Year 6

Welcome to Year 6:
Kestrel and Falcon Class


Ms Roberts is teaching Kestrel Class this year and Mrs Dale is the class teacher in Falcon Class.

Welcome

Welcome to year 6! We hope you find the information below useful as your child starts the year with us. This information will help you support your child at home with the organization of their week and their learning at home.

Key Times

Homework

Homework will be set every half term. Your child will be asked to work on a number of projects, designed to enrich the learning taking place in school. This approach to homework has been designed to enable you and your child to work together in a creative way and to develop a love of learning. Please see the homework document for Autumn.

PE

In year 6, the PE days are Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit on these days.

Stay and Read

The year 6 guided reading open morning will be taking place on 3.4.19

Themed Weeks

This term we will be involved in two enrichment weeks within school.

Week 2- Book Week

Week 5- Art Week

We look forward to sharing our learning from these weeks with you

Key Times

The school gates open at 8:30 in the morning and by 8:50 children should be on the playground ready for the bell at 8:55. In KS2, children will be dismissed at the end of the day at 3:25.

 

Homework

Read it

Research it

Make it

Read and discover more about your favourite London attraction e.g. The London Eye, London Dungeon, and Tower of London. Explain why it is your favourite attraction and why is it a popular attraction for tourists visiting London.

You could read leaflets, internet reviews, newspaper articles, etc.

Research advertisements of current London attractions. Compare and contrast different leaflets. What makes one better than the other? Is it structure, layout, colour, use of different texts or fonts?

Find a range of examples to present to the class to support your point of view. 

Transform your London attraction design into a prototype model. Think carefully about the materials you are going to use and consider how your attraction would form a part of the London skyline. 

Practise it

Write it

Design it

Continue to practise your weekly spellings and joined-up handwriting.

Practise your mental methods for the four operations (partitioning, rounding, near doubles and related number facts) in everyday actions, e.g. while at the shops, timing events, timetables, adding numbers (bus numbers, playing cards).

Write an advert which will encourage people to visit your new London attraction. You need to think about your audience- what information will they want to know? e.g. price, location, facilities, main attractions etc.

You should create a suitable structure for your persuasive writing which includes pictures and captions and the persuasive features and techniques that we have looked at in class. 

There is a plot of land that has become available in Central London. Use your imagination to design a new futuristic modern attraction. You need to consider how you are going to make it attractive to many different types of people.

Decide upon the shape, size and facilities that would make your attraction the most sought after place to go in London!

A note to parents, over the course of this half term please work with your child to complete the above. Each of the activities has been designed to support, enhance and enrich an aspect of the curriculum. We are looking forward to seeing the results of your work together.

The homework will be due in on the second-to-last week of half term.


What are we learning?

In Literacy we be reading ‘The London Eye Mystery’ by Siobhan Dowd. It is an action-packed, gripping novel that tells the story of how a young boy, Ted and his sister solve the mystery of how their cousin seemingly vanishes from inside a sealed capsule on the London Eye.

In Maths, we will begin by revising number, place value and basic operations. Later on in the half-term, we will move onto ratio, proportion, fractions and algebra.

Our Topic learning will be ‘Fairgrounds’ this half-term. We will be focusing specifically on forces and electricty.

How can I help at home?

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that their child is at school every day and on time. You can also help us by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 25 minutes – this can be with you, or on their own. It is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school. We also ask that you talk to your child about what they are reading, encouraging them to find facts in the text or make inferences about characters.

Children also have a ‘Mathletics’ login – please encourage them to use this frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts. They are also given a login to ‘Word mania’ which can be used regularly to help develop spelling and fluency.

If you have any questions, please talk to Mrs Dale or Ms Roberts, or you can arrange a meeting at the office.

Thanks,

Mrs Dale and Ms Roberts
