The children are settling back in really well and are chomping at the bit to learn.

In Year 6 this term we will be learning about the following topics

 

Literacy - Narrative- Fiction Genre -Eye of the Wolf, Grammar, Spellings, Comprehensions.

Please support your child by listening to them read at least 3 times per week. Discuss their reading book.

Visit the local Library.


Numeracy -Number and Place Value, Calculation (Addition,Subtraction, Multiplication,Division )Decimals,Word problems, Geometry, Shape,Time, Statistics (handling data) Problem Solving. Mental Multiplication

I would be grateful for any help and support that you can give to your children whilst they continue to brush up on their tables skills. Tables are very important and they need to have good recall of their multiplication and division facts.
