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 extremely hard and now deserve a well-earned break! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask any of the Year 6 team.
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: Coming Soon.
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.
How can following God bring freedom and justice?
We will be exploring the teachings of God and thinking about how we can apply them to our lives today.
Building on from our electricity learning we will be experimenting with light and dark. Additionally, this will link to our topic where we will create pieces using light techniques.
Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday, children will be tested on a Friday.
Year 6 SATs will take place on the week commencing 13th May 2019. Children are preparing for these tests in school. You can help your child prepare at home by continuing to work with them on their times tables, spellings, grammar and reading. www.satspapers.org has a range of old SAT papers and answers as well as the test materials from previous years.
Booster classes have already started and are working really well. Children will be invited to a booster either before or after school. They are extremely important for preparing your child for SATs. Please see separate letter for details.
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!!!!!!
We are always around at the end of the day, so please feel free to see us if you have any questions!
REMINDER: Weekly homework will also be given on a Friday for the following Friday.
