Welcome to Oak Class!
The year 6 class page!
Welcome to the final term in year 6! This half term Oak Class will learn about rivers as part of their topic based learning. Thank you to all of the children that have sent in fantastic pieces of homework to kick-start the rivers topic. They were creative, artistic and full of interesting facts!This topic continues with a geography focus and will enable the children to learn about rivers across the globe with specific focuses upon: their origins, their uses, the habitats that they provide and their individuality.
The week beginning Monday 14th May is the statutory assessment testing week that is taken by all year 6 children as part of the national curriculum. Please try to avoid being absent during this week where at all possible.
We are very pleased with how hard all children have worked since September and are delighted at the progress that has been made in all areas of the curriculum.
This half term, in maths, the children will be focusing upon the following areas:
Data handling, number problems using the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division), measurement, shape and time.
Homework- will continue to be levelled questions until after the SAT's.
Our focus in English this half term will be on the following areas:
Diary writing, recounts, explanations, play scripts and specific focus upon spelling, punctuation and grammar techniques.
Booster groups for maths (problem solving) and reading comprehension will continue to take place on Wednesdays.
P.E. lessons take place on a Tuesday and Wednesday but please ensure that P.E. kits are in school all week as sometimes the days change to accommodate the curriculum.
This term, children will be asked to learn a weekly list of spellings. However, we no longer require spelling sentences to be completed. Maths homework will be given out on sheets and should be completed on the sheets.
As usual, homework will be set on a Thursday and should be completed by the following Wednesday.
We are very much looking forward to our final term together, If you have any questions at
all please feel free to pop in and see us.
Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Raynor
