Welcome to Year 6, Spring Term 2017 

 

 

Our writing focus for the term is the correct use of punctuation, writing clearly constructed sentences and paragraphs based around given themes. We will have a strong focus on writing for the next two terms, as this is a hugely important skill that the children need to practice regularly in order to apply it effectively across their curriculum work.

In maths,  we will be focussing on fractions, decimals and percentages, and looking at different aspects of the values of fractions, percentages and decimals , making comparisons between them, calculating with them and finding fractions and percentages of amounts. We will  completing different challenges based around this.

We are strongly continuing our focus on mindsets, and continue to actively promote the earning of tokens for fantastic learning behaviour. We are also spending lots of time discussing targets with the children and sharing our learning intentions so that the children have a context for their work

  • Reading - regular reading at home is very important. Please aim to read at least three times a week. Reading records need to be signed by an adult. Reading record books are a quick and easy way to communicate with us if you have any queries or concerns.  

  • Times Tables - we will be learning the all times tables this year. Practice as often as you can at home - we will be practising every day in school! You can also practise your maths skills using MyMaths. Activities are set for the term that directly support the work that children are doing in class. A letter is sent out at the beginning of term with details of how to log into the website and how to log into 'My Portal' using your unique username and password.  

  • Spelling - it can really help your child if they do regular spelling practice at home to support the work they are doing in class.
