Y6 Magnolia

Welcome to Y6 Magnolia

#Y6Magnolia

 

Teacher: Mr Tumilty (Mr Pasdari - Thursdays)

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Gilbert & Miss Burrows

 

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 and enjoy our learning!

 

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 wobbles that pupils may have prior to starting in September. I will attach our bookshelf poster which will contain full details of this term’s objectives.

 

Our SATS tests will also be held during the Summer term, starting on Monday 13th May until Thursday 16th May. Though the test results will only reflect a small part of what makes our pupils the amazing individuals they are, we will endeavour to prepare and work hard for all pupils to achieve their full potential and to be proud of personal achievements they make.

 

If you need to speak to me regarding any issues, do not hesitate to contact me and make sure you follow us on X @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 Y6 Magnolia Classroom

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

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.

Here is a copy of the new Numeracy Framework for Y6 to help you understand what your child will be learning and when.

Here is a copy of the Year 6 expectations - this covers what children will be learning throughout the year in Reading, Writing and Maths.

Go-To Art Activities

Here are a range of fun Art activities that you can try out at home!
