Year 6 is an important year for learning; it is the year when children should become competent and confident in all areas, but particularly in reading, writing and maths. We will be working hard learning new skills, practicing these skills and applying them across all lessons and subjects.
Our first topic will be Hola Mexico and what an exciting topic this will be! We will learn about the history of Mexico, different foods from Mexico, the festival of the dead (scary) and anything and everything there is to learn about Mexico.
Homework: Homework goes home on a Friday and needs to be back in school by the following Wednesday. Homework not completed on time will be completed during break times.
PE: PE this term will be on a Tuesday. Please ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school. Also please remember no earrings.
Author of the half term: Our author of the half term is Louis Sachar. We will be reading his award-winning book - Holes, as this links to our topic 'Hola Mexico'. This is a wonderful book based, but he has written many other books, so get reading!.
Reading books: All children need to bring their reading book to school every day. Please listen to your child read and encourage them to summarise their reading and to make predictions. It is also really important to discuss the meanings of words in order to develop childrens vocabulary. Children in year 6 are encouraged to write in their own reading records to show their understanding of the book they are reading through writing a summary or a prediciton. These reading records will be checked regularly and children will be asked to fill in these records during break time if they are not being completed at home.
