Friday 1st March
Happy Friday everybody! It's been a busy first week back for us all here in the Year 6 team! We have started new groups for English and Maths which will focus us all on our SATs targets for the next few weeks. Only 9 teaching weeks left - it's going to fly by!
We are continuing to revise our reading and GPS skills in English lessons and have been focusing our attention on the past and present progressive tense this week. Ask your child all about Rod Stewart's song 'Sailing' to jog their memory
We have sent home a copy of the KS2 spelling words this week. We are asking children to focus on these at their own pace for homework instead of weekly spelling tests. We will then be using these spelling patterns as a focus for lessons in school. You can also see the lists below:
We've been looking at area and perimeter in maths of rectangles, triangles and composite shapes. On Wednesday afternoon, we took advantage of the lovely weather we have been having and took the children outside to draw their own composite shapes on the playground using chalk.
Check back over the weekend to see some pictures of us making a mess of the playground!!

We've been practising and perfecting our arithmetic skills over the last few week's and we couldn't be any prouder of the effort levels of your children! Percentages and long division has been our particular focus and confidence levels are most definitely on the rise
