Year 6

Update for Week beginning : 24.09.2018

Maths and English:

This week in maths, children will be exploring angles. They will learn the correct use of a protractor to measure and draw angles accurately. They will also be working out missing angles based on know facts of angles within different polygons, straight lines and around a point.

In English, we are continuing our work on descriptive writing based on ‘Mortal Engines,’ with a particular focus on figurative language. We will also be looking at how to extract key information quickly and efficiently from a text.

Other curriculum news:

Our ‘When I needed a neighbour ‘ project exploring some of the issues around homelessness continues this week. We will be finding out some more statistics and facts and starting to look at the charities involved with helping so that we can begin to script and plan our documentary. We will also be undertaking some science experiments – looking at the effect of cold and heat on the human body.

In RE, we have begun to explore the Five Pillars of Islam.

General Information:

Outdoor PE will be on Tuesday afternoons when we will generally be going to Kings Park together with Year 5. Please ensure that suitable kit, including tracksuit bottoms, is in school so that we can all participate fully.

Indoor PE will usually be on Wednesdays although, this half term, as we are lucky enough to be having golf lessons with a professional, we will be doing PE on Thursday afternoons instead.

If there are any more forms and/or payment for ‘Terrific Trawling’, please return them to the school office as soon as possible.


We will be setting homework  this week and explaining to the children the expectations for completion. MyMaths will relate as much as possible to the topics we will be covering this term although there may be some flexibility according to the results of our assessments so that we are responding to the needs of the children’s learning.

Project homework will be issued on paper and will be displayed on this page next Friday.
