Year 6 2019
Welcome to Year 6!
Miss Smith (6VS), Mr Constantine (6LC), Mrs Okon and Mr Hewitt make up the Year 6 staff team this year.
We are back and on the incredibly busy run up to Christmas. Here's a taste of what we'll be up to:
This half term we will be looking at geometry, statistics and problem solving. We will also be taking a deep look at fractions, finding equivalences, adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators, simplifying and much more. We will also be continuing with mental calculations (arithmetic, mental maths etc.)
This half term the children will be exploring a range of texts including A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. We will also use extracts from Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell due to the Paris connection across the two stories. Our focuses will be varying sentence openers, high quality punctuation (such as colons & semi-colons) and using adverbial and prepositional phrases.
Our ‘Memories’ theme continues this half-term where the children will be promoting, marketing, making and selling their own products. The children will be creating adverts for their products as well as using budgeting skills in mathematics. We will also be using our DT skills as we design, make and evaluate our products. Our Geography focus will be based on a study of Paris and Manchester.
