Welcome back to term 2!
In Year 6, the team is Miss Weiner, Mrs Cavill, Mrs Seagar, Mrs Stone and Mrs Richards.
Thank you for all those who supported our poetry afternoon. The children really enjoyed reciting their work. You will be proud to know that our entries to the poetry competition have won us a fifty pound voucher.
This term, we will be continuing our science and geography topics as well as getting our teeth into Harry Potter. This will provide us with lots of opportunities for creative writing where we will look to strengthen our skills in using relative and subordinating clauses, expanded noun phrases as well as using a wide variety of sentence openers to bring interest and detail to our work. Further interest will be created through the use of a wider range of punctuation including dashes and semi-colons.
In maths this term, we will be focusing on all things fractions including multiplying, dividing, adding, subtracting, converting, ordering, simplifying and finding equivalence with percentages and decimals. Times tables completely underpin this work so please continue to practise them regularly with your child.
Our P.E. days will remain on Wednesdays and Fridays. The children will be doing netball and street dance in these sessions.
