Year 6 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to the Spring term in Year 6.
The children will be working hard to achieve their goals in all areas of the curriculum. Have a look at some of the things they will be learning!
Maths: In Maths, we will continue to learn about fractions, moving on to Ration and proportion and Algebra. We will then spend time looking at Decimals, Percentages and Statistics. To further support our learning in maths we will also complete Core Skills tasks each week which will include consolidation and pre-teaching of maths concepts. We will also be taking part in daily arithmetic challenges (Tough Ten).
English: In English, we will continue to build on our prior grammatical knowledge by using relative and subordinate clauses, the past perfect tense, passive voice, fronted adverbials of time, modal verbs, parenthesis and direct speech. We will be applying our skills on work based on the 2 quality texts: Kai and the Monkey King and Malala’s Magic Pencil.
Invaders or settlers? This project has a predominantly history focus in which the children will learn about Britain’s settlement by Anglo Saxons and Scots. We will also learn about the Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England to the time of Edward the Confessor. We will also look at some locational knowledge of UK linked to Anglo Saxons and Vikings in Geography. In Art, we will practice our sketching and sewing by learning all about the Bayeux tapestry. Finally, In DT we will design and make our own soup and bread.
PE Please can all PE Kits be in school throughout the school week. Our PE sessions will take place on a Monday and Thursday throughout this term. All children are to come to school wearing their PE tops on their PE days. Please can all items be clearly labelled. Please note: Most of our PE sessions will be outside so an additional jumper or jogging bottoms for PE during the winter months would be welcomed.
Water bottles Please can all children bring in a labelled water bottle for them to use throughout their day at school.
Homework Spelling homework will continue as EdShed, TT Rockstars and Maths and English homework will move to SATs Companion. All homework will be set on a Friday and due on a Wednesday. Spelling tests will also take place on a Wednesday.
Reading It is expected that children will read at home every day, please encourage children to log this in their planners. Children do not need to read to an adult for each session as independent reading is more than suitable, however, there is a joy in sharing a book with a family member, younger sibling or friend so please do encourage this where possible.
Planners/ Messages Should you need to speak to me please either write a note in your child’s planner or contact the school office, either by telephone or e-mail, who will either pass the message to me or arrange for me to contact you. Please ensure you let your child know if you write a note in their planner so that they know to pass this on to me.
Thank you for your support,
