Year 6 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 6!
Miss Smith (6VS), Mr Constantine (6LC), Mrs Okon and Mr Hewitt make up the Year 6 staff team this year.
Happy New Year and welcome back! We hope you have all had an enjoyable festive period and wish you well for the New Year ahead. We are all extremely grateful for the generous gifts and cards received before Christmas – thank you very much! We are going to be very busy over the next half term as we begin preparations for SATs and begin our new themes. We will be covering the following during the next term:
This half term we will be looking at Geometry, Decimals and Percentages, Measurement and various other shape work and a range of reasoning and problems solving skills as we start preparing for the questions posed by the Maths SATs.
The children are always encouraged to keep up with their times table knowledge so support with this at home is greatly appreciated.
The book we will be focusing on this half-term is Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian. During the unit, we will be focusing on the use of hyphens and commas to avoid ambiguity, developing our skills in editing and peer assessment, proofreading for errors, and correcting spelling mistakes.
In addition, we will be reviewing our SPaG knowledge in preparation for SATs.
Our new theme for this term is Conflict and as part of this, we will be focusing on WW2, where we will be enriching our History and Geography skills by looking at maps, learning about Anne Frank, looking at rationing within maths, baking some of the food that was eaten during the war and much more!.
This theme will lead us in to a range of text types for our writing, including newspapers articles, diary entries and non-chronological reports.
