Welcome to the Spring Term in Year 6.
The children are making good progress as they are taught Maths and English in three sets every morning. In addition, SATs boosters continue to take place in the ICT Suite every morning. There has been a reduction in the number of pupils attending and we would love to see all pupils registered attending. Year 6 teachers work closely with the Booster staff to ensure that the curriculum taught in the classroom is supported by work in Boosters. If your child cannot attend Booster sessions, Year 6 have subscriptions to PiXL APPs, ‘Sumdog’, ‘Active Learn’ and ’StudyZone.tv’ where children can access a wealth of Maths and English online games and videos. Please take advantage of these. Check that your child knows their user name and password for each of these. We can give reminders to pupils where necessary.
In English we have begun reading a new novel, 'Trash' by Andy Mulligan. Set on a dumpsite in Rio de Jeneiro, Brazil, this is a rags to riches adventure story full of action and suspense.
This term we have launched the International Primary Curriculum in Year 6. Currently the pupils are studying Being Human. They will learn that their body is design ed to help them breath, move, eat, respond, reproduce and live. They will then investigate how the different parts of the body function and how we are different from other animals.
This term we will hold a KS2 SAT meeting for parents and look forward to sharing information and parent support helps.
If you need any information or advice please feel free to come and speak to a member of staff.
Thank you for your help and support,
The Year 6 team.
