Welcome back Year 6,
We are looking forward to a fantastic term of learning!
Here is just some of the learning this term:
English: Weekly tasks will be uploaded each week. These will cover a range of genres and styles of writing. Handwriting tasks will be set so that children maintain their neat and joined handwriting.
Reading: Children must continue to read everyday. Log on to MyOn Online Book Library for a wide selection of books to read or listen to online. When you have completed an AR book, quiz online - Link to AR quiz. Remember to visit the Kingsnorth YouTube page to listen to a teacher read a book.
Reading Comprehension: Reading comprehensions with questions will be available on SeeSaw.
Spelling: Keep practising your spelling skills by logging in and playing spelling games on the Spelling Shed.
Maths: This term children will be continuing to improve their arithmetic skills and learning fractions, decimals and percentages skills.
It would really help to support our learning in class if you could continue to practise times tables with your children. www.timestable.co.uk Knowing these and being able to confidently recall them underpins the majority of the Maths in the Year 6 curriculum and can really boost progress.
Science: Revision of light using Oak Academy.
History and Design Technology: Later in the term we will be researching and learning about Ancient Egypt.
PE/Steps 2 Summit: It's really important that we are continuing with some moderate exercise during our lockdown. How to stay active:
- Please could you access Steps 2 Summit Training videos. You will need to use your unique logins that were handed out at the beginning of the year. You will not be able to access this on a phone. You will need a desktop or tablet.
- PE lessons take place every Friday and every day during the week beginning 8th March.
If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Miss Howard and Mrs Mobbs
