Homework and PE Days 

Homework is given out every Friday and needs to be handed in by Wednesday. Please help to motivate your children to complete their homework as the tasks will be linked to learning they have recently completed in school. 

Children should be reading at least 3 times a week and writing in their reading record. Reading Records are checked every Friday and children are rewarded with raffle tickets. We have recently drawn the raffle prize draw from Autumn 1 and are very excited to see who wins in Autumn 2.

PE is on a Wednesday - children may come to school in their PE Kit (white T-shirt, black shorts and black pumps). As it gets colder, please ensure your children are wearing layers and have joggers or leggings. 

Year 6 Curriculum 

In Year 6, we have had a very exciting Autumn Term learning all about America, the slave trade and the triangular trade. In our Writing, we started the year writing free verse poems before reading our story 'Oh, Freedom!' and writing a diary entry, character and setting description. We learnt how to effectively use figurative language and build upon description with our senses. We are currently drafting a newspaper report and are very eager to share these with you all. 

In Maths, we have consolidated our learning of place value looking at numbers up to 1 billion. Furthermore, we have moved our learning on and recapped factors, multiples and learnt new skills including BIDMAS. Year 6 are currently working on their knowledge of fractions which will be taught until Christmas.

Excitingly, in Theme, we have learnt all about the Triangular Trade, what countries this involved and the treatment of black people through our history. We linked our learning to our class text and focussed on the geographical features of Alabama. 

In Science, we have been extending our knowledge of light and learning about the function of an eye, understanding how we see and consolidating our previous learning through Do It Now Tasks.
