Welcome to Year Six

Hello, I'm Miss Dyer the Year 6 teacher and we are lucky enough to have Mrs Nethercott working with us Mon to Wed. Welcome to our class page!

We have got off to a fantastic start to the year. The children have settled in well and they are being brilliant role models for the rest of the school.

 

Term 1

 

This term in Maths we are focusing on place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We are hoping to secure the knowledge we have and push ourselves to learn more.

Each week the children will bring home a range of arithmetic questions to remind them of the things they know and to practise the parts they need to secure.

 

In Literacy we have completed a week on poetry and they performed a fantastic poem in assembly. We are also working on report writing and creating creepy tales. We are also working hard on our comprehension skills and improving our spelling.

Each week the children will bring 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 enquiry question this term is: Are there any species left to discover?

We have enjoyed learning about how animals adapt in the winter and how birds beaks have adapted depending on the food they eat.

Term 2

 

This term in Maths we are focusing on fractions and developing their problem-solving and reasoning skills. Each week the children will bring home a range of arithmetic questions to remind them of the things they know and to practise the parts they need to secure.

 

In Literacy we are developing our ability to write extended pieces of writing, including narrative and non-fiction. The children are pushing themselves to use more challenging vocabulary and interesting sentence structures.

Each week the children will bring 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.

Term 3 

 

This term in Maths we are focusing on decimal, percentages and converting between different units. We will continue to develop their problem-solving and reasoning skills through investigations and worded problems.

Each week the children will bring home a range of arithmetic questions to remind them of the things they know and to practise the parts they need to secure. By the end of this term the children will have been taught everything on the arithmetic homework so we would like the children to have a go at every question.

 In Literacy we are developing our ability to write extended pieces of writing. We will be focusing on narrative and how the different parts fit together to create the most interesting stories we can. The children will continue to challenge themselves by using more challenging vocabulary and interesting sentence structures as well as develop their characterisation.

Each week the children will continue to bring 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 enquiry question this term is: What is the best way to get fit?

We will be learning about: how the human body works; how diet, exercise and drugs affects our bodies and looking into healthy lifestyles. This term we will be merging our Science, PSHE, PE and Art together to explore these questions further.
