Year 6: Oak, Rowan


25th September 2020

Welcome to Year 6!


Once again, it has been a great week of settling back into routines, working well and enjoying school.


After finishing our newspaper reports, we are now moving on to non-chronological writing. This week, we have looked at a model text about the Sun, the Moon and the Earth, which will allow us to - next week - start writing our own texts about the planets in our Solar System. Maths has focused on revisiting the multiplication and division that was covered in Year 5; we will be looking at some new learning from next week.


PE has again included our daily mile (another five miles completed!) and a session of hockey (see some more pics below), so we've been quite active and hope to keep this up through the year! In our science lesson, we looked at how the planets fit into our Solar System and how they move in relation to each other and the Sun. We have also briefly looked at the Moon's phases as we did some chalk drawings in forest school (while also continuing to whittle!). 


Homework: Your child should be bringing their homework book home with them. We expect them to do the following:


  • Thirty minutes of TTRS
  • Spellings: Please choose and practise another ten spellings from the year 3/4 spelling list (in the cover of the homework book), using one of the methods from the spelling menu (also in the homework book)
  • Daily reading (at least five times!), preferably to an adult
