Year 6

Week Beginning 25th September 

 

Our learning this week:

 

English: We will be watching the Space Chimp video and the children will be using this to produce a piece of writing which creates atmosphere. We will look at using hyphens and noun phrases within our writing. 

 

Maths: This week's focus is on multiplication. In Year 6 children need to be confident with using the formal written method of column multiplication to multiply a 4-digit number by a 2-digit number.

 

Reading: We will continue to read and answer questions about our class book - 'Stormbreaker'. We will also be working on some example SATs style reading questions. 

 

Project: As part of our Tomorrow's World topic the children will be learning about creating circuits and will be encouraged to explore ways of making different circuits. The children will try their hand at creating their own spy-themed computer game and will be required to programme this using their own algorithms.

Book Fair

‘Travelling Books’ are returning to the Infant School on Wednesday 4th October. The Book Fair was a huge success last year and we raised over £500 worth of book vouchers for the school. The book fair will be coming to the Juniors in March next year. 

 

There will be a large selection of books suitable for children aged 4-11 years old, at great prices, so please come and have a look in the bottom hall everyday October 4th - 9th before and after school.

 

If you will not be able to make the book fair, you can still support us by buying a book online. Just go to the online shop at: https://shop.scholastic.co.uk/free-booksl and start shopping!

 

If you enter our school postcode RH1 6DZ, you can have the books delivered to school. This is also a great option if you would like to pay by card, as we can only take cash payments at school.

 

We hope to see you at the book fair next week!
