This term has a History focus. We will be reading Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll in our English sessions. 

We will be using our English sessions to focus on specific writing ideas to write WW2 based texts such as postcards, narratives and non-fiction texts.

Reading

This term in reading we will be drawing on the strengths of our History curriculum. During our whole class reading sessions, we will be touching upon our English text in more detail, as well as broadening our knowledge upon WW2 by looking at non-fiction texts.

How can you help at home?

Reading:

Children are expected to read at home at least five times each week for fifteen minutes.  At least one of these times needs to be with an adult but please read more often with your child if you are able. Children are expected to write the date of the read, the book they are reading and the pages they have read in that day. Please ensure that you check and sign reading records each week.

Reading comprehension question stems can be found here. 

A list of recommended reads for Y6 can be found here. 

 

Spelling:

At the beginning of the term, the children brought home a list of Term 1 spellings. Children will be tested each Friday on the spellings. They will also have a meanings test, where they have to match up meanings. Children are encouraged to practise their spellings on Spelling Shed as often as they can.

Maths:

By Year 6, the children should be confident with all times table facts so constant practice at home will help to embed this. Children are encouraged to practise maths facts using their Maths Shed log in, as often as possible. 

The children will be continuing with Maths Planets this year and will carry on from their end point in Year 5.  There are sample papers on the maths page of the website to give you an idea of what each stage will look like. Please encourage your child to practise their maths facts at least three times per week. If your child is stuck on a level for more than four weeks, then we will intervene at school.
