Welcome to Year 6!
Although we're in the last half term of school, there is still work going on!! Our new topic is Walls and Barricades, and is about both physical and mental barriers. In preparation for High School, more work will be independent research and presentation linked to this theme.
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 angles, and will be moving on to shape and space 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 time and timetables!
