Weekly Update

Friday 23rd September 2022

 

Dear Year 6 Parents and Carers,

 

We have had a lovely week writing our diaries from the perspective of Freddie the WWI recruit. We enjoyed holding the interviews for the children’s roles and responsibilities, we were very impressed by the quality of the written applications.

 

In maths, we will progress onto division. We have planned in some lessons where we are revisiting short division before we continue to long division. This is a unit that some children find challenging, please can we encourage children to practise their times tables – it really helps with expanded division methods.

In English, we will finish our diaries and publish in neat. We will then complete a hot task (the children must independently complete a diary) to demonstrate the learning and understanding of the genre.

In foundation, we will be learning about the significance of poppies, why people choose to wear them, and the link they have to WWI. We will then sketch poppies in pencil and colour using oil pastels.

 

A few notices:

Homework – Our first maths homework has been handed out. Next week we will start the full timetable of homework. We recommend between 30 and 40 minutes on homework. If homework is completed in less time, checking answers and some free reading time is always a good idea. Please can we encourage all children that require practise with times tables to be using TT Rockstars regularly. The timetable is:

Monday – arithmetic practise.

Tuesday – reading comprehension / SPAG practise.

Wednesday – maths that is linked to the learning in class

 

Coats – As the weather worsens and the days grow colder, can we please remind all children that coats are necessary at school.

PSHE – Next week we will be learning about the potential risks of drugs, both legal and illegal. The unit of learning is statutory and is a necessary part of the curriculum - we will handle the material sensitively.

Bikeability – the deadline has now passed to sing up for bikeability. If you have not signed up but intend to, please contact the office or your class teacher directly, we need to know soon.

Monday 3rd October – Bumblebees.

Monday 10th October – Dragonflies.

Monday 17th October – Fireflies.

 

Thank you to all who came to the Year 6 information evening, the slides will be available on the website soon.
