Summer Term 2019

Our Topic this term Is The Railways

We will be exploring how the railways first started in the UK and learning up to present day, including the different locomotives. We will also be visiting the Heritage Centre in Crewe to have a tour of the site and an insight into how signal boxes work, as well as a ride on the minature railway.

In English, we will be continuing to read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, as well as focussing on creative writing. Year 6 will be completing 3 weeks of English revision at the start of the term.

 

In Maths we will be focussing on Revision work for Year 6, including Algebra and Shape, Space and Measures. Arithmetic skills will continue until the test are over.

There will still be a focus on grammar and spelling skills. These will be delivered through discrete lessons focussing on the skills that children will use during their English writing lessons.

In RE this term we are learning about Christianity and the two topics for this term are: Discipleship and Creation

Important reminders!

Every Tuesday afternoon the children undertake PE lessons, which this term includes: rugby and netball. The children need to have their PE kits in school every week. This should include: a white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers (not pumps). The children will also need a warm tracksuit for the winter months. There will be a register kept for children bringing inthe correct kit.

Year 6 SATS

The test begin on Monday 13th May and finish on Thursday 16th May. Children will be completing 3 weeks of revision activities in school leading up to the tests. I did send home a letter regardiong after school revision groups that children can attend. if you did not receive this letter, please ring school and I can send another copy home. Home work will continue up until the week of the tests. After this, Year 6 will not not have weekly homework.

Once the tests have been completed J3 will be completing a set of different weekly challenges which will include:

Escape Room Challenges
