Year 6

Update for Week beginning : 31.03.2017

English and Maths information:

In Maths and English this week, we have been undertaking our last round of practice assessments. This has allowed us to see exactly where the children are at and create a more personalised learning experience in the run up to the SATs in May. The children have also been exploring the features of biographies in English, with a view to writing their own next week.

Other curriculum news:

This week in project, a professional artist visited Year 6 to create some impressive fossil art. The children learnt about the fossilisation process and different types of rock and they had a fantastic time creating their own 3D ‘fossililsed’ insects. Children have also been researching dinosaur statistics to create their own set of dinosaur Top Trump cards.

General Information:

After Easter, we will be thinking about transition to secondary school. We have already begun by talking to children about the importance of completing their home learning on time and discussing the possible consequences of poor behaviour and incomplete homework at secondary school.

Please note: spellings will be given on a Wednesday and tested the following Wednesday.

Home learning for this week:

  1. Two revision tasks on MyMaths due Thursday 6th April.
  2. For English, bring in research about a celebrity of your choice (this could be sporting, musical, historical etc.) ready for writing your own biographies in class Wednesday 5th April.
