Welcome to Shakespeare Class – Year 6
Class Teachers: Mrs Richards and Mrs Smith
TA: Mrs Kevlin
This term (Summer Term) we have a whole school topic around the continents, and we are studying Asia. We will be exploring the differences in cultures across this vast continent and comparing them with our own. In science we will be focusing on ‘The Human body’. We will look at the different systems which make up our amazing body as well as the functions of different organs. This will feed into our work on Sex Education in Term 6, as well as our work on Health and Fitness through PSHE.
P.E will be on Tuesdays (cricket), and Fridays (Dance). Please make sure your child has their P.E kit in school on these days.
In Maths, students will be preparing for SATS week (W/C 8th May 2017). We will be developing test technique as well as revising the key areas of mathematics. Don’t forget – we will be running SATS club for maths every Thursday after school until 5th May. After SATS, we will be working with local businesses and individuals to find out why maths is so important in life. We will be running a small scale business of our own, and will be learning from a range of professions how thy use maths as part of their work.
Times tables work will be ongoing.
English lessons will also focus on perfecting our test taking skills in reading comprehension and in Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation. Weekly homework will come from SATS Club (Tuesdays of Reading, Wednesdays for SPaG), and aims to support children in preparing for the tests. After SATS, we will be looking at stories from Asia, writing in role and also working on a long term project on an aspect of Asia.
We are currently awaiting suggestions from children for our next class novel. Watch this space!
