Year 6

Week Beginning: 16th September

 

 

Our Learning this Week:

 

Maths: This week in Maths we will be moving onto looking at multiples and factors of different numbers.

 

English: We will be using 'The Escape'  to plan our own version before moving on to writing the opening two paragraphs, using the suspense techniques we learnt last week.

 

Reading: We will continue reading our book for this half term 'Stormbreaker' which is all about Alex Ryder the teenage spy. Our focus this week will be on exploring the meaning of different words in context.

 

PBL: Our topic this half term is 'Tomorrow's World'  where we will be focusing on the world of spies and futuristic technology. This week we will be attempting to create our very own coded messages (using some ancient techniques) before moving onto designing our own spy assault course.

 

Important Messages:

- For those children attending the Year 6 residential at Grosvenor Hall, the next installment of £45 is due by Monday 30th September

- PE days for Year 6 are Thursday and Friday. They will also need a pair of outdoor shoes for Woodlands on a Tuesday. Please note that if they don't have their shoes/kit, they won't be able to participate in the lessons.

- As per school policy, Year 6 will be receiving homework this year and we would be grateful for your support with this. We will look to begin this in the next couple of weeks and we will explain to the children our expectations for the work each week.

Congratulations to our reflective learners of the week!
