Year 6 Curriculum Newsletter Autumn - 2018
Dear Parents and Carers,
We have had an amazing time at Robinwood, this year. Your children behaved impeccably, they are a credit to you.
In English we will be trying to teach the children how to infer and deduce from the text using our APE (Answer, Prove and Explain) strategies. We will do this through using a variety of texts and genres and we will be reading a variety genres, such as Poetry, Fiction etc. Please encourage your child to read every day at home, focusing on the vocabulary they don't understand. They will be provided with a weekly spelling list to learn, as well as a bank of Year 6 words which can be located in their homework books.
This term we will be focusing on arithmetic skills. It is essential your child knows their times tables up to 12x12. They can use online resources such as 'Times Table Rockstars' and 'Mathletics'. We will be organising intervention groups during the lunch hour and after school so if your child is chosen, it is vital they attend and complete their homework. This half terms focus will be Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.
Our topic is called 'Britten's Got Talent'. In Science we will be learning about Light, how light travels, how we see things and shadows. In art children will be practising their shading, drawing and painting skills, we will use the environment to inspire us.
Year 6 are very fortunate to have qualified coaches from Blackburn Rovers. For this term they will be improving their skills in Athletics. P.E will take place every week on Thursday so it is important that children have a full P.E kit in school - yellow Brookhouse PE t-shirt, black joggers/leggings or shorts and black pumps or trainers.
Year 6 are very fortunate to receive Samba Drumming lessons on a Friday by qualified Music teachers. They will be performing which we will inform you about, nearer to the time.
Aswell as the homework already mentioned above, I also post Reading Eggs, Spag homework, online. It is important that children try to complete all their online homework, on a weekly basis.
If you have any questions or wish to speak to us please don't hesitate to contact the school office to arrange a meeting.
Thank you for your continued support.
