This term we will focus a lot on preparing the children for SATs. This means that we will do a lot of preparation work for writing moderation, covering a range of texts and ensuring our writing meets the national expectations for year 6. We will also look at how to approach the Reading and SPaG papers. This means the children will have more focused lessons and homework to support their revision as they will be tested on work from across the Key Stage. Please support your child to complete Reading , Spelling and Grammar homework this term.
As in English we will be working towards preparing the children for SAT tests. We will continue to follow the Year 6 curriculum which will include aspects of algebra, geometry and statistics this term as well as revisiting calculation skills, decimals, fractions and percentages. Please support your child with homework tasks, learning their times tables and mathematical facts.
We continue to build on social skills and developing our understanding of rights and responsibilities. We will continue to support children to children to recognise their emotions and their needs; looking at the needs of others and how our behaviours impact on the wider community.
ART / DT We will link our art work to our topics and this term we will look at drawing and 3D sculpture linked to our work on the Maya.
This is an important term for the children and any support you can give your child will help them to feel confident and well prepared for the SATs in May. There are a number of things you can do to support at home: ensure that a routine is set up for homework and revision; have a quiet space to work; do a little work each night so that it is planned and not left to the last minute; use the revision guides and websites that we recommend to support working at home; encourage your child to discuss any issues before the work is due in so they can have help at lunchtimes; hand in work on time for marking and finally remember to keep up with daily reading and spelling work.
