Welcome to Year 6!
Mrs Durkin, Miss Byrne and Mrs Vyas are the class teachers in 6A. Mr Gagen is the class teacher in 6J.
Mr Tomassini is the Teaching Assistant who will be working within the year group.
In Maths, this term we will be looking at ratio, algebra, decimals, area and perimeter and statistics. We will continue with the Singapore Maths Method, using a Concrete-Pictorial- Abstract approach. The use of word problems will encourage your children to use high-order thinking techniques and applied skills in their work.
In English, we will be reading a range of high quality texts as a stimulus for writing. Children will learn about sentence structure and word choice through the books we read. We will also continue to develop our vocabulary and grammar skills through our reading sessions. The children will develop their stamina in reading and answering questions from a text as well as use their retrieval, inference and prediction skills. Our class novel this half term is Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carrol.
In RE, we will be covering a different topic each half term. This term we will be covering , ‘People of Prayer’ and 'Lent to Easter’,
In History, this term, we will be studying WW2.
In Science, this term, we will be investigating Body Health and Electricity.
Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit in school and it is labelled. PE will be taught on Wednesdays and Fridays.
We encourage the children to read daily and take responsibility for commenting on what they have read in their reading records every night. Please listen to your child read as well as reading to your child. It is important to discuss the books they are reading by asking relevant questions. The children will be expected to bring in their reading records every day. Their class teacher will listen to them read weekly.
Each week, the children will receive maths and English homework. Occasionally, the homework may relate to 'Topic' or R.E. work we are covering. Alongside this, there will be weekly spellings and times tables to learn using 'Times Tables Rockstars' so that the children can consolidate their times tables. Your child has been given their login details. An assignment will be uploaded on SPAG.com weekly for the children to complete.
Homework will be handed out on Fridays. The homework is expected to be handed in the following Thursday by 8am.
We wish the children a successful final year in Sacred Heart. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the class teachers.
