Year 6 2018 - 2019
Welcome to 6B!
For this term our topic will have a focus on Ancient Egypt: 'Can you walk like an Egyptian?' We will be working on locating Egypt on a map, identifying facts about the environment of the country, including the physical and human geography of the land. Looking at the importance of the River Nile specifically on life in Egypt. As part of our work on understanding the hisotry of the Ancient Egyptians, we will be learning about who the Pharaohs were and finding out about burial and mummification. This is something we will get to investigate more on our trip to the museum in Liverpool. Egyptian Gods will also have a focus in our learning and how the Egyptians worshipped them.
Our class text for this term is 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll, which we will using as a focus for some of our writing and comprehension work.
This term we will spend a lot of time preparing for our SATs and will have a specific focus on SAT style questions. This includes a range of booster groups running alongside all of the work going on in the classroom.
I hope you are ready for a busy term!
The children will receive a homework grid which will focus on the topic for this term. As the children will also be having weekly homework, we ask them to complete 6 points of the grid.
The children will also be receiving weekly Maths and English homework with a focus on what we are working on in class. On a Monday maths will be sent home and is to be handed in on the following Thursday. Then English will come home Thursday and is to be handed in the following Monday. The children will have English and Maths homework books where they will record the task. The tasks will range from online games or challenges to written tasks.
The children will be given weekly spellings with a focus of a rule or spelling pattern. These will be stuck into their home-school diary. A copy of each week's spellings will be uploaded to the 'spelling' tab at the top of this page.
The children are encouraged to read as much as possible at home and to keep a record of this in their diaries. we have a class library that the children can choose from or it can be a book they have from home. The diaries are signed weekly and I will be looking for a record of reading. There is also a section for parents to sign each week.
There are also some suggested reading books for Year 6 children which can be found under the 'reading' tab at the top of this page.
Please remember to take your diaries home and bring them back to school every day.
All children have been provided with a school water bottle where a donation of £1 will be put towards the running of the water filter machines. Water bottles should go home on a Friday for a wash and be returned back to school on a Monday. The water bottles will have fresh water every day.
Our PE sessions are on a Monday and Thursday. As the children will be using the field as much as possible, we have suggested that the children have a pair of tracksuit bottoms or leggings, to wear under their shorts, and a hoodie to keep them warm.
Outdoor shoes and coats
All children should have a pair of outdoor shoes and a coat in school for play times and lunch times.
