Year 6 Downloads and Resources:
It’s Term 3 already! We hope you all had a good Christmas and are ready for another term full of learning. In English, we are reading The Lady of Shalott. In Maths, we will be thinking about decimals and percentages before moving on to algebra. In the afternoons, we will be continuing our work on light before moving on to electricity in Science. In Geography, we will be doing map work. We will be starting by locating continents and countries on a map before moving on to grid references.
Welcome to Year 6! Things might look and feel a little bit different at school but we’ve still got lots of exciting learning to do. If you have any questions or concerns about the year please get in touch via Class Dojo or ring the school.
We have lots to do in the first term. Our Maths foci for the term will be place value, times tables and basic arithmetic skills. In English we will be reading ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ by Michael Morpurgo; it’s an exciting story about a boy surviving in the face of adversity. In the afternoons, as Autumn approaches and our gardens begin to lose some of their colour, we’ll be looking at plants and their flowers. We will think about their different parts and how each part is involved in the creation and dispersal of seeds.
Don’t forget that homework and spellings will be handed out on a Friday and PE will be on a Wednesday (for Mr Walton’s class) and Friday (for Mrs Pook’s class).
