Class Teacher: Miss Anderton
LSA's: Mrs Harrison & Ms Newbury
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support during our autumn term. Below are all the exciting topics and important points for 2019 in year 6.
Topic: Frozen Kingdom-Titanic
Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands…Vast wilds and hostile territories-incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and the deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or be pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.
Class Trip: Monday 14th of February Student's Union of The University of Manchester.
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 The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman.
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.
In previous years, Y6 have had 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!
People of faith-Hinduism
We will be exploring the very exciting religion and having a particular focus on their special celebration of light- Diwali.
Evolution and Inheritance
Have you ever wondered why your eyes are a particular colour? Well, step into our Darwin Discovery where we will be learning about how humans have evolved over the years.
Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday, children will be tested on a Friday.
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.
We are always around at the end of the day, so please feel free to see us if you have any questions!
REMINDER: Topic homework will be given out once per half term. Weekly homework will also be given on a Friday for the following Friday.
