Welcome to the Spring Term 2018!
This term, our topic is 'Andes to Amazon'. We will be learning about life in South America: it's geographical features and how this effects everyday life.
In our English sessions, our daily Accerelated Reading sessions will help us to improve our reading skills, especially alongside additional comprehension sessions. In Talk For Writing, we will be learning about a range of genres: biographies, description, explanation texts and diary entries. We will be learning about grammar, punctuation and spelling and how to use this accurately within our writing - linking to the requirements at the end of the key stage 2.
In Maths, we are focusing towards are SATs assessments in May. We will be revising about place value, negative numbers and the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will be practising our fluency, reasoning and problem solving using these operations too. Daily mental maths sessions and weekly arithmetic papers will also continue.
Most importantly, we will be looking at solving multi-step word problems and identifying how to solve worded problems.
In Science, we will be working scientifically in our lessons involving and investigating Light - in particular, we will be focusing on how light travels and can be manipulated for our own benefit.
Year 6 have had a great week taking part in a range of science activities. They had the opportunity to work with Bruce Robinson a Science Specialist, have a lesson with Plymouth University students, a full Science House Day- making marble runs and an assembly with Andy Robinson a Science, Technology, Engerneering and Mathematics Officer. Have a look at some of our photos and videos of the week.
KS2 Statuory Assessments take place on the week beginning 14th May 2018.
We cannot authorise any holidays during this time and please ensure your child attends school everyday in the run up to this important time.
Homework continues to be an integral part of our learning experience in Year 6. All children are set homework tasks on a Friday, which are then to be handed in by the following Friday. Homework always includes a reading comprehension task, a maths-related task which links to learning in class that week, a grammar-related task which links to learning in class that week and 10 weekly spellings. Please also ensure that your child reads at home at LEAST 3 x weekly.
All children are expected to complete their homework. If a child fails to hand in their homework, it is expected they catch up on their work in their free time in school.
