Welcome to Shakespeare Class – Year 6
Class Teachers: Mrs Richards and Mrs Smith
TA: Mrs Kevlin
This term our topic is People and Places. We will be continuing to explore the world we live in – looking at different biomes, the people who live there, and what life is like for them. In science we will be finding out about evolution and inheritance.
P.E will be on Tuesdays (cricket), and Fridays (Gymnastics). Please make sure your child has their P.E kit in school on these days.
In Maths, students will be consolidating their understanding of place value, and written methods. In addition to this, they will be learning more about angles, algebra and probability. Please come and talk to either of us if you would like to understand a bit more about how we teach these core skills in class.
Times tables work will be ongoing.
English’s main focus is on story telling, which will be linked to our topic, and persuasive writing. We will also continue to work on word and sentence level work.
We will be reading ‘From Hereabout Hill’ by Michael Morpurgo as our class novel. Your child has their own copy of this book and we are encouraging them to read this at home as well as at school. You can also download this book on ibooks and kindle as both a text an an audio-book.
As SATS approaches, we will be setting individualised homework weekly. This will be sent home on Wednesdays/Thursdays and needs to be returned by the following Tuesday. As we will be taking time to personalise this to ensure your child’s needs are best met, we ask for your support in ensuring this is returned. We can arrange extra support for homework during the lunchtimes where necessary.
