Year 6 Curriculum Newsletter Summer 2 - 2017
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back for the final half term in Year 6 and at Brookhouse Primary School. Thank you as always, for your on-going support.
SATs took place in the week beginning 14th May. The children were well prepared, and I am sure this will be reflected in their results.
In English we will continue to develop our writing skills and will do this through the new class novel ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar.
In Maths we will continue to develop our problem-solving skills and I will try to incorporate lots of fun, hands-on, real life experiences for the children.
Electricity is the Science topic this half term. We are going to combine this with History and D.T., the children will incorporate their learning of electricity into their final D.T. project.
In P.E. we will be concentrating on orienteering, we will also focus on athletics in the run up to the School Sports Day.
We will also begin to prepare for the transition to High School and will help all the children to get ready for their new school, transition days for high schools will begin at the end of June. You will receive letters from your chosen high school containing all the information you need.
As it is the children’s final term at Brookhouse Primary School we have many leavers’ activities planned, including the Year 6 production, a trip to the Lancashire Science Festival and a trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
Homework will continue to be set through the use of Reading Eggs. There are additional activities to develop Maths and English skills available at: http://resources.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/
We value your support and are happy to discuss any issues you may have.
