Welcome to the Year 6 section of the school website. Please see below for the key information regarding what we are doing and learning in class and any key resources that may be useful to assist in learning away from school.
This half term we will focusing closely on our spelling, punctuation and grammar to help us prepare for May and also to help improve our writing.
We will be using digital literacy to work on our narrative writing- in particular, tension and suspense.
In the lead up to Christmas we will be looking at a selection of popular Christmas TV adverts and having a go at writing our own Christmas Advert scripts.
In maths we will be having a big focus on fractions this whole half term. Comparing, ordering, adding, subtracting dividing and multiplying! Phew!
Creative links this term is geography. We will be going on a local visit to conduct our field research and ultimately writing reports to help the council decide whether or not it would be a good idea to build new houses in the local area.
In Science we will be building on our knowledge from year 4 and looking at electricity and circuits. We will be conducting our own scientific experiments to see if our predicitons were correct.
Homework this year will be designed to prepare us for the exams in May so there will be a selection of maths, reading and grammar work to do weekly as well as the usual times tables practice, regular reading and spellings.
It is vital that children are completing this homework and we really appreciate your support at home.
If children are unable to complete homework at home they will be invited to a lunchtime homework club.
Below are documents that contain the KS2 key spelling words. These are the words that have been looked at within class spelling sessions and can be used at home to help develop spelling knowledge. The children need to be using these words correctly in their writing to reach the expected standard in year 6.
Try and practise your timestables as regulary as possible, they are one of the most important skills in maths. Below is the link for Timestables Rock Stars.
