This half term we will be developing our reading comprehension skills; focusing on using quotes and evidence from the text in our answers. Also, we will be revising the grammatical terms for Year 6 and practising spellings from the Year 6 Word List.
After SATs, we will be looking at the book ‘Tuesday’ by David Wiesner and, using our knowledge of text types, writing stories, newspaper reports and poetry based on it.
This half term, we will be revising the main topics of Maths: Number, Shape, Measure and Statistics. Using our reasoning and problem solving skills, we will solve word problems and check our work thoroughly. Also, we will be developing our arithmetic and fluency skills, making sure our answers are clear and accurate.
From our work on the book ‘Tuesday’ by David Wiesner, we will be creating various art work and making frog cushions in Design Technology.
In our Science lessons, we will look at the life cycle and habitats of various animals including frogs.
In Computing, we will be using revision sites to extend and develop our Maths and English knowledge before creating animated Power Point presentations on frogs.
Mindfulness colouring will also be a focus for Year 6 this half term.
