Welcome to the Summer Term 2017!
This term, our topic is 'Ancient Greece'. We will be learning about the geography of the continent and the effect of the equator on the climate, including the current problems and issues surrounding the euro. We will be looking at the diverse range of flora and fauna within the country and its many islands and how they are affected by man.
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: newspapers, interview reports and picture books. 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.
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.
KS2 Statuory Assessments take place on the week beginning 8th May 2017.
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 this week will include 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.
