This week in Year 6 (11/9/17)

This week the children have been getting a little taste of what SAT’s week will be like by having a go at past papers. The results of these will give us a base line to work from and enable us to group children according to their needs.

As part of our Crime and Punishment project, in English the children have started writing a non-chronological report about Crime and Punishment though the Ages and this will continue next week. We have also started a time line showing when different punishments were in force.

Our maths focus this coming week will be the four operations and making sure the children have a secure formal method they can apply to problems. We will be starting with addition and subtraction.

Dates for your diary.

Tuesday 26th September 6:00 pm. PGL meeting. Please make sure you child is represented as important information about the visit will be given out.

Wednesday 27th September 9:00 am.  ‘Drop everything and read.’ After a short presentation, we would love you to bring your favourite book up to the classroom to share with your child and friends.

Year 6 Team

Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!  It has been so pleasing to see how well the children have returned to school and settled into their new classes. We clearly have a very busy year ahead and this positive attitude to school is just what is needed.

This week we have started reading Holes by Louis Sachar as the beginning to our first project on Crime and Punishment and next week we will be starting the project by looking at the different types of punishments that were metered out over the ages.                                

The children have bought home a guide to Secondary Schools this week, showing when the Open Evenings are and also the date by when you must have applied for your child’s place.

A few reminders.

PE is on Monday and Friday and this term will be outside, weather permitting.

Wednesday 27th September – There will be a reading information session at 9:00 and then time to visit the classes. Feel free to bring a book you enjoyed as a child to share with your son/daughter.

Have a good weekend,

Year 6 Team.
