Inspire, believe, achieve!

Year 6 Mrs Nolan

I hope everyone had a great Easter feasting on some sweet treats and now, as always, are ready to work hard this term and continue to use a ‘can do’ attitude to reach our potential!

 

With the SAT's tests beginning on Monday 13th May, work in Maths and English will be geared towards pushing the children's ability to the next level and giving them a chance to show how creative they can be! To make this possible it is essential that pupils maintain excellent attendance throughout this term. Once the SATs exams are complete, we can turn our attentions to the end of year production, specifically working on our singing, dancing and acting skills in recreating a Broadway-standard play for parents and carers!

 

This term will be particularly important for pupils to begin the transition into high school. With this in mind, visits will be arranged with high schools, and work will be completed in order to ease any worries that pupils may have prior to starting in September. I will attach our newsletter which will contain full details of this term’s objectives, but our highlights include:

 

-English-

  • Read a range of Mayan God myths before creating their own.
  • Write own extended mystery stories and share them with others.
  • Create a set of clear and cohesive instructions.

 

-Maths-

  • Use simple formulae.
  • Generate and describe linear number sequences.
  • Solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in all types of graph.

 

-Topic-

  • Drawing their own Mayan God creation using a range of media to apply colour to it.
  • Identify the position and significance of latitude, longitude, Equator, Northern and Southern hemisphere and the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn.
  • To understand the differences between political and physical maps and the information they can provide.

 

 It is particularly important that the children continue reading regularly at home to help their understanding of writing and comprehension whilst trying their best with homework in order to consolidate their grammar and maths learning from the week.

 

If you need to speak to me regarding any issues, do not hesitate to contact me and make sure you follow @firsprimarysale and search #Year6JN to keep track of all our messages, fun activities and work we produce each week!

 

Thanks for your continued support.
