Yr 6 – Mrs Palmer – Riber

Yr 6 Jan 2018 Term 3 Mission to Mars – The Solar System

We would like to Welcome Mr Stanton our Troops to Teachers Student in Y6 this term.

Homework This has had a hugely positive impact upon progress for Y6 children.  As we approach SATs in May our homework will differ slightly – each week your child will bring home either a Maths, Reading or EGAPS (grammar) focus homework.  This will still be on Monday will hand in the following Monday or before if completed. We will also repeat some of the Maths Skills checks with a focus upon accuracy and speed – in preparation for timed tests in SATs week.  Please encourage your child to investigate our scientific topic.

Topic Homework for this term will be to bring in pictures & captions with information that the children have found out, this can be inserted into homework logs.  Outstanding work will be photocopied and displayed in class.  Each week we will have a small prize for homework of the week.  Homework sharing will be on Thursday afternoons in class.  Please investigate and insert work of your own choice in your homework books.

Spellings Please continue to make progress to read and spell words from the Year 5 and 6 words. Please see attached words.

Times tables – quick recall of times tables facts are an essential skill to support understanding in Mathematics. Tables will be tested on Fridays and the children will have differentiated levels of testing. Please note times tables will include learning related division facts.

In Numeracy this term we will be looking at number and the number system to 6 digit numbers, division using four digit numbers dived by 1 and 2 digit number, dividing decimal numbers by 10. 100 and 1000, fractions of amounts. Conversion between fractions, decimals and percentages and finding percentages of amounts.

In Literacy this term we will be looking at the layout and style of information texts and stories with fantasy settings, beginning with Starseeker by Phil Porter.  Please encourage your child to extend their knowledge by reading regularly and discussing the text to promote understanding.  We are again working hard to promote reading at home and encourage children to read at least three or four times per week – a text of your child’s choice which could include any reading material.  Your child will be heard read regularly in school in structured guided reading sessions.

Maths club begins again on Tuesdays from Tuesday 9th January 3.15-4.15 – every Tuesday this term.
