Welcome to Year 6
Please consult this page for weekly updates.
Below is a link to the Year 6 Information Evening PowerPoint:
Monday 21st September - VR Workshop
In Literacy this week, we will be beginning the new genre of descriptive writing. The children will recap their previous knowledge about the use of techniques such as similies, metaphors, personification and pathetic fallacy. They will apply these skills to a piece of descriptive writing based on our class reader: Escaping the Giant Wave.
We will be recapping the use of parenthesis and how we can show parenthesis through the use of brackets, dashes and commas.
We will continue our learning within the strand of Statistics. The children will readdress how to calculate the mean (average) from a set of data and re-embed how to present data in forms such as a pie chart.
The new list for Week 3 will also be handed out on Monday. See the link below from Spelling Frame:
The children will read passages of the class reader: Escaping the Giant Wave, to then help them access suitable comprehension-style questioning based on the passage.
The children will be immersing themselves in the over-arching topic of Natural Disasters by learning about the geography of volcanoes. We will be learning about how volcanoes form on the earth's plates, whereabouts in the world volcanoes are most-commonly formed and what happens when a volcano erupts.
The children will be learning about Forces and Materials. We will learn about the different forces that are applied to a concrete object, how forces reach a state of equilibrium and how an object will move or change shape if these forces are not balanced.
The order I will be assessing the children is as follows:
2x, 5x, 10x, 4x, 8x, 3x, 6x, 9x, 11x, 12x, 7x
They will then move onto mixed questioning, followed by division facts.
If you would like to follow the same format, then you can practise the times table that your child is being assessed on/practising to learn at home.
Please can you also ensure that your child is reading at least 10 minutes a day. Ensure they are discussing, interpreting and questioning the language of the text with you.
