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 Pentreath, class teacher. Miss Simmons works every day as the class teaching assistant and is also happy to help out in any way. Mrs Gow and Miss Arthur also work hard within our class throughout the week with us in Year 6.
This Spring term we will be looking at our new history and geography topic, 'Britain Since 1066', with a particular focus on the way families have made it through the last millenium in the United Kingdom!
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!
Throughout they year, we will have mock 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 Pentreath.
