Year Six

 

 

Summer Term 2019

A big welcome back to Year 6 as we start the final phase of their Woodlands’ journey. It has been lovely to hear about the children’s break and to see them back so focused. We’ve got a busy term ahead with lots to look forward to.

In the first few weeks of term, we will be fine-tuning all of the learning the children have completed over this year in maths, reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar as we approach SATs week (13th May). To get the most out of the next few weeks, children should remember to continue doing short bursts of revision at home; there are plenty of resources on the class page below.

In English this half term, we will be writing our own adventure stories with plenty of twists and turns to keep the suspense high and the reader hooked. In Science we will be making rockets and looking at how to modify our designs to make them travel further. Further to this, our Empiribox unit is called The Particle Theory which is a fun ‘hands on’ approach to science. As it is their last term at Woodlands, the children will be reflecting on their time in Primary School and creating self-portraits in art.

In addition to all this wonderful learning, we have lots of enrichment activities planned including:

  • KNEX challenge
  • ·End of Year Production
  • Year 5/6 residential
  • Leavers disco

Please do not hesitate to make contact should you have any questions about the upcoming term.

 We are all looking forward to a great final term in Year 6.

Homework 

The children have been working extremely hard this year both inside and outside of school. There are, however, a few things I would like them to do for homework over the weekend. I would like them to think carefully about how they use their time before Monday. Below is a list of suggested activities for the children to complete in preparation for next week:

  • Run until your legs hurt
  • Eat Haribo
  • Have a Nerf war
  • Read a book you’ve always wanted to read
  • Watch a film that you haven’t had time to watch
  • Eat some ice cream
  • Laugh
  • Meet up with friends
  • Play a game
  • Blow bubbles in a milkshake

If they must, then they could do some revision, but it should be no more than 1 hour.

One last serious point, which I have stressed to all the children, is to ensure they get an early night on Sunday.

Thank you for all your support.

Year 6 Teaching Team

 

All homework is now online and can be accessed via the links below. If for any reason you are having problems accessing the links or the homework, please let on of the Year 6 team know.

Spelling - Monday

All spellings are currently being taught in school. We are following the No Nonsense spelling programme and are currently working on homophones (aloud-allowed, seen-scene, steal-steel)

 Literacy - Adventure Stories

For homework this weekend (27th-28th April), children have been asked to design a character or a couple of characters for their adventure stories they are working on in class. They should think about the kind of person they are, how they would react in their problem situation they will encounter and anything else they feel would be beneficial to their story. They do not need to worry too much about describing their physical appearance, only their characteristics. This is due in on Tuesday 30th April.

There is no additional homework this week, but please use the revision links below to support you in the run up to SATs.
