Year 6 Spring Term 2023

Welcome back from the holidays - We've got loads going on and lots to cover this term.  I hope you are all ready!  A lot of my favourite topics and genres come up during the Spring term so this is always my favourite, and I hope you enjoy it too!

Our topics for this term are as follows:

Maths: Ratio, Algebra, Decimals, Statisitcs, APV (Area, Perimeter and Volume), FDP (Fractions, Decimals and Percentages)

English: Adventure Stories, Newspaper Reports, Diaries/Recounts, Letters

Geography: South America

History: Migration to Britain                        

Our PE days are currently Thursday and Friday and our current topics are golf and dance.  Please note that some PE sessions must take place outside, even if it raining.  Bringing spare socks, tshirt, trainers and a towel is strongly encouraged.

Each week, one member of the class will prepare and deliver a short presentation on a topic of their choice.  The last two years, we had a very wide range of topics: Poland, the lower half of a horse's leg, ways the world could end, Phil Foden, cricket... The choices are endless!  

Spelling will be set as per usual, Friday to Thursday.  A first attempt test will take place on a Friday and a re-test will be given on a Thursday. See how much you can improve, and let's get learning those common exception words too!

Maths homework is set Friday to Friday.  This alternates between MyMaths (logins should remain the same as last year!) and mental arithmetic books.  

English homework now runs from a Tuesday to a Monday.  This is to be completed in the usual orange reading journal. Let's also make sure we are all reading at home; our class library is huge and is added to each month so there is bound to be something you like in there!  If you aren't sure what to read, I will do my best to help you choose something I think you will like.

You will now have weekly revision set - this is set on the same days as the English and Maths, with the same deadlines.
