Welcome to Y6 Magnolia
Teacher: Mr Tumilty (Mr Pasdari - Thursdays)
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Gilbert & Miss Burrows
I hope everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable and safe Christmas and, as always, are ready to work hard this term and continue to grow our brains in order to reach our potential!
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. This term's topic will focus on our city of Manchester! We will look at how Manchester has developed through the centuries, how important this is and what exactly makes our city great and unique. I will attach our newsletter/bookshelf poster which will contain full details of this term’s objectives.
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 (handed out every Friday) in order to consolidate their spellings, 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 our school X account, @firsprimarysale and search #Y6Magnolia to keep track of all our messages, fun activities and work we produce each week!
Thanks for your continued support.
Mr Tumilty, Mr Pasdari, Mrs Gilbert and Miss Burrows.

Our Reading Area
As a school, we have a huge focus on reading for pleasure. It is crucial that children in year 6 read regularly, and that the texts they are choosing are appropriate and challenging for their own level. Please see below a suggested reading list for year 6 - full of fantastic books which should challenge and excite them! Happy reading!
Street child - The Shilling pie.mp3
Street Child is one of my favourite books to read in Year6 and it links perfectly with our class topic of The Victorians. Chapter one, The Shilling Pie, read by Mrs Gilbert, will introduce you to the main character Jim Jarvis.
Our Art Gallery
Art is a lesson that we love to express our creativity. Sometime our art is linked to a topic or book and sometimes art is linked to festivals and celebrations in the calendar. Our units this year will be closely linked to drawing, printing and sculpting. We focus on the process rather than the outcome; that way all of our work is unique, just like us! We hope you enjoy the images of our work that will be shared on here and our twitter page througout the year.
Methods In Maths
We understand that the mathematical methods taught in school may be different from what adults at home know and use. Use this link to find videos that explain the methods taught in school for each operation.
Go-To Art Activities
Here are a range of fun Art activities that you can try out at home!
