Class Teacher: Miss Anderton
LSA's: Mrs Harrison & Ms Newbury
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. Below are all the exciting topics and important points for next term in year 6.
At 2:20 a.m. on April 15, 1912, the "unsinkable" R.M.S. Titanic disappeared beneath the waves, taking with her 1,500 souls. How did it sink? Why were so many lives lost? These will be some of the questions answered in our next topic in Year 6. Our topic will be taught through English with particular links to persuasive writing.
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 Thursday. Full kit will be needed to take part!
What difference does the resurrection make to Christians?
We will be exploring the very prevalent Easter story then deepening our understanding of how significant events impact us as Christians.
Circuits, bulbs, buzzers and motors. Could you build a circuit using energy from a vegetable? We will explore the ever-changing world of energy and electricity.
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.
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.
