles. We will work through the various stages of our topic linking to non-fiction texts as well as internet use to find out facts. Our class reader will be Wonder as well as looking at the story ‘A necklace of raindrops.’
In Mathematics this term, we will be continuing to work through our Maths No Problem journey. Our focus this term is place value. Regular arithmetic tests will be given to the children in intervention 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 three 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 Starbooks chart.
In previous years, we have been the highest percentage of readers each week in assembly. Come on we can keep it going!
Monday and Wednesday. Full kit will be needed to take part!
Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday, children will be tested on a Friday.
REMINDER: Homework will be given out once per half term.
We are always around at the end of the day, so please feel free to see us if you have any questions!
