Homework

Maths: pages 8 and 15

The Term Continues Apace

 

So, here we are, week four: two thirds of the way through the first half term of the 22/23 academic year (by the end of the week anyway). Here's where we are and what's coming up:

 

English: Using a conversation poem between a wolf and a dog we will be exploring how to create emotion in a poem and how to use specific vocabulary to allow the audience to understand the narrator's point of view. 

 

Maths: We are now working with the four operations and children will develop their confidence and their range of strategies to solve these problems. As well as this, we will have our first assessment week where we will sit some previous SATs papers. Look out for the video which will be put on the website where I will talk through some of the more taxing questions from the arithmetic paper. 

 

History: We will continue to explore the second World War through the eyes of a child. We will look at how the war came to a close and the joyous celebration which took place on VE Day. 

 

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to me. 

 

Thanks,

 

Mr Tatum

Welcome to Red Kite Class 22/23!

 

Dear Red Kites,

 

It's going to be wonderful to see you all in your shiny new shoes and your plush new uniforms - I am very much looking forward to welcoming you back and into Y6!

 

We've got an learning-packed half term coming up and we'll be at it from the get go (which means we'll be working from the very beginning); this is what you have to look forward to:

 

English - The House of 100 Clocks. An intriguing tale of a girl, her father and her pet parrot, Orbit, who move into the mysterious house. We will be exploring character and setting through diary writing, imagining interviews between characters and describing characters and settings.

 

Maths - As with all years, we start with learning about place value. This will give the us tools to access the later units that follows. We will be looking at numbers up to 10,000,000 (ten million), different ways to partition numbers, strategies for placing very larger numbers on a number line, powers of ten as well as using Gattegno charts to help us better understand our number system.

 

Science - We will be learning about the work of Carl Linnaeus and how he created a system of classification for all living things which has helped name all plant and animals since its creation nearly 300 years ago!

 

Guided Reading - To start, it's one of our favourites: Good Night Mr Tom. I won't give too much away, but it really is a story that has a little bit of everything.

 

 

History - Our guided reading text fits in beautifully with our history learning, as we will be investigating WWII. We will look at the reasons for the war, what it meant to the whole population of the UK at the time and how the conflict was eventually resolved. 

 

Some things to note - Library and PE is Wednesdays, you will wear PE kit to school on these days. Please make sure you bring a water bottle, your Reading Record (it's currently in the class waiting for you) and any stationary you need every day as well as a can-do attitude and an intention to Be The Best You Can Be!

 

Thanks,

 

Mr Tatum
