Year 6
Welcome back, after what has been a wet and cloudy summer (for most of us!)
Myself and Miss Burney are very excited to welcome you all into the heights of Year 6, and have some wonderful things planned. From practice SATs tests to pizza making work shops; daily arithmetic practice to Lowry art workshops and comprehensions to the daily mile!
Our first topic will be Leisure and Entertainment in the 20th Century and will be looking at how Film, (Manchester) Music and Holidays have changed as a result of technology.
In MAths we are starting with extending our understanding of Place Value, and will be basing our work around 'Power Maths' - which focuses on deepening understanding and mastery.
In Literacy we will be basing our writing on the work of Ted Hughes and his use of figurative language, to describe what we can see from our classroom window.


Learning Goals
The Curriculum overview in the E-Bag will give a detailed breakdown of what we are covering this term.
Literacy will be focusing on figurative language and Narrative/poetry - learning a range of skills and then applying in writing.
Maths is heavily focused on Place Value, arithmetic and decimals/fractions.
IN Topic we are looking at Leisure and Entertainment, and science is Living Things.
We are learning about a lot of World Religions; in particular the theme of ;should money be given to Art and Architecture or charity?'
Homework
In year 6, you are expected to read every day
In addition to this is there will be:
Monday: Spelling activity
Tuesday: Arithmetic/maths investigation
Wednesday: Comprehension/Grammar
Thursday: Spellings/Times Tables
