And we’re off!


It has been another busy start to the New Year for Year 6! We have kicked off the year with some super diary writing about our New Year celebrations as well as starting our explanation texts about shadows.  The children have enjoyed exploring light and shadow through some fun science experiments as well as looking at how the human eye works,  They are looking forward to journeying further around the human body and looking at the heart and lungs and the impact of exercise and drugs on both organs.

During the spring term Year 6 are invited to attend extra Maths workshops to give them an opportunity to practice some of the key maths skills in preparation for the KS2 SATs.  Children are invited to attend:

  • Early morning drop-in maths from 8:15am -8:45am every day.  The children will be able to access SumDog as well as discuss any topics that they may be struggling on.
  • Tuesday Afterschool Maths Club will continue from 3.10pm – 4.10pm.  Mr Weal and I will lead a group focusing on mental maths strategies and problem solving as well as revisiting the formal written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division

In addition, all of the children in Year 6 have been issued with CGP revision guides as well as a workbook for Maths, Grammar and Reading.  I will be using these to set children one task for Maths, Grammar and Reading homework each week.  This will be set on a Friday and must be returned each week for us to discuss in class. If the children would like to complete extra revision in the Math’s workbooks, then this can be marked, by parents, using the scheme in the back of the books.  If any of the children have struggled with a topic then please bring the workbooks in so that I can catch up with them during assembly time.

I have also added 4 arithmetic practice papers as well as a grammar check-up test, which can be completed at home and brought into school to be marked. This can be found in the ‘SAT’s resources’ file below.  Over the next few weeks I will continue to add resources and PowerPoints to this folder to support the children with any extra maths work that they complete at home.

For even more revision and practice you could also visit the sites below for fun maths and grammar games:

Keep up the hard work!
