Year 6

Class Page for Year 6

 We have settled in extremely well and have taken on many new responsibilities around the school, including looking after our buddies in Reception.

In class, we have started many new exciting topics, in which the children have shown a great deal of enthusiasm and are asking lots of questions to further their knowledge.

In English this term we are writing recounts, including personal recounts and a recount from a short film we have watched.  We are also writing our own spy thrillers, based on novels written by Anthony Horowitz, as well as focussing on historical fiction novels such as War Game.  After half term, we will be focussing on instructional texts and poetry.  We will also be revising grammar, spelling and punctuation rules.

Our Maths focus is on place value, calculations, measures and fractions, decimals & percentages.  The children are applying their rapid recall of times tables to these areas and using their knowledge of calculation strategies to carry out data handling tasks. 

** Remember to continue to practise your times tables Year 6, so that you can beat your Number Club time! **

Our History topic is the Vikings and the children have worked hard to research many areas of this topic, producing some fantastic art work and information texts.  We are looking forward to a visit from Hrothgar the Viking soon, which we are sure will inspire the children even more.

Try clicking on the links below to find out more at home.  See if you can research Viking beliefs and stories.

 

In Science we are focusing on how light behaves, carrying out a range of activities and investigations.

You can find lots more information using the link below.

Our spinney and orchard in the school grounds are looking beautiful; we have enjoyed incorporating this into our English work where we have described the setting using emotive vocabulary.
