Reading - Everyday.
Spellings - New spellings are given out every Friday and the spelling test will be the following Friday.
Children will also be given a piece of maths, grammar or reading homework on Friday to be completed for Tuesday.
At The Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks that we set as homework.
Obviously the level of your engagement will depend on your child’s age but we expect you to take an active part in all aspects of homework and, where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g. by signing the Home/School Reading Record Book.)
The routines of reading every day, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child’s established home routine. Short, sharp periods of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.
Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc.) Please give some thought to where your child works at home.
Please see below the extensive list of websites that your child can visit to consolidate and extend his/her learning.
Our Autumn Topic is 'Viva Brazil'. We will be exploring the location of Brazil and concentrating on the key physical and human characteristics and the major cities. This topic will incorporate many areas of the curriculum including: Art, Design Technology, ICT, Maths and English.
In English, we will be improving our comprehension skills and expanding our grammatical terminology through reading various classical and contemporary texts. We will be applying our grammatical understanding in our own written pieces including: stories, letters, reports and poems.
In Mathematics we will be securing our understanding of the number system whilst tackling difficult problems. We will also be practising our times tables and learning about fractions, decimals and percentages. During our Shape and Measures lessons, we will be learning how to measure angles with protractors, construct pie charts and calculating missing angles within a shape. We will be developing greater understanding of how to apply these mathematic skills in word problems.
In Science, we will be looking at 'Evolution and Inheritance'.
In Computing, we will be learning to develop computer applications using code.
The KS2 National Tests (SATs) will be taking place from Monday 13th May 2019 to Friday 17th May 2019. Children will be assessed on their Maths, Reading, Grammar and Spelling knowledge. Please ensure your child is in school for this important week and the weeks leading up to them.
This term we have PE on a Friday and we are swimming on a Tuesday. Full kits for these activities are required.
Thank you in anticipation for your support during this busy school year!
If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to a member of the Class Six Team.
