Autumn Term 2019
We have an exciting, yet busy, year ahead of us and look forward to out Rainforest topic in the Autumn term.
During our reciprocal reading sessions, we encourage children to predict, clarify, question and summarise as they explore a range of text types. These texts follow our theme and focus on different elements of the rainforest. We encourage every child to read at home at least 4 times a week and preferably out loud to an adult at least once a week to assist with building vocabulary and confidence. As a school, we will continue to use the system for encouraging children to choose the right level of book for their reading needs. Across Year 6, we have a wide selection of books for each level, so children are free to choose books that interest them. However, if there is a book that they particularly want to read, please encourage them to ask their teacher. On completion of the books, they will then answer a short multiple choice quiz about the book. Alongside our reading, we will be using our English Talk 4 Writing (T4W) to further build the pupils range of writing skills. Over the term, we will focus on NCR, a narrative journey story and a defeating the monster text. We are confident that the pupils love of reading and excellent figurative language will filter into their writing.
Within our other core subject, we will be focusing on developing further their already great maths knowledge. To support this, it is crucial that all children know their times tables well and can recall and apply them at speed. This really helps to boost confidence in all areas of maths. Throughout the year, we will be focusing on rapid recall of times table facts, including the inverse and how multiples of 10/100/1000 can affect the answer. Continued support at home in this area by encouraging children to play TTrockstars, alongside key areas such as time, money and measure would be greatly appreciated.
To support our rainforest theme, we will be visited by Jonathon's Jungle. He will give the children an opportunity to hold and observe a range of rainforest creatures. Our science will build on our theme and the focuses for the term will be Evolution, Adaptation and Living Things and their Habitats. Using this knowledge and out ICT skills, the pupils will create a stop gap animation about the rainforest. On top of these, we also have some other visitors including the police to talk about internet safety as well as an exciting science visit from BAE systems, the RAF and the Royal Navy education programme roadshow 2019.
On top of this, each week the children will spend time continuing to develop their UNITED skills through activities such as Lego or team board games. They will also continue to engage with 'philosophy for children' where they will learn to formulate their own questions based on popular story books and current topics - the use of medicines gained from the rainforest. PSHE sessions will continue to promote anti-bullying, friendship and management of emotions.
We are fortunate in Year 6 that we complete a range of different sports. Through class teaching and extra curricular activities the pupils have an opportunity to participate in an exciting array of sports: frisbee, gymnastics, netball, real PE and many more.
Year 6 is an important year as we are ensuring that the pupils are ready for secondary school. This includes completing the SATs tests. To help the children through this we complete a range of mock tests. These will take place during the weeks commencing 14th October 2019, 20th January 2020, 9th March 2020 & 27th April 2020. SATs week is the week commencing 11th May 2020.
