Welcome back to Year 6, Stingray Class!
This term our topic is Stargazers and we are reading Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce as our text. All of our learning is linked to our topic so we are fully immersed in outer space!
We are focusing on our speed of recall of times tables, so we are testing times tables daily during our Maths lessons. Spellings are from the Upper Key Stage 2 spelling list and will be tested every Thursday. Times tables and spellings will be the focus for our homework this term, but we are also conducting a Science investigation about the Moon, where the children will need to document what the Moon looks like over a 28 day period. You will see space to record Friday, Saturday and Sunday on your homework sheets.
We are currently doing PE on a Thursday and we are focusing on multi-skills this term. Can we improve our speed, agility and control? Can we improve our teamwork and persistence?
Accelerated Reader is up and running again, so please read as often as possible at home and we will test regularly in class to see how well you have recalled your reading. Home/school contact books are being kept in school for the moment but we are recording your books in these.
We have completed some great work so far, including some space art, information texts on the Solar system and we are currently writing myths and legends inspired by Space. We cannot wait to show you the end result!
If you have any questions in regards to home learning, please feel free to arrange a meeting after school to discuss or clarify any issues.
