Year 6 Transition

During our maths lessons we will be starting the term with shape. Please see the maths page for suggested support you can give your child at home.

We can’t wait to take you to the land of Narnia for or English text, ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe ‘ by C.S.Lewis. The children will be studying the text and producing many pieces of writing based on the book. Who knows, they may even get to sample some hot chocolate and Turkish Delight when they meet the White Witch!

During the afternoons, the children will be developing their histroical skills and knowledge by studying World war Two in Autumn one and then The Vikings in Autumn two. For Science, we will be studying the circulatory system and how exercise can keep us healthy. We will be recreating the work of Monet and studying Impressionism in Art.

In the back of your children reading diary you will find their login details for Times Tables Rock Stars and Google Classroom. All homework will be set on there, but if you struggle accessing at home, the children will be given time to complete it in school. We can’t wait to set the children times tables and reading challenges which they will be able to access from home!

 

 

Please could we remind you that spellings are are in the back of the reading diaries for the half term and also on Google Classrooms. Children will be tested on the spelling patterns on a Friday. There is an expectation to read at least 3 times a week. Let’s be the year group with the highest word count this year!

We are also looking forward to seeing the pupils develop their swimming skills from Friday 24th September onwards. Information will be provided to parents, but contact the Year 6 teachers with any questions.
