Welcome to Year 6!
We are very excited this half term as we begin to prepare for our Christmas productions and deck the Godley halls with glitter and sparkle.
Our whole school theme this half term is 'Buried Treasure' within that Year 6 will be focusing on the Greatest Showman. From this, within English the children will be exploring and writing their own versions of The Greatest Showman. The children will be then exploring persuasive writing after they have created their products to sell at the Christmas Fair and Hyde Christmas Market. Throughout this writing the children will be focusing on sentence structure, grammar and punctuation.
In Maths the children will be focusing on fractions, geometry, statistics and problem solving. Along side this, the children will be continuing to work on their mental calculations (arithmetic, mental maths and timestables).
This exciting theme will see the children promoting, marketing, making and selling their own products on Hyde Market. The children will be creating adverts for their products as well as developing their budgeting skills in Mathematics. The children will also be using their DT skills as they design, make and evaluate their products.
Later in the term, the children will be exploring how Christmas is celebrated around the world.
There are also lots of exciting events that will be happening over the half term, please check your child's newsletter for key dates and up-coming events.
Thank you for your continuing support,
Miss Peacock and Mrs Okon.
