Can you believe how fast Summer Term has come around?
SATs are almost here! You have all worked so very hard and we are sure you will achieve great results BUT we still have 2 weeks left to go before test week and have lots of work to do.
Maths and English revision is still ongoing and our writing is focused on narratives, newspaper reports, autobiographies, biographies and persuasion. Busy eh?
This Term’s Topic is ‘Antarctica’ and we will focus on key geographical skills and understanding environmental issues such as the impact that man has on this area of the world. Please take a look at our Knowledge Organiser for this half term which can be viewed below, along with our long term plan. These will help you to see exactly what is being delivered in class in Year 6 and how you can support your child at home.
We will also send the Knowledge Organiser home with your child with key information which they will be focusing on in class. Please make sure you read through these with your child as they will be used to support their knowledge and retention as well as building on prior learning.
As well as Topic work we will be preparing our Leavers Assembly performance too later on in the term. And last but not least, we have our end of year treat to look forward to in July … so exciting!
So, what do we need to remember?
1) PE will be on Tuesday with Mr. Newby
PLEASE make sure you have FULL PE KIT in school of white T-shirt, black shorts & pumps (only trainers when outside) and be prepared for the weather (black or grey tracksuit and trainers for cold and wet days).
2) You will continue to receive homework each week as follows, to continue to revise for the upcoming tests and then to help prepare you for Year 7:
Tuesday: Reading Comprehension
Thursday: Grammar and Punctuation
Friday: Spellings & Quick Maths times tables (to learn for a test on Thursday)
To help with this, we offer a homework club every Monday and Tuesday lunchtime. This gives everyone the opportunity to ask questions about the homework and complete with our help.
3) The SATs week timetable (Week Commencing May 9th 2022) is as follows:
If you have any queries or concerns regarding test week, please pop in and see us after school. However, a letter detailing arrangements for test week will be sent out the week before which will hopefully address any of your concerns.
There will also be a letter about the end of year treat, giving you all the information you will need, nearer the time. Hopefully this will answer any questions you may have.
We’re sure we'll have a very enjoyable Term and remember - Parents & Carers, any problems, questions or concerns please feel free to pop in and see us at the end of the day.
Here's to a great Summer Term!
Mrs Weilding, Mrs Abbass and Mrs Percy.
EASTER REVISION PACKS All children have tonight brought home Easter revision homework for over the holidays. There are 3 packs - Reading, Maths and SPaG (Spelling, punctuation and grammar)
These are not intended to be onerous tasks - they should take 10 minutes per day for each of the subjects and are to help to keep what the children have learned fresh in their minds for the SATS when we return.
I will upload the question sets and the answers onto Dojo class story and the class page of the school website, so the children can check and mark their answers to identify errors and misconceptions. If there is anything they struggle with, please ask them to speak to either myself on Mrs Abbass after the holidays so we can help them.
Thank you for your support.
