Year 6 is an exciting year for the children as they prepare for high school and their end of year SATs tests. If you have any worries about your child or any questions about the year then please come and speak to Mr Seager, class teacher. Miss Simmons works every day as the class teaching assistant and is also happy to help out in any way. Mrs Bloomfield will also be teaching maths in class on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings.
This Spring term we will be looking at our new science and geography topic, 'Power'.
In English we will be studying different model texts to improve the structure of our writing whilst also continuing to improve both our grammar and spelling skills. We will also be developing our vocabulary by learning lots of exciting new words.
In Maths we will be continuing with the 'Big Maths Challenge' to improve our basic arithmetic skills. We will also be developing our reasoning maths skills with lots of test-style questions to show what we have learnt!
In February, we will have our next sets of practice SATs tests, to help prepare the children for the real tests in May. Any questions about SATs and testing, please come and speak to Mr Seager.
What is power? Have a look at these pictures and think about how each illustrates 'power'. Come and talk to Mr Seager about your ideas, showing your skills of inference and analysis!
