Welcome to the Year 6 page and to the learning in Spring 2.
Assalamu alaikum and welcome back to Spring Term 2.
This term the children will continue to work towards their SATs tests which are in May. The SATs tests include an arithmetic test and two maths reasoning papers (problem solving) as well as a grammar, punctuation and spelling test (GPS) and a reading comprehension test.
Please continue to encourage your children to complete their CGP books and other homework. Your children should practise Maths and English skills everyday to have the maximum exposure to different types of questions. The IXL website provides a range of questions with support where required. The children each have their own log in ( please see me if there are any issues with these).
In English we will continue to read a classic text
‘Tom’s Midnight Garden’ (the graphic novel version). We will focus on grammar and vocabulary which will improve the children’s literacy skills. We will write letters, documentary scripts, poetry and persuasive writing. We will also read Street Child with an emphasis on narrative writing.
In maths we will learn about averages and expand the children’s knowledge of line graphs, bar and pie charts .
Once these have been completed we will begin our revision across a range of topics.
Year 6 will take part in the science day at Iqra which will form part of the activities for British Science Week. This year the theme is Our Diverse Planet.
Year 6 will be building on their coding skills by using Scratch programming. They will use this coding to solve maths problems as well as design their own maths problems
Year 6 have P.E on Thursdays. Please ensure your children comes to school in their PE Kit
