Year 6 2019 - 2020

Welcome to our Year 6 page.

Our team

Teachers: Mr Watts, Miss Aylott and Miss McDade (UQS)

Teaching Assistants: Miss Marshall, Miss Russett and Mrs Clark

 English


To improve the children's reading and comprehension skills, it is important for the children to read every night. Could we please ask parents/carers to sign the children's Communication Diaries, so that we can evaluate how often the children read (they earn an extra smilie for reading 5 times each week). Children achieving this will have a greater chance of gaining their Respect Award. It is important for the children to be asked questions about the text they are reading, to help build their inference and comprehension skills. The children also really enjoy listening to stories.

The children are given a spelling activity every Friday and are expected to complete it by the following Friday. This activity is to help children learn spelling patterns that they can apply to their everyday writing. New words appropriate to their year group will be taught in spelling sessions in school.

Our writing this term will be based around the text ‘Survivors'.

 

Maths

Currently the children are focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages.

Although the children should now know their times tables very well, they will still have the opportunity to play multiplication games to improve their knowledge.

Science

During the spring term, the children will be covering Electricity and Light.

In the spring term we will look at Living Things in their Habitats and Evolution and Inheritence.

In the summer term, the children will be studying Animals Including Humans.

 

CoJo (History and Geography)

During COJO work the children will learn about History and Geography through the study of three inspirational people. In these lessons, as well as learning key Geography and History skills, the children will develop seven fundamental characterics: Respect, Empathy, Self Awareness, Perseverance, Excellence, Communication and Teamwork.

In the autumn term, the children will study Nancy Wake, a World War 2 spy.

In the spring term, our focus will be on Amelia Earhart, who was the first female pilot to fly over the Atlantic Ocean.

In the summer term, the children will be studying Ibn Battuta, the famous explorer.

P.E.

Tuesday and Friday

We recommend that the children have their PE kit in school all week, as they may need their kit for other lessons from time to time, such as Co-Jo missions.

Your child will need an outdoor PE kit to include a jumper, jogging bottoms and trainers in addition to their normal PE kit. Please make sure these are named. 

Please can we remind you that for all PE sessions long hair must always be tied back and all earrings MUST be removed or covered over with a plaster.

As we are a healthy school, we encourage all children to bring a named bottle into school filled only with water.

 

Homework

The homework that children are given relates to and embeds what they have been learning about in school. 

Throughout the year projects relating to work covered in class may be sent home.
