Summer Term

As you are aware, the children will be completing their SATs this term.  After the SATs are over, we will be continuing our learning in the foundation subjects.  We will be focusing on the Mayan Civilisation during the summer term.  Not only will we be studying this, we will also be preparing for our end of year performance!

 

English 
We will be studying the book ''Wolf Brother' by Michelle Paver.  Wolf Brother is a complex book that uses vocabulary and sentence structures that will prepare the children for their learning in year 7.

 

Maths

We will be conducting a range of maths investigations.

 

Science
Our Science topics this term will be about light and fossils and evolution. 
 
History
This term, we will be looking at the Mayan Civilisation and the impact this had on today's society.
Art
During the summer we will complete Mayan art - body art, cave paintings, patterns and sculptures and create props for the year 6 production.

 

 
PE
In PE this term, we will be focusing on core skills and endurance and preperation for the sports day.

The school PE kit is:
A white or green t-shirt
Black or green shorts
Black or green joggers
Black or green jumper
Suitable footwear. (This may change depending on the focus for the term but it is a pair of plimsolls for indoor PE and trainers for outdoor PE.)

 

For some games activities, your child may be asked to bring other equipment such as shin pads and long socks. Where necessary, we will provide mouth guards.

Children may bring in roll-on deodorant. No sprays please.

 
RE
In RE this term, we will be looking at God - big questions ans Christian's relationship with the environment.
 
Expectations
In our classroom we try to inspire a love of learning. We aim to provide a creative and interesting environment where children actively participate.
 
Year 6 is where your children learn to be more independent in preparation for secondary school. This year we will try to encourage your child to become self-motivated and learn organisational skills.
 
Homework
Homework is set on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. 
 
Homework is explained to the pupils when it is set and they are given opportunities to speak to us before the due date if they are experiencing difficulties. If homework is not handed in on a Wednesday morning, your child will be asked to stay in to complete it during lunchtime. If your child has not been able to do their homework for some reason we do appreciate the children explaining this to us themselves.
 
Children will also be given revision books in Mathematics and English which they can use to help them with their homework and use independently if there are any areas they have found difficult.
 
Reading
In school there are regular reading sessions and they will read with us during a group guided reading session once a week. We have asked the children to keep a record of any books they are reading and to make a note of their thoughts and feelings and of any interesting words and phrases. These reading records need to be in school daily and they will be checked every Wednesday when their homework is handed in. There is an expectation that children read at least 3x per week.

The SATs
The SATs will take place during the week beginning 13th May 2019. These tests will help provide us, their secondary school and yourselves with the level that your child has achieved in English and Mathematics. The children will sit a series of tests which assess their ability in reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation and mathematics. There are no longer national test for writing and science as these levels are based on teacher assessment.
Alongside these tests, we will also produce our own teacher assessments in all areas which sit alongside the test results.
 
Snack time
Please ensure that you provide your child with a bottle of water (preferably with a sports cap) and a piece of fruit each day.
 
Permission to walk/cycle home
If you wish your child to walk home or leave the classroom without adult supervision, we must have this in writing otherwise we are not happy to let the children leave alone.
 
Communication
If you have any concerns about your child or are worried about anything, please feel free to come and speak to us, preferably at the end of the school day or, if this is difficult, we are always happy to return a phone call.
 
We would encourage that children come and speak to us themselves if they feel it is of a nature that they could resolve. This is one of the ways in which we help the children prepare for their transition to secondary school.
