Year 6 2018 to 2019
SPRING 1 NEWSLETTER
I hope you have all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year relaxing and enjoy time with family.
Spring 1 is going to be just as busy as Autumn 2; we have lots of exciting learning and we will be looking for the children to demonstrate their very best behaviour, effort and attitude throughout their final year at primary school.
Boosters will be continuing this half term and the first session will be Thursday 17th January 3pm-4:00pm. The focus this half term is Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.
Our topic this half term is ’A Child’s War’. A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. Read the diary of Anne Frank. ‘Make do and mend’. Delve deep into a bygone era, when loose lips sank ships.
Throughout the year we will be focusing on the basic skills across the curriculum. We will be encouraging the children to continue developing skills such as handwriting, reading, spelling and mathematics. In
English this half term the children will be producing a diary entry based on evacuation and reading ’The boy in the striped pjs’. In maths the focus will be on measures, algebra and shape.
The children will have a double session of PE the following week. The children will also complete the daily mile each afternoon. Please note the PE day is on a Friday.
In Year 6 home learning will be issued on a Friday and expected back into school the following Friday. It is important that the children complete their reading sheet as each class is in competition with each other. (Y6 have won a number of times!) Children are also expected to practice their spellings (spellingshed) and their times tables (Times table rock stars). At the bottom of the reading sheet is a section for them to now complete how many times they have practiced these.
Thank you for your support.
