Welcome back everyone. We are all really excited at the start of this new year and look forward to achieving great things in Year 6. This year the class will be split in two, with Miss Barker and Mr Quirk having half a class each and you will be split even further for Maths and Literacy with Mr Husted having a group as well. If you have any concerns about anything we are all available at the end  of the phone for the moment.

English

Last week we read the first chapter of the Iron Man and collected a bank of ideas using our senses that described the setting.

We have already started with the opening paragraph which included three questions and a statement. Now continue by describing the setting around the Iron Man on the cliffside. Remember to use all of your senses and just focus on the setting not what the Iron Man might be doing.

Have a go at one of these comprehensions about the NHS.

Power project

This half term the project for Y6 is 'Out of this World.'

Year 6 will have a weekly spelling test.

Spellings will be given out every Thursday and the test will take place the following Thursday.

 

 

PE: Children will participate in 2 one hour P.E. sessions per week - on a Tuesday  and Friday.

 

All children require a P.E. kit to join in; this consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps/trainers.

 

 

Children will be using A.P.E within many different lessons of the curriculum. If you would like to support your children with this at home. Please click the following link A.P.E Sheet for further information.

 

Reading is a key skill that we want all children to develop. Please read with your children regularly and record this in their planner. It is important that fluent readers have the chance to read and talk about books with an adult. Please ask questions that check whether your child understands what they have read.
