Summer Term 1 (2022)
Welcome to Year 6
Welcome back Year 6! The door for Year 6 will be opened at 8:45am and will close at 8.55am for registration. Please ensure children arrive on time to ensure that they can settle into the school day successfully.
This term, we will be starting our new Cornerstones project, ‘Tomorrow’s World’ where we will learn all about how technology has changed over time. We will look into the different ways of communicating using technology and research significant inventors from the past and how they have shaped the world today.
Reading continues to be an important part of the day. Please ensure that your child reads at home daily and that this is recorded in their reading record. Your child’s reading book and reading record need to be sent into school daily to enable us to read at school, change books and monitor your child’s reading progress. A mixture of them reading to an adult as well as reading independently is encouraged in order for children to develop their fluidity and comprehension. During this half term, we will be reading ‘Wonder’ by RJ Palacio– a heartwarming story about a ten-year-old boy named August Pullman.
As writers, we will be creating our own persuasive letters and exploring how to write emails for different purposes. Then in Maths, we will be learning about coordinates, translating and reflecting shapes, data handling and exploring graphs.
Physical Education- All PE will be taught outside and this term we will be focusing on tennis. Our PE lessons will be on a Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your child has a warm PE in school each week.
Remember to check the Home Learning section every Friday to practise your spellings and times tables for your tests the following week.
