Dear Year 6,
Thanks for such a briliant SATs week. I have thoroughly enjoyed building the robots with you and can't wait to program them.
Welcome to Class 1
This will happen on 26th June. Please contact us if you've any queries.
We will start this year considering the numbers system and how it works - this will include place value (multiply/ divide by 10,100,1000) , negative numbers and word problems associated with these topics. This will be followed by learning the standard written method for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The calculations will include decimals and negative numbers. After this we will lok at fractions, including: what is a fraction, equivalent fractions, simplifying fractions and ordering fractions.
We will then move onto applying our knowledge of shape to practical problems. We will also be carrying out maths investigations to learn how to prove a theory.
Our English is linked to our topic work this half term. We will be studying a novel set in World War 2 - Put out the LIght by Terry Deary. We will be studying how authors create interesting narratives and how we can use some of their techniques to improve our own writing. We will then be learning how to write up a science experiment.
We have now moved onto spooky stories. We will learn how to write a narrative with a consisitent atmosphere and how to use 'show not tell' to develop suspense.
Details about Y6 Trip (Snowdome) and production will be available soon (honestly - the music has now arrived)
