Spring Term – Year 6

Welcome to the Spring Term in Year 6.

Following the Christmas break, we settled down straight away to our additional Maths and English booster sessions. We are working really hard to revise lots of key concepts ready for our SATs in May. We love our new homework books and we complete them every night.

 

MATHS

We have been learning about fractions, decimals and percentages and how to give our answers in the simplest form. We have also generated and described linear number sequences as well as expressing number problems algebraically.

 

English

Our Power of Reading book this term is The Song from Somewhere Else by A.F. Harold. We have loved using conscience alley to inspire our diaries and letters. Our class reader for this term is Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We can’t wait to discover how Kensuke’s and Michael’s relationship develops and whether Michael will ever be rescued from the island

 

Science

We have learned about how we see things and we can now label parts of the eye as well as describing what each part does. We enjoyed working in groups to investigate how we can use mirrors to change the direction of light. We also wrote our own poems or raps about the eyes.

This term, we are also studying Judaism and we are looking forward to our visit to a Synagogue. In DT, we have been evaluating, designing and making our own shelters. On 5/2/20, we held our Show and Tell session as well as discussing our own ideas about being brave. We designed our own costumes for how we see ourselves to make us confident and brave.
