Dear Parents,

 

I hope you have had a restful Easter break. Thank you again for all your patience and support during the period of school closures. Hopefully we will have a much more settled term!

 

Usually the final term of Year 6 is full of lots of exciting activities such as trips, productions and other events. Unfortunately we are still very limited on what we are allowed to do in school due to Covid regulations. We are hoping that later in the term the rules will be relaxed slightly so we can do more, but at present it is impossible to say for sure. We will keep you informed as and when things change.

 

This is our curriculum for the current half term:

 

Writing

 

Narrative – story writing based on nightmares and linked to the book ‘A Monster Calls’ 

 

Non-fiction – a recount based around the book ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’

 

Grammar/Punctuation

 

Revising word classes (nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs and prepositions)

 

Punctuation including colons, semi-colons and dashes

 

Reading

 

Developing a range of skills using Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian

 

Maths

 

Area, perimeter and volume

 

Statistics

 

Geometry and shape

 

RE

 

We will be learning about Jesus’ Ascension and the first Apostles

 

Science

Computing

 

We will be continuing with our programming work on Scratch. Pupils will be creating their own computer games.

 

PE

Art

Latin

 

A Sad Day! Latin verbs, nouns and adjectives.

 

 

As previously mentioned, all SATs tests and teacher assessments have been cancelled this year to due Covid. However we will be carrying out practice SATs tests at some stage this half term. The purpose of this will be to assess the children’s learning and to identify key areas we need to focus on before the children leave. There is no need for the children to do any extra work in preparation.

 

Home learning will resume shortly. This will consist of reading, spelling and maths.

 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.

 

Best wishes,

Miss Annely and Mr Kelly
