Pupils in Year 6 are currently expected to read an appropriate book from home or school - at least five days per week and the equivalent of of ten pages per day is recommended. Reading a variety of fiction and non-fiction is encouraged, from novels to recipe books! Daily practice of spellings and unfamiliar times tables is also recommended.
What are we learning at the moment?
In Year 6 pupils have begun our new topic: EXTREME EARTH with a 'sparky start' - creating a tornado in a jar and model volcanoes that erupt! They also worked cooperatively to make large-scale artwork of these features, as well as a tsunami wave for the classroom wall. In geography, we have started to research such features and in English we looking the narrative 'The Wizard of Oz', from which we will innovate our own stories. In maths, we have begun to revise and extend our understanding of fractions.
