YEAR 6 HOME PAGE

 

At the start of this term, our time will be largely taken up preparing for the upcoming SAT tests. The children are well prepared and I have confidence in them all to do the best that they can. Our topic this term is The Vikings, although we do have some work from the water topic which I am keen to finish, as it involves the children working in groups. Below is the timetable for the SAT tests:

 

Monday 14th May 2018

SPaG and Spelling

Tuesday 15th May 2018

English Reading

Wednesday 16th May 2018

Maths arithmetic and reasoning paper 1

Thursday 17th May 2018

Maths reasoning paper 2

 

After the SAT tests, Year 6 will be continuing with work in the classroom, but will also be lucky enough to be involved in a variety of activities outdoors. This will include an outdoor adventurous day on Friday 18th May, a walk to Castle Hill to fly their kites (which they will make in art lessons), activities in the local woods and of course the trip to Laser Zone towards the end of the year!

 

In literacy, we’ll be basing our work on 'The Arrival' by Shaun Tan. Using drama, I hope the children will really enjoy the book and be able to create some outstanding pieces of written work.

In maths, we'll be carrying out lots of different problem solving activities including: Sudoku puzzles, designing a theme park and finally planning a holiday for Miss Thomas... Not that she needs any help with that! 

 

PE continues to be on a Monday and Friday afternoon. Please encourage your child to take on the responsibility of remembering their kit themselves.
