Class 21 Year 6 2017 - 2018

Miss Hough

Welcome to Class 21's page! smiley

Welcome back to school! We hope that you have had a relaxed half term and are ready for the busy coming weeks! 

This term in our History and Geography topic work we will be continuing to study Ancient Egypt. We will also begin our next Science topic 'Light'.

Our English work will still be mainly grammar based in preparations for the SATs. We will also write an explanation as well as a story beginning and ending using the skills we have been working on in class.

In Maths we will continue our work within the four operations and will be especially focussing on honing our arithmetic skills ready for the up-coming SATs tests. We will be developing our problem solving and reasoning skills further using our knowledge of number and we will also be studying some geometry and interpreting data in the form of graphs and diagrams. 

As always there will be a focus on recall of multiplication and division facts to 12x12. We will have a test each Friday, this will give you an opportunity to achieve your Bronze, Silver and Gold awards!

Remember to practise your times tables regularly at home, as this will support you in all areas of your Maths work!  

Our R.E topic this half term is 'Jesus the Messiah' which gives the children a deepening understanding of Jesus and allows them to reflect on what they believe about their faith. They will understand that Jesus is the Messiah and will learn about the final journey that Jesus made to Jerusalem. In addition to this, they will know about and reflect upon the events of Holy Week and will deepen their understanding of the Resurrection. 

As always, the children will be bringing homework home each week  and the amount of this may increase as we get closer to May. Of course,  this is all important preparation for them and will help them to tackle to tests with confidence.

So, as you can see, we are all set for a busy half term indeed.

If you would like to find out more about what we will be learning this half term then please refer to the 'Files to Download' link below, where you will be able to find our curriculum map for the second half of the Spring term.

I look forward to yet another exciting and busy half term with Class 21!

Miss Hough.
