World Book day

World Book day 1

Welcome to Year 6!

Hello 6O. Welcome to our class page. Here you can find out what we'll be learning about this term.

 

RE
Lent - Children are given opportunities to develop their knowledge of fasting, praying and almsgiving and understand they are important Lenten activities. They will examine the teaching of Jesus on these things and think about why they might be important activities for Christians today. We also explore the Church's teaching on forgiveness through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

 

 

 

 

 

Prayer: You will develop your understanding of prayer as a special way of spending time with God. You will explore the vocabulary, actions, places and aids associated with prayer and practice some meditation.

A very important part of your learning in our school is learning about and practising your faith. You will regularly be invited to be involved in the celebration of Mass and the planning of liturgies.

Collective worship 3.10pm every Thursday.

 

English

 Children will continue to study a range of grammar features: subjunctive form, modal verbs, subordinating conjunctions, prepositions, adverbs, pronouns, adding a prefix and suffix (changing the word meaning) and many more. They will be studying the writings of Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories especially the Elephant's child and using a variety of language write from the crocodile's perspective and then plan and write their own Just So story.

 

 

Maths

Place value, x and ÷ including decimals, use of + - x ÷ to solve ‘real life’ problems including money, fractions, decimals, percentages, ratio and proportion, handling data, shape and space as well as co-ordinates, working out the perimeter and area of a shape, measures including conversion of one unit to another, properties, pattern and sequences in numbers. Get those problem solving and reasoning skills ready - you will need them! Please brush up on your times tables - the quicker you can recall them, the more efficient you will be at using them to solving problems!

Children have been investigating, planning, designing, producing and then evaluating a musical instrument in D &T.

Parents please note: Maths and English homework is given weekly. The MyMaths website provides many Beat the Clock activities which the children can use to improve their mental maths skills. Spelling, reading and times tables practice should be done throughout the week.

Children should already be able to recall rapidly and accurately multiplication facts and their related division facts. Please practise with your child if they need it.

 

As you know, Year 6 children will sit end of Key Stage 2 standardised assessment tests (‘SATs’) at the beginning of Term 3 in May. Please support your child in their preparations by ensuring that they complete revision and homework assignments to their best standard and always punctually. Thank you.
