Welcome to Year 6 Class!
Summer term is finally upon us and there are lots of things to look forward to in Year 6: SATs which will take place in the week of 14th May; a post SATs treat which the children help to organise; KNEX design challenge; BMX Champion Mike Mullen’s growth mind-set talk and workshop; our final playleader’s training session; the Isle of Wight residential and our end of year production. Wow. What a packed way to end term (and I haven’t even mentioned the sporting events or the leavers' assembly).
Within maths we continue to work hard with revision sessions based on units that we have covered throughout the year. After SATs we will be looking at problem solving and ‘real world’ maths such as reading timetables, budgeting and finances.
We have started a new literacy unit based on a persuasive text called ‘Don’t go out after dark’, which the children have been thoroughly enjoying. There will also be some opportunities to do some reflective writing on their years at primary school and how they feel about their move to secondary.
In other areas we will be having a fun-filled Science week after SATs full of investigations and write-ups around our themes light and electricity. We are also planning on teaching some cooking sessions to help the children make their very own pizza and pasta in the hope that they may even cook it at home for you. In PE we will be going swimming on Tuesday afternoons and will be learning Kwik Cricket skills and rules during our Thursday session.
The 6N teaching staff would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support over the Easter holidays with the children’s revision plans. Please ensure they are nice and calm in the run up to SATs and that they have somewhere quiet to revise or complete home learning.
Please keep checking the website for homework, and follow us on Twitter if you aren't yet doing so - this will give you an excellent insight to all of the learning that 6 Neptune, and the rest of the school, get up to.
If you have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via e-mail or, alternatively, you could contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
