Year 6 Leopards
Welcome to the Year 6 Leopards!
My name is Mrs Coley and I am delighted to be teaching the Year 6 Leopards this year. Mrs Ward will also be helping us in Year 6. At the bottom of our class page, you will find lots of important information such as our class bulletin, homework grid, curriculum overview and lots of useful websites to support learning.
* PE - Our PE day is Thursday, however, it is important that PE kits are in school at all times.
* School Library - The Leopards are timetabled to visit the school library every Wednesday lunchtime. Don't forget to pick up a loyalty card for the chance to win a new book from the SMSJ bookshop!
* Homework is given out every Thursday and should be returned on Monday. All children have a homework book with a homework grid for the half term. Homework includes: home reading (3 parent signatures required), spellings (test every Monday), TTRockstars and one other piece to be completed.
Our value this half term is RESPONSIBILITY. Don't forget to complete your values task at home - it could be included on our next newsletter!
This half term, we will be learning...
This half term we will be studying the text 'Mission Survive' by Bear Grylls, through a range of exciting speaking and listening, reading and writing activities.
This half term the Leopards will be completing some SUPER pieces of writing. Through this work, they are showing that they are conscious of their reader and that they can choose appropriate vocabulary and features specific to the type of text that they are writing. These pieces of writing can be based on an exciting event that has happened in school, watching a video clip, listening to music or meeting a visitor (who has an incredible story to share).
This half term we will be covering the following areas in our maths lessons.
- place value
- addition methods
- subtraction methods
- multiplication methods
- division methods
Every morning from 8:40 - 9:05am, children get the opportunity to consolidate their maths skills and learn new maths skills by completing a magic maths activity. Within this activity they will complete 10 different maths questions, which increases their confidence and ensures that no maths skills are forgotten.
