Our context for learning this Autumn term is WW2.
Please keep checking back to see all of the exciting work we have been doing. So far we have written non chronological reports about life in WW2, written story endings for Rose Blanche and discussed moral decisions linked to the topic.
In Literacy we will be continuing to develop our comprehension and response to reading skills. It is really important that everyone reads every day to make sure we are ready for high school. We will have reading tests to monitor the children's progress. We will also be learning about biographies, story writing and non chronological reports linked with our context. We will have weekly spelling tests on a Friday to enhance our skills.
This term we are focusing on developing our reasoning skills and applying them to a range of problems. We will be focusing on our number skills and will continue to have our CLIC and Big Maths tests on a Friday.
During the last few weeks of term we will be holding our own Trelai General Election. Year 6 will be creating their own parties and electing a leader. They will canvas to KS2 and try to get their Head Student candidate elected.
Homework will be given out on a Friday to be completed over the weekend. Homework will usually be a literacy and numeracy task and at the start of each half term, all children will be given a larger project consisting of different activities linked to our topic. Weekly spellings will also be given out and we will test the children the following week.
Children have access to:

Kits must be worn to school on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child is not wearing jewellery and is wearing appropriate footwear.
Our attendance has been improving but we have only been 'green' once since September. Our target is to be above 95%, please make sure your child is on time, everydayto give them the best chance of success in Y6.
Year 6 are going to be continue taking part in the accelerated reading scheme, they will be giving 20 minute independent reading time every day. AR is a computer program that helps to manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his/her own level and reads it at his/her own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer - passing the quiz is an indication that your child has understood what has been read. AR gives both children and teachers feedback based on the quiz results which the teacher then uses to help the child set targets and ongoing reading practice.
