Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome back to school and into 2021!
Our theme this term is 'Out of this World' and will cover the obvious space links (recapping the science work done last year) as well as how the Space Race affects our day-to-day lives. If you follow the hyperlinks on the sheets, you can find out some extra information. I am really looking forwards to seeing what everyone has found out about over the holidays.
In English we will be doing an increasing amount of writing, covering various aspects of grammar and punctuation along the way. Please remember that reading is vital to this process so please make sure that your child is a reading a minimum of three times a week, either with you or with a discussion following independent reading.
In maths, we are finishing our work on fractions, and will be moving on to decimals and percentages after that. It is important that children see the link between the different aspects of their maths work, so looking for 'everyday' maths when watching the TV, reading newspapers or if you are able to get out and about is really beneficial.
Remember to use the half termly KIRF to practice key skills. This half term is all about fractions!
