Spring 2 update on learning in Y6

Spring 2   Year 6   

 SATs boosters are resuming on week commencing 9.3.2020

Here are some of the topics that we will be covering in this half term.

We are continuing with our WW2 topic. We will be studying this topic in detail throughout the term, culminating in our visit to Stockport Air Raid Shelter. We have been studying Goodnight Mr Tom in English lessons and using this as a stimulus for lots of different writing opportunities. We have taken part in a variety of art projects also. Some of our artwork is displayed in school. The children will also be able to complete projects at home, as part of their weekly homework tasks.

English– This half term we will be studying the structure and content of adventure stories. We will be writing a diary and a short adventure story. We will read a variety of adventure stories and watch some film clips to help us with ideas.

 

In SPaG lessons we will be revising all areas of punctuation and continuing to work on all the aspects of grammar to make your written work better. Remember the children have weekly spellings to learn, using Spelling Shed. Also, this is a really useful website for helping children with previous spellings-

www.spellingframe.co.uk

 

MathsIn our maths lessons we will be covering the Year 6 objectives from the maths Curriculum. You will be continuing to work hard to achieve your targets in a variety of aspects of maths, trying to become more fluent and developing your reasoning and problem solving skills. We will be focussing on the using and applying aspect of maths through problem solving, reasoning, explaining and investigating.  You will also be continuing to learn all your times tables so that you know all the multiplication and division facts to 12 x 12 to become and taking part in the Battle of the Bands.

https://ttrockstars.com/

 

 

Science–In our Science lessons we will continue with our topic on Light and Sight.The children will learn about how light travels and that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes, or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes. They will learn that shiny or reflective surfaces alter the direction in which light travels. Children will have the opportunity to solve problems related to everyday life about how light travels and how we see. Children will also investigate and explain the shapes of shadows, and relate this to light travelling in straight lines.

Then we will start our new topic entitled: Classifying Living Things

In this unit children will learn how to classify living things using the major classification kingdoms. They will identify and describe the observable characteristics of a range of classification groups including micro-organisms, plants and animals. Children will make careful observations to identify the characteristics that help scientists classify all living things, such as whether a living thing has a backbone and how they reproduce. Children will also be able to use their observations to construct classification keys of increasing complexity. They will use evidence from their investigation to predict and investigate how to accelerate the rate of decay. We will complete this unit in the summer term.

 

Computing– We will continue our work on coding, using the Scratch 3 program. Computing will also be used in a cross-curricular manner too in a variety of other curriculum areas to enhance learning. We will be using  Book Creator, Powerpoint, imovie and Keynote to present our work in other subjects in different ways.

 

 

Remember to use your log in for Discovery Learning regularly to help you with any areas of year 6 work that you may need extra practise on. If you need a log in and password please see Mrs Lynch.

 

 

Homework-

The children will continue to get English and maths homework every week. We will always set the homework on a Friday and it must be brought back into school by the following Wednesday. The children will also be bringing home their reading books every day and it is vitally important that they read every day. We are really working on the children’s comprehension skills so it would be great if you could ask them questions about their books every time you read with them.

We keep track of the homework and reading on charts in the classroom that are linked to the assertive mentoring scheme that we use in school. In order to achieve a green mark their homework MUST be completed and handed in on WEDNESDAY.

 

We will be doing P.E. on Wednesday and Friday, so the children need their kits in school on these days. Just a reminder that school P.E. kit comprises of a white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps and if P.E. is taking place outside and the weather is cold, the children are allowed to wear dark jogging bottoms and trainers. All jewellery must be removed for P.E.

We are looking forward to sharing all these exciting learning opportunities with you.  Don’t forget to keep in contact using Blogs!

 

It is very important, in the run up to SATs, that all children are in every day and that they attend booster classes when required.

Lillian Gilbreth by Honey Van Assen

 

Lillian Gilbreth was born in 1878 into a big family of nine children.  She graduated from University of California, Berkeley, with master’s in literature. She met Frank Gilbreth in the middle of completing  her PhD at Brown University. She was intrigued by his obsession with workplace efficiency and switched from literature to psychology. Her dissertation, ‘ The Psychology of Management’, was the first study of how relationships affect us at work. Together, Lillian and Frank ran a consultancy. They would study a simple task, such as bricklaying or carrying tools, and break the motions down to the most essential steps to make the workers’ jobs quicker. They also wrote many books about motion and fatigue. Often, only Frank’s name would appear on their work because publishers thought a male author would appear more authorative – even though Lillian was the psychologist. When Frank died in 1924, Lillian took charge of the company. Many of her clients did not want a woman telling them how to run factories, so Lillian focused on homemakers instead. Back then, it was common for women to spend all day cooking and cleaning. Lillian applied ergonomics and motion studies to make housewives’ tasks easier. She created new tools and new layout for kitchens that cut work time down from a day to only a few hours. It gave women more time pursue exciting interests. Lillian Gilbreth’s designs are all around us. Whether it’s the ergonomic layout of your desk or the ‘ work triangle’ that determines the distance from the sink to the hob, her designs have been integrated into our daily lives.

SpringTerm 2020

Spring Term January 2020

Happy New Year everybody!

We will regularly update our web pages to keep you up to date with what we are doing throughout this year.

This term our topic is WW2. We will be studying this topic in detail throughout the term, culminating in our visit to Stockport Air Raid Shelter on 8th June. We will be studying Goodnight Mr Tom in English lessons and using this as a stimulus for lots of different writing opportunities. We will incorporate art, music and DT projects also. The children will also be able to complete projects at home, as part of their weekly homework tasks. We will be continuing to improve our SPAG skills throughout our work, concentrating on different aspects within our writing tasks. At this stage we will be revising many of the areas that children should be able to do.

Remember to keep using your Spelling Shed log in to practise your spellings every week.

https://play.edshed.com/

This is another really useful website for helping children with their spellings-

www.spellingframe.co.uk

In maths, we will continue working in our smaller groups, to address any areas where support may be needed. We will continue to develop and extend our skills in the 4 rules of number, our understanding of place value, decimals, percentages, and fractions and measurement. We will be using a mastery approach to focus on the using and applying aspects of maths through reasoning and explanation.

 

Please remember to encourage your child to carry on practising their times tables up to 12×12 as it is essential that they have rapid recall of all tables facts, including the inverse. Encourage them to go on TTRockstars every week to have fun and practise at the same time. Try and beat the other class in Battle of the Bands.

There are a variety of great websites to help with revision in year 6. Use your log in for Discovery Learning regularly to help you with any areas of year 6 work that you may need extra practise on. If you need a log in and password please see Mrs Lynch.

 

In science, we will be completing our work on electricity and begin our work on  Light and Sight.

In the Light and Sight unit children will learn about how light travels and that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes, or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes. They will learn that shiny or reflective surfaces alter the direction in which light travels. Children will have the opportunity to solve problems related to everyday life about how light travels and how we see. Children will also investigate and explain the shapes of shadows, and relate this to light travelling in straight lines.

Autumn Term Update Y6

Autumn Term  Second half term update 2019

Welcome to another busy, but exciting half term in year 6.

This half term, in English we are looking at The Arrival by Shaun Tan. We have written letters, character descriptions, diary entries, short play scripts and we will be writing a longer story built around the central character’s journey to another country.
We will be continuing to improve our SPAG skills throughout our work, concentrating on different aspects within our writing tasks.

Remember to keep using your Spelling Shed log in to practise your spellings.

https://play.edshed.com/

spellingframe.co.uk is another wonderful website that will help you learn all the Y5 and Y6 words.

In maths, we will continue working in our three smaller groups, to address any areas where support may be needed. We will continue to develop and extend our skills in the 4 rules of number, our understanding of place value, decimals,  fractions and measurement. We will be using a mastery approach to focus on the using and applying aspects of maths through reasoning and explanation. The children’s verbal reasoning and explanation skills are improving rapidly and many are becoming increasingly confident in explaining their methods and ideas to their group.

In science, we will be working on a unit called Changing Circuits. Children will use recognised symbols in circuit diagrams correctly. They will discuss analogies and offer their own explanations for the results of their investigations about altering brightness of bulbs and volume of buzzers. They will describe how to do this in a variety of ways including changing the number of components, battery voltage, or the properties of the wires in the circuits.

We are still working on our geography-led topic on North America. We will be learning about the physical and human elements of this continent and investigate aspects such as climate and population. We have studied many aspects so far and produced amazing artwork on buildings and totem poles. The standard of homework has been wonderful and some has been displayed in the cloakroom.

 

Parents please remember to encourage your child to carry on practising their times tables up to 12×12 as it is essential that they have rapid recall of all tables facts, including the inverse. Encourage them to go on TTRockstars every week to have fun and practise at the same time.

Homework-

Homework will continue to be set on a Friday and it must be brought back into school by the following Wednesday. The children will also be bringing home their reading books every day and it is vitally important that they read every day to improve fluency. We are really working on the children’s comprehension so it would be great if you could ask them questions about their books every time you read with them.

We keep track of the homework and reading on charts in the classroom that are linked to the assertive mentoring scheme that we use in school. In order to achieve a green mark their homework MUST be completed and handed in on WEDNESDAY. The children now have the opportunity to attend a lunchtime homework club on a Wednesday and a Thursday.

 

We will be doing P.E. on Fridays with the sports coach, so the children need their kits in school on Fridays.  We will also try and fit in another lesson in the week, so it would be best to keep the kit in school every day.

Just a reminder that school P.E. kit comprises of a white t-shirt, black shorts and pumps and if P.E. is taking place outside and the weather is cold, the children are allowed to wear dark jogging bottoms and trainers. All jewellery must be removed for P.E.
