Mississippi - Year Six
WOW- we are half way through the Year already! Time certainly does fly when you’re having fun…and working hard! This half term we will be continuing with our Vikings topic. We will finish reading Beowulf, which we have really enjoyed so far! We will soon be going to Murton Park to experience a Viking Day- please make sure you have sent in the letter and money. In English, we will be focussing on using lots of different grammar techniques in our writing in preparation for SATs. In Maths, we will start by looking at ratio and proportion then we will be learning about how to convert units of measure. We will also be revising lots of the things we have learnt already in preparation for SATs. In Science, we will continue to learn about animals and plants, and we will begin to look at microorganisms. In PSHE, we will start with our Mindmate lesson on Strong Emotions then we will move onto our topic on mental health and emotional wellbeing. In Spanish we will be continuing with numbers to 30 and how to say the date/birthdays. PE will be on a Thursday however, with the weather being so great, we may have PE on another day so please make sure PE kit is always in school.
This is a really important half term for the children with it being the last full half term before SATs. I will be sending extra homework and the children will be given revision books for Grammar/spelling and Maths to complete. The children will be told which pages to do and it is expected that the children bring their booklets back in to school as we will be marking them in class.
I’m really pleased with the progress the children have made so far. They have worked hard! Let’s keep it up!
Please keep practising:
· Times tables
· Telling the time
· Finding percentages when shopping (eg. 20% off)
Remember Mathletics and keep reading!
