English homework is given out on a Monday and is due in on a Friday. It will alternate between comprehension and grammar questions.
Children should have one reading book from our reading scheme collection and one reading book from the class library. Children are free to change their books as necessary so they are encouraged to bring their books to school everyday. In Year 6 we expect all children to be reading for at least 10 minutes each day.
Please see the Curriculum page for more detailed information about the curriculum Year 6 children will follow.
Mathematics: Currently in Mathematics we are looking at Number and Place Value. We have been focusing on different representations of number, and the values of digits up to the ten millions column. We shall also be moving on to comparing numbers up to ten million, as well as number sequences including negative numbers.
English: In our English lessons we are studying The Arrival by Shaun Tan. We shall be using this book to learn new comprehension strategies, as well as looking at the Year 6 punctuation and grammar strands.
Humanities: Over the Autumn term, our focus in humanities is The Second World War. We shall be looking at: How the war started, The countries involved, influential Leaders as well as key/ famous Battles and how they were won.
