Please make sure that you can your parents take a look at the information posted on this website regarding secondary schools as you will need to apply for them in October. CLICK HERE to go to our secondary transfer page. Here you will find details which we have been sent from local schools which you may wish to attend.
Your spellings from this week are as follows. Remember if you got less that 20 on the last tests you need to practice the words that you got wring as we will continue to test you on them until you can confidently do all the year 3-4 spellings.
In addition to your spellings, continue to carry on with your WW2 research. We have been looking into the Blitz this week. What additional facts can you find out to add to your information sheet. Following on from this we will be looking at the evacuation of children from major cities due to the Blitz.
This week we continue to practice the year 3-4 spellings. Remember to get someone to test you on your spellings as the more your practice the better you will get at them.
We are continuing to do our times tables tests. It is so important that you carry on practising them until you know them all off by heart and so that you can recall all of them accurately and quickly. This is a skill that will help greatly in your maths.
This week we would like you to learn the first 25 words from the year 3-4 spellings. You will need to make sure you know all of these as well as the year.
We will also be starting our new topic WWII this term so we would like you to do some research. We suggest that you use this website to help you with your research.
To start this year we thought we would have a go at creating our portraits using line drawings and collage. We think they cane out rather well don't you?
Over the last few days, the year 6 team have been busy getting things ready at school and we are all eagerly awaiting your return. This year as you already know there is Mrs Thompson in 6T working with Angela, Miss Haynes in 6H working with Gina, and Clare will be working across the two classes. When you arrive on Monday morning we will all be awaiting your arrival in the playground and can't wait to see you. Remember all you need to bring is a water bottle with your name written clearly on it. Please do not bring in a school bag or anything else (unless you are bringing in your pack lunch). We hope you have a relaxing final week of the holiday.
Your very excited year 6 team!
Below are lots of documents, PowerPoints and tests that you can do in the run up to SATs.
Each one is linked to learning we have done in class and will help you to revise for you SATs.
There is a mix of Maths, Reading and SPaG which will look at revising key concepts and then testing you on them.
There are answers where these are needed but please do not look at these until you have completed the activity.
Enjoy Year 6
