Our topic this term in 6B is “Make your Mark” This topic lends itself well to a cross curricular approach, where aspects of Art, Geography and History, weave through the subject matter. In Science, we will be learning about animals including humans, evolution and inheritance. PE continues to take place on Wednesday afternoons, please ensure your child always has their named PE kit at school.
In Year 6 this term, our focus is on preparing the children for the SATs tests which take place in May. We will be concentrating on Maths and Literacy and the children will be completing practice test papers in these subjects.
Homework will begin to be set on a daily basis with the children having an opportunity to discuss any issues they are having the day before it is due in. This is part of the transition arrangements to secondary school, where more regular homework will be expected.
Use of film in year 6: In literacy work we may be using a variety of films, in whole or in part, to enhance learning. Some of these films may be rated as PG. If you do not wish your child to view a PG film in class please let us know.
Help from home: The children will be bringing their completed test papers home, it would be helpful if you could encourage the children to use these as revision aids. Also, please continue to support your child by ensuring they are reading regularly at home. This will help them with comprehension skills as well as improving their writing.
