LESSON 1  - PLACE VALUE

LESSON 2 - DECIMALS

LESSON 3 - PERCENTAGES

LESSON 4 - AREA PERIMETER AND VOLUME

LESSON 5 - ALGEBRA

As we have not yet covered algebra in Year 6, today's lesson will take place in two parts... the introduction, on the video below,  and I will be explaining the three sheets in your red Maths pack that don't have the answers online. Below is a sheet you can try if you are confident at algebra (have done so before). You can do it before or after the video - the answers to the sheet are on the video. Good luck!

I have tried (twice) to create a video to talk through the other sheets but this has failed so below are the notes - and answers - I made for the video. Have a lovely weekend everyone!

LESSON 6 - POSITION AND DIRECTION

Hi everyone - I hope you had a lovely weekend :) Below is today's Maths video. Keep smiling!

LESSON 7 - FRACTIONS

The recording for today is below - please excuse my new look with headphones!!

This is a new video talking through the other sheets on fractions in your Year 6 pack. Be sure to stop the video when needs be to check your answers and understand the explanations! Click on this link here:

Information texts about World War II bomb shelters

Having carried out some independent research, children compiled an information leaflet of their own design, using their imaginations to enhance the factual detail.

Blitz Drawings

Children in Year 6 learnt how to use a vanishing point to create a sense of perspective in their drawings of London after the Blitz. Charcoal enhanced the shading and created further interest.

Propaganda Posters

As part of our World War Two topic, the children in year 6 designed propaganda posters. They practised skills of one-point perspective writing and printing using a stamp they had designed and made. Some are still a work in progress to be finished next week!

Japan Day

First day back after half-term and it’s Japan day. This includes tasting traditional food, dressing up in Kimonos (see pictures), writing in Japanese and watching Anime. 

Brenscombe

What a week!  See pictures of the residential below, more to be added soon.

 

Spring 2020

 

Maths

This term we are learning all about the following: measures, percentages, ratio, area, perimeter & volume and geometry. As previously, testing your child's times table knowledge will also be very beneficial - they should know them all up to 12 x 12 including the inverse. Don't forget to remind your child to log-on to their Mathletics account regularly as we will be setting activities and assessment tasks related to our learning in class. They may even receive a Mathletics wrist band during Celebration Worship and their class might gain the weekly trophy!

 

English

We are using our class book, 'Pennies for Hitler' this term to inspire our writing. We will be writing a variety of texts including narrative, recounts, information sheets and diaries. Following that, we will gain inspiration from a number of film clips on the theme of conflict, including a first-hand account of a real-life incident from The Battle of the Bulge.

Reading

We are encouraging the children to read as much as possible at home.  This week, each child should have brought home a blue reading diary.  If they can read on at least five out of seven days of each week, they will receive a merit.  Reading is the cornerstone for so much of a child's learning and it is vitally important that your child reads as much as possible. Their weekly visit to our beautiful library will give them the opportunity to choose new books regularly.

Our first class reader will be 'Pennies for Hitler' by Jackie French, a tale of a boy called Georg caught up in the Second World War. Next, we will study 'The Machine Gunners' by Robert Westall.

If you haven't discovered Bug Club yet, then make sure you have a look.  All the children have their login details and it is a great, fun way of moving on in their reading ability. Please encourage your child to log onto their 'Read Theory' account regularly too as this will give them excellent opportunities to develop their comprehension skills.

 

Spellings

These are the National Curriculum spellings for year 5 and 6 - we will be working on these throughout the year alongside other spelling patterns.
