As Readers

We will read the text ‘Skellig’ by David Almond while continuing to build core skills including vocabulary and word meaning in context, inference, prediction, retrieval and summary. We will also focus on three-mark questions and point, evidence and explanation (PEE).

As Writers

We will be writing a range of both formal and informal texts in a variety of genre based on the class novel ‘Skellig’. We will build on our writing skills and become more cohesive and sophisticated writers to produce texts that are engaging and appropriate for the intended audience. Children will write both long and short pieces over the weeks.

As Mathematicians

We will be continuing to work on arithmetic and reasoning problems, while our main areas of learning will be fractions and percentages. Assessment week will take place in week 5 where children will sit another set of mock tests to enable us to measure their progress.

As Scientists

We will study the natural environment through our topic of focus in Geography, making cross-curricular links where possible.

Specialist subjects

Children have a weekly Art and French lessons every Tuesday afternoon. Specialist teachers teach these subjects.

PE

Lessons continue to take place on Monday afternoons. Please ensure pupils have the correct kit each week.

Home Learning

Pupils will receive Literacy and Maths homework every Friday that must be handed in on Tuesday of the following week which will be marked as a class. Please remind your child of the sanctions that are in place for non-completion of homework. In addition, pupils will be given a list of 5 spellings from the statutory list each day which they are expected to learn overnight - the spelling book is to brought back to school the next day. Over the course of the week, pupils will have been introduced to 25 new spellings. The following Monday they will be tested on 20 random words from the previous week and all scores will continue to be recorded and monitored. Please continue to read regularly with your child at home. Furthermore, we ask that you encourage your child to learn their multiplication tables up to 12. This is an ongoing expectation until your child can confidently recall them in a mixed order. Times tables are tested on Mondays and scores are recorded and monitored.

Other

Year 6 will be fortunate enough this term to have support from Ms Dias who will assist in teaching Maths lessons. We also continue to benefit from a Maths and an English tutor who work really hard with pupils on a one-to-one basis. Also, pupils will continue be offered after school booster sessions run by year 6 staff. Thank you very much for your support.
