Year 6 - Pankhurst & Spurgeon
These are some of the things we will be learning during this year
In Literacy the children will be using their growing vocabulary, grammar & punctuation skills in a number of writing composition and reading comprehension topics. We will also look at transcription and using a thesaurus, and continue to focus on good handwriting & presentation.
In our maths lessons the children will continue to work on their number skills: identifying factors by using divisibility rules and converting vulgar fractions to decimal numbers. The will continue to use the operations: addition, subtraction, division and multiplication for whole numbers and fractions. All of our number work will involve solving word problems or ‘real-life’ maths stories.
In geometry, data and measure lessons the children will be calculating the area of rectangles and using pi to calculate the circumference of a circle. They will continue to learn about and draw accurately 2D shapes, such as hexagons and triangles. This will incorporate measuring accurately and using a pair of compasses. The children will also use timetables and calendars to solve problems.
In Physical Education we will complete a number of units of study. We will be working on Multi-skills for athletics, cricket, basketball and tennis. This will involve a range of activities to develop the children’s agility, stamina, co-ordination and balance. These skills are essential in all sports. These lessons will be outside, weather permitting. Please ensure that you child has suitable P.E kit for this e.g. tracksuit top and bottoms.
PLEASE SEND YOUR CHILD INTO SCHOOL WITH THEIR PE KIT ON WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY
