STARS OF THE WEEK
I am so proud of you.
for fabulous Maths and punctuation work.
for wonderful learning in our Maths sessions.
This term we have been working very hard and we are really enjoying life in Year 6. Each day we focus on developing our skills across English and Maths. This week, in our English lessons we are focusing on learning and using a range of punctuation in our writing about "Jane Eyre." The children are really enjoying reading and sharing Jane's story and have produced some fantastic pieces of writing. This week in Maths, we have been focusing on developing our addition skills and applying our skills to successfully answer SAT questions. The children have been progressing so well with their skills and their confidence is growing everyday.
This term our cross-curricular topic this term is Extreme Earth. We are starting our topic by investigating what earthquakes are and how they are created. We are really looking forward to investigating volcanoes. In science, we are learning about Evolution and inheritance. Please feel free to research our topic at home, I really enjoy seeing what the children produce at home. This week, we are learning how animals adapt to their environment.
The children have homework each week. I give out the homework each Thursday and it needs to be handed in to me by the following Thursday. Homework is great preparation for secondary school. Please feel free to speak to me if your child has any problems with their homework. In addition to the curriculum focused homework set each week, it is very important that all the children read each evening at home too. In Year 6 many of the children prefer to read independently. Reading in Year 6 tends to be more about understanding what has been read and being able to talk about what has been read. The children in Year 6 are very confident at selecting their own books to read and can independently change their books as necessary.
PE is on Thursdays. Please make sure that the correct PE kit is worn: plain white T shirt, blue or black shorts. Blue joggers, Seven Fields sweatshirts and trainers are required for outdoor lessons.
