Welcome to Year 6
Miss Evans, Mrs McKevitt and Mr Parsons are looking forward to supporting our year 6 children with their SATs this half term. These are not too far away now so we continue emphasise how important attendance is. Being in school every day is vital to avoid missing important topics as there is still lots to learn before moving on to high school. Children will continue to practise their arithmetic skills, reasoning and problems solving, developing their reading skills and demonstrate their knowledge of SPAG.
Our main topic this half term is, ‘Global Trade’. Throughout this topic, children will find out about goods and services which are imported and exported and the countries involved. They will look at locating places on different maps; identifying climate features of the places as well as looking at the importance of Fair Trade.
Our Science topic is ‘Light’. We will explore the way that light travels, how it helps us to see and different functions of the parts of the eye. We will also look at weather creating shadows and the speed of light in lightning.
We hope you are ready for your final term of hard work at Leamington. We are so proud of you all already and encourage you to continue with the hard work and effort you are putting in. Year 6 is a very challenging (but rewarding!) year.
Some important information for Year 6 is:
- Children have logins to Maths.co.uk, Maths Whizz and Spag.com and should access these daily at home.
- Children should be revising for their SATs each night.
- Home Reader books will be given out every Friday and should be returned to school to be changed every Friday. Children should read daily at home.
- Please ensure children have trainers or pumps in school daily so we can complete PE and outdoor, active lessons as much as possible. (PE kits provided in school.)
Year 6 teachers would like to encourage children to bring in water bottles and a piece of fruit for snack, if they wish.
