Yr 6 – Mrs Palmer
Mrs Palmer & Mr Biggs
Our Topic this term will continue to have a Geography focus and is called ‘A Land Down Under.’ This will be based upon the geography and history of Australia; making links to the same period in British History. Please encourage your child to investigate this topic. Homework for this term will primarily focus upon SATs revision – children will have either a Maths, Reading or Grammar Past SATs Paper each week for the next seven weeks this term. However, children can also use research, writing, pictures & captions with information that the children have found out, this can be of their own choice and inserted into homework logs. Homework will be shared in class on Thursday afternoons. Reading continues to be a focus and is essential for the upcoming SATs. Reading regularly is vital in order to support both pace, fluency and understanding. Maths Club will continue every Tuesday 3.15 until 4.15.
Please continue to practise for very quick recall of times tables facts including division facts in preparation for the Mental Arithmetic SATs test in May. Year 6 SATs will begin on Monday 8th May until Thursday 11th May 2017. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/key-stage-2-assessments-2017-planner Children can access free past SATs paper online in order to practise and familiarise with the types of questions and expected standards at http://www.satstestsonline.co.uk/sto_past_paper
Y6 will continue to open every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 8.20. This will provide an opportunity for supported study, extra help or extra reading. Please encourage your child to use this to support their learning and progress and preparation for SATs in May 2017
HELP! – Can anyone spare 20 minutes in the afternoons? If you can spare the time and could come in any day please let us know a.s.a.p.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT Mrs S Palmer and Mr L Biggs
