Welcome to Year Six

Hello, I'm Mrs Dean (formerly Miss Dyer!) the Year 6 teacher and we are lucky enough to have Mrs Nethercott working with us too. Welcome to our class page! In Year 6, we are helping children do as well as they can academically and preparing them for the challenges of secondary school.

 

Term 1

This term in Maths we are focusing on number and calculation. We will continue to develop their problem-solving and reasoning skills through investigations and worded problems. We will also be focusing on our arithmetic skills to prepare the children for their SATs.

The children will be bringing home a range of arithmetic and problem solving questions to secure the things they know and to practise the parts that need more consolidation.

 

In Literacy we are learning to produce extended pieces of writing. We will be focusing on building a range of techniques to make our writing interesting and coherent. We are also having a big focus on presentation and handwriting.

The children will be bringing home a piece of grammar work and a short comprehension to help them secure the skills and knowledge they need. They will also bring home spellings during the week and have short tasks to complete. They will be tested each week.

 

Our science learning this term is around the properties of materials.

Term 2

In Maths, this term we are looking at fractions. They can support their learning in Maths further by consolidating their skills on Sumdog.

In Literacy, we are looking at some more exciting books such as The Nowhere Emporium and The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore.

In Enquiry we have started our exciting learning about World War 2. Any extra research or learning done at home will support everything we do in school.
