After a very successful year, Year 6 are very much looking forward to a busy, final term at Marden Vale. We are all getting ready for our Year 6 production ‘The Pirates of the Curry-Bean’ and preparing ourselves for our important transition into Secondary School.

We also look forward to our annual Sports Day and this year, for the first time, running our own stalls at the Summer Fair - to raise money for the Year 6 Leavers BBQ.

As well as this, we will be writing and performing our own rap song for our Leaver’s assembly and preparing our very own leaver’s speeches.

A very exciting (yet anxious) time for us all, but one I’m sure we will all enjoy tremendously!

Welcome back!

Our focus this term will be the SATs Tests that all Year 6s take nationally, however our topic will continue to have a Victorian focus.

All our topic work will be closely linked the Inventions and Inventors of the Victorian era including the Rainhill Trials and how they revolutionized travel.

In Literacy, we are going to be writing our own fantasy stories based on Lewis Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland. We will revise, revisit and use our growing spelling, grammar and punctuation skills whilst we are writing to help us prepare for SATs week.

In Numeracy lessons, we have planned to revisit all areas of the curriculum to aid revision. We will be working on formal written methods daily and, of course, you will be practicing your times table recall at home daily too.

Our Science focus this term is on Light and we will be investigating all aspects including how we see colour and how light is reflected and refracted. The children will be using a range of scientific thinking to plan and carry out investigations.

 

Homework in Year 6

With SATs only 9 teaching weeks away, homework expectations are going to increase just as we promised back in September.

Alongside reading as much as possible at home, children in Year 6 will continue to have weekly spellings, as well as SATs revision papers to complete. These will be practice papers and whilst they do state a time limit, we do not want these to be adhered to. Completing practice papers will enable children to practice their skills and become familiar with SATs style questions and how they are worded. On a Friday, we will then work through their answers, identify any misconceptions and work to correct them.

In addition to this, Year 6 will be bringing home three arithmetic activities a week. These are not more than 10 quick questions, which they are capable of solving, to keep their basic skills up to scratch.

These will be sent home on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. They will need to be handed in the following day so that we can identify any areas of weakness and act on them quickly.

Please help to support your child in completing their homework and let them use a method they are familiar with.

 

General Reminders

  • We have planned a mock SATs week to begin on 29th February. This will give the children the opportunity to experience what the actual week will be like and to familiarize them with their supporting adults. During this week, please ensure that your child is well-rested, eats breakfast each day and comes to school ready to do their best.

  • Please ensure your child has their correct PE kit in school and that all items are clearly labelled.

    These next few weeks are going to be full of hard work and will undoubtedly be tiring but together, if we work as a team, we will succeed!

    Thank you for your continued support.

Attendance Cup winners for Term 3!

Attendance Cup winners for Term 3! 1

Last week, 6T received the attendance cup which meant we had the best attendance in class out of any class in the school in that week. Surprisingly, we were also awarded the Best Class of the Term due to our great attendance across the whole of Term 3. There is now fierce competition for being awarded it in Term 4 but we are determined not to have it taken away from us.

“I am so proud of my class,” reported Mrs Townsend, “It’s great that they are so keen to come to school and learn. I only hope they keep it up so we can keep the award next term! Keep up the good work guys!”
