Welcome to 6 Neptune!
Spring Term 2019
Firstly, I would like to say thank you to everyone who has made my move to Mill Mead Primary School so welcoming. I am really excited to be here and am very much looking forward to the rest of the year with 6N.
In our English lessons the children will be exploring characterisation and more complex narrative structures whilst developing advanced reading comprehension skills and inferences about texts. They will also be writing in a variety of genres. Additionally, we will be reading Journey To The River Sea, which will help to develop their understanding of how a character's actions can be inferred from their feelings and thoughts. The setting of the text also links to our exciting Geography topic; The Amazon Basin - a region within South America!
In Maths we will be following the Maths Essentials programme and will cover a range of topics starting with order of operations, including algebra, short and long division, area and perimeter, angles and transformations (such as translation and rotation).There will also be some revision of topics previously covered as we approach the end of key stage tests in May.
In Science, the children will develop their understanding of Living Things in their Habitats. This will include the characteristics of all living organisms, classifying organisms according to their similarities and differences and practical work involving micro-organisms!
The children have made an excellent start to the new year and continue to develop as independent learners and as role models for their peers.
Please feel free to contact me or make an appointment through the office if there is anything you wish to discuss.
Mr Brewer and the Year 6 team.
