Spring 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, ‘Frozen Kingdoms’ where we will learn all about the polar regions, exploring the differences and similarities between the Arctic circle and the Antarctic circle. We will also learn about classifying animals, and create our own key to classify Arctic animals. Finally, we will be researching famous explorers and looking into what happened to the Titanic!

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 ‘Orphans of the Tide’ by Struan Murray – a wonderful book about adventure and magic!

As writers, we will be focusing on creating our own finding tale, incorporating suspense techniques into our writing. Then in Maths, we will be converting fractions, decimals and percentages, as well as looking at the area and perimeter of shapes.

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.
