Year 6 Spring Term
A warm welcome back
from the year 6 team! Congratulations on making the big time on ITV!
We hope you have had a relaxing holiday and the children are
well rested and ready for the next term.
Now it is the countdown to SATs, we have many topics to
cover and the children need to make sure they keep on top of work set. If your
children do encounter any difficulties, please do encourage them to ask for
In Literacy we will be focusing mainly on
improving our writing across many types of texts. Much of literacy will be done
through topic work. There are some real authors emerging in year 6!
In Maths we have many subjects to
cover. Please do keep encouraging your children to learn their multiplications,
as they will make much of the maths we cover quicker and easier. I have been
blown away by their increasingly positive attitude to maths and real progress is
Our Science topics for this term are: evolution and the circulatory
system and exercise.
In Geography we will look in detail at Jamaica and Poland
and will compare their diverse environments.
In History we will
carry on from WWII, working our way to present day and thinking about the
changes which have taken place in our area.
We are lucky enough to have some great helpers aboard in
year 6: Harriet is a student from Kingston University, Sara McDonald Wandsworth
maths consultant and as always Millie is supporting the class daily.
Look forward to a
great term ahead!
