Oak Class - Mrs Rowlands - Year 6




Autumn Term

The final of Maesglas Primary School will be quite challenging but fun, we have lots of exciting activities planned and some fabulous educational trips to develop our learning further. As part of our transition to high school we will also complete a variety of activities to begin this process. We have a large year 6 cohort this year so we have two year 6 classes, we are very keen for all children to interact and in preparation for high school we will be moving between different classes for lessons.


This term is our first term in Year 6 but we still need to hit the ground running! We will be studying The Industrial Revolution and as such lots of our learning will be cross curricular.


 


Over the course of this term we will be revising and further developing our writing skills by writing a non-chronological report and completing many activities based on the book Street Child by Berlie Doherty, a book set in the Victorian era. Whilst delving into this book we will complete a number of activities such as; looking at characterisation, diary writing and writing setting descriptions.


 


We will be starting the term focusing on number. We will be working hard on place value, multiplication and division, addition and rounding. We will also use our data handling skills completing bar charts and line graphs and have lots of opportunities to develop our reasoning and problem solving skills. 

 


During this term we will be embarking on an exciting Science project linked to microbiology which will see some fun experiments being undertaken to support our scientific development. We will be lucky enough to conduct a variety of different experiments that will help us discover the Science behind bacteria and how systems in our body work. One experiment we will undertake will show us which parts of the school are the cleanest and which are the dirtiest, were do you think will be the dirtiest?


 


Homework will be set on a Friday, this will be on MyMaths so please make sure your child knows their log on and has access to complete it, we need to make sure we are in a routine ready for high school.

 



We have P.E lessons twice a week. Monday is our outdoor games lesson and Friday is our indoor lesson. Children will need a white t-shirt and black shorts/joggers plus appropriate outdoor footwear. Please ensure that kit is in school labelled correctly with names. Year 6 will also have other opportunities so kit should always be in school.

 

I am always here to help so please don’t hesitate to ask if you have some queries.


Thank you for your support

Kind Regards

Mrs Rowlands
