Class 6 - Mrs Proudman
The children have settled well back into our new term and are enjoying our new topic on 'Medicine through time'. They are trying to find out 'How have the medical breakthroughs of the last 250 years affected the lives of people in Britain?'
Be warned though - we might travel through some gruesome times along the way!!!!!
The children will be enjoying Tag Rugby on Monday afternoons and a range of team building activities on Thursday afternoons. We will also be working really hard towards our SATs in May
We are looking forward to our residential at Caythorpe in March. We also have visits to Warning Zone and Bikeability next term.
Welcome back. The children have already settled in well and are working hard.
This term our topic is 'What is our most precious treasure?'. Through our studies in history and geography we will be finding out what is our most precious treasure and how we can look after it. We have already planned a trip to Rutland water.
Homework will be set on Fridays and we would like it back by the following Wednesday to enable us to mark it. The children's spelling tests will be on Fridays.
PE days will be Mondays and Thursdays so please ensure your child's PE kit is in school.

As the children now sit a Grammar, spelling and punctuation test, Grammar is taught each week. They will also practise using the new grammar in class and then follow this up with homework. Here are some links to help you at home:
Maths is taught every day. The children revisit or learn new concepts and then they ensure they have mastered the concepts through tackling reasoning and problem solving tasks through the week.
Links to help you with Maths:
30/9/19 and 7/10/19
Here is a powerpoint for the long division method. It shows you how to do it with a single digit. Please use bus stop method for single digits!! You would only use long division for harder 2 digit, e.g. 3472 divided by 32.
Multiples and factors
Angles in a triangle
If you fancy practising your tables here is the link for the worksheet generator
Here is an arithmetic test generator
Reading fluently and having experience of a wide range of texts is very important in year 6 and beyond. We therefore have guided reading where the teacher sets a range of text types through the year. The children also practise showing they have understood what they have read and prepare for SATs tests in May through comprehension exercises.
The children have a literacy lesson every day. They learn about different types of writing and how to adapt their style appropriately. With the new curriculum there is a much greater emphasis on accuracy. The children learn how to use more complex punctuation correctly and spelling is much more important.
