Welcome to Year 6!
After a fast paced and very successful start to the year, Year 6 are now studying the inspirational topic of Campaigners for Change. We look at how the world has been changed for the better by various individuals and groups of people who have made sacrifices for the common good. See the curriculum jigsaw for more detail.
The texts we are studying this term include Tolpuddle Boy, Opal Plumstead and Once by Moriss Gleitzman. Year 6 will be delving into some hard hitting topics but we are looking forward to the thought provoking in depth discussions which will follow. A trip to the People’s History Museum in Manchester will allow us to bring some of the discussions to life as well as help us get a feel for the life and times of people gone by. As part of our work commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day we will be holding an assembly in class which family and friends are welcome to.
Times tables and Number work is a focus for our numeracy work this term. Please see www.mathswatchvle.com/mathswatchprimary for model lessons and further examples of the work we do. Further info regards PIXL and SAT’s planning for homework and timetable changes will follow later this term.
Please ensure your child completes weekly homework tasks including times tables and spelling test revision as well as reading journals. If you have any further questions or require any information please do not hesitate to contact Mr Ryan.
