Welcome to Year 6
Hello and welcome to our class information page. We hope that you will find it useful in keeping you up to date with what we are learning in Year 6.
We have made a positive and happy start to the new term and I’m delighted to say that the children have returned after Christmas showing a keen and studious approach to their learning. We have many exciting curriculum opportunities planned over the next term and will also be preparing pupils for the SATs tests, due to be taken in May, 2019. Below you will find details of areas to be covered in each subject in the spring term. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our curriculum or your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to contact me via the school office to arrange a meeting. Thank you.
In English lessons, children will be given the opportunity to write for different audiences and purposes. Where possible, the pieces will link directly to our topic work and to quality texts.
We will continue to develop skills in spelling, punctuation and grammar in dedicated lessons and through our writing. This will include work on word classification; sentence construction; use of a range of punctuation; formal language; word families and key spelling patterns and associated rules. In class, children will also further their reading comprehension skills and develop their understanding in response to a range of texts. They will use skills in inference and deduction; make predictions; justify their opinions and find evidence to support points made.
Pupils will take part in revision sessions designed to support them in the summer reading and grammar S.A.T.s tests, during which they will be taught how to answer the full range of questions assessed.
In mathematics, we will be learning about aspects of: Number and Place Value, Fractions, Decimals and Percentages, Measurement, Geometry, Statistics, Ratio and Proportion and Algebra. Pupils will take part in additional revision sessions designed to support them in the summer arithmetic and mathematical reasoning tests.
