Homework will be given to children in Year 6 each week, on a Friday. The homework each week will include- 4 home reads (with an adult and reading log signed). It is advisable to listen to your child read and ask them questions related to what they are reading, so that there is a focus on comprehension and understanding rather than simply the amount read. In Year 6, we use VIPERS for reading questions . Click the link at the bottom to access a copy of these to practise with your child.

As outlined in the SATs presentation, Children will also be expected to complete a piece of maths, reading and grammar homework from their SATs revision guides each week. These will be outlined on a Friday and should return to school no later than the following Wednesday. 

 

Year 6's learning for Summer term

Mathematics

After Easter, Year 6 will be working on ratio, algebra and geometry (shape, space and measure). Within each lesson we will continue to practise our counting and will be keeping up our fluency through mental maths and number sense. Children, during various times of the week, will have access to a number of our apps that can also be accessed at home. These are TTRockstars and Mangahigh. 

English

During Summer term, we will begin with a reading focus that revisits a range of text types. Children will develop their ability to explain and justify answers by using evidence from the text to support them. Later in the term, we will continue to develop our writing skills through the narrative: Sleeper and the Spindle and the non-fiction text: How our Bodies Work. 

Science.

In Year 6 science our final topic will be our bodies, this will build upon children's prior learning and will provide opportunity for investigation and experiment. Children will have further opportunity to work in our school science lab.

Humanities 

Children will be completing a Geography topic, that looks at the developing nature of globalisation across the world. They will continue to build on their map-reading skills. 

Computing

Children will continue to build on their programming knowledge (from crumble) and apply this using scratch and the lego-we-do kits. 

PSHE

Year 6, along with the whole school, will be focussing on the 'communication and team work' part of our RESPECT character traits. 

French

On a weekly basis, children will continue to participate in French lessons- in which they will practise their speaking skills and build up their French vocabulary. Summer term's topic is sports and hobbies.

Art

Children will be looking at the work of Romero Britto as inspiration in order to create their own printing pattern in arcrylic paint. 

PE

Summer term will see Year 6 taking part in striking and fielding games. Weather permiting, there will be lots of outdoor PE lessons inclusing the use of the field.

 

The Summer term will also hold lots of exciting events as Year 6's time at St George's begins to draw to a close.

Look out for information regarding the celebrations. 

We have created a special Condover Hall trip page for our end of year residential trip.  You can read that by clicking here.
