Year 6

In Year 6 this term, we are learning how to read and write a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, including writing to persuade and developing characters.  We’ll be reading Sky Hawk by Gill Lewis and The Secret of Nightingale Wood by Lucy Strange.

 

In mathematics, we’re focusing on: mental calculations, place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions and geometry. We welcome all the support you are able to give your child at home, but would like to ensure that you help your child by continuing the methods they are being taught in school.  If you would like to know the methods your child is being taught, please do not hesitate to ask.

 

This term, Mahogany class will be leading an assembly: this will highlight the hard work they have been doing.  We are looking forward to them having the opportunity to share how they are going to embrace new challenges this year and be the best that they can be. 

 

In science, we will be learning about all living things and light; in history, we will be learning about The Mayans civilisation and in geography the children are studying the physical and human geography of Mexico. Please encourage your child to read about these topics at the library or complete online research – remember that the children can borrow two books at a time from the Active Learning Library.

 

Many thanks for all the support you give your child.  It is very important that we continue to work in partnership with you to ensure they make the most of their learning opportunities. Year Six is an important year as they are nearing the end of their learning journey at Penn Wood School and will be sitting SATs in the summer term.  We expect your child to be in school on time, with their homework completed, and having read for at least thirty minutes the previous night. This will ensure that the day starts smoothly.

 

If you have any concerns or worries during the school year, please arrange a time with the school office to meet with your child’s teacher or speak to them at the end of the school day.  As usual, the autumn term will be full and enjoyable.
