Year 6 half-termly newsletter


Our new subject this half term is The Human Body. We will be looking at how our bodies work. Areas we will cover are: the skeletal system, the muscular system, the circulatory system plus how we look after our bodies and stay healthy.


Our writing this half term is going to focus on writing an argument and also constructing a poem. We are continuing to learn and revise grammatical features in preperation for our SATs.


We will continue to look at calculations to support us with our arithmetic skills. However, we are also going to be focussing more on how we can use our skills to solve problems.


Homework at this time of year is very important. The homework that the chidlren receive relates to the work that we have covered in class during the week. Homework is handed out on Friday and expected in the following Thursday. Please try to support your children in any way you can.


Although I welcome as much research as your child is willing to complete, I do however expect at least 1 page of good quality work each week. To assist the children in their research they are allowed to borrow a non –fiction book from class.


Encouraging your child to read independently or sitting with them and hearing them read is very important at this time of year. When reading with your child it is helpful to look at words they find tricky and explain the meaing of these words. It is also a good skill to encourage your child to skim through passages to find key information.


Year 6 PE has changed to a Thursday morning. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit on Thursday.
