Hello and welcome back for another exciting year in Maesglas Primary School. We are pleased to be given the opportunity to be part of their learning this year. 

As you can appreciate this is an important year for your child as it is their last year in Maesglas Primary School. The final year 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. Therefore, we have high expectations of the children and the progress they need to make. 

We will continue to provide you with information about how you can support your child at home and please feel free to come and see us if you have any questions. 



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.

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. 

 

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, where do you think will be the dirtiest?


Homework Folders

We will continue to send weekly homework home with your child. This will be to consolidate work completed in class, research new topics or work specifically aimed at practising a skill learnt in school. 


Water Bottles

We try to encourage the children to drink plenty during the school day and although we do provide some drinking cups it leads to a greater independence and confidence if the children can take control of their own water. Please can the children bring a named water bottle to school.


Thank you for taking the time to read this information.  We look forward to working with you, to create a happy and fun environment where your child will continue to develop and grow. Any questions then just pop in and see us.


Thank you for your support

Kind Regards

Miss Charles

We will be starting the term focusing on area and perimeter which will allow us to consolidate our multiplication skills learnt last term. We will be working hard on the four operations of maths, multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. We will also be looking at a variety of different shapes in order to rotate, translate and reflect them and using coordinates to solve problems. Alongside all this we will have lots of opportunities to develop our reasoning and problem solving skills.



Our topic for this term will be "I'm a Y6 - Get me out of here!" and we will focus on looking at a contrasting location - namely Botswana. We will also be taking part in transition activities with The John Frost School.



In Science we will be focusing on the topic of ‘Infinity & Beyond’. Our approach to science is very hands on so we have lots of practical experiments planned where we can develop our understanding of the world around us. Here we will learn about; the different types of planets, how craters are formed, how the surface of Mars is formed, how the different planets orbit the sun and what type of protection astronauts need from UV rays when working in space.



We have PE twice weekly so please make sure your child has their kit so that they can participate. We have outdoor PE on a Wednesday afternoon. Friday Afternoon is our Indoor PE session, however we may go outside if the weather is good. This term we will be getting ready for Sports Day and practising striking and fielding games. 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.


Outdoor Games Kit: Tracksuit, white t-shirt and trainers

Indoor PE Kit: Shorts and a white t-shirt



This term the children have been set a number of tasks on MyMaths, rather than one a week, they should work through these at their own pace (there are extras to keep them going) but should have completed 7 tasks by the end of the term. Homework will generally focus on either maths skills that will support class work or a project to support topic work and we all have our own login and password. Please ensure that your child is given time to complete this homework, it will be valuable not only in support of class work but in preparation for High School.


This year we are using Nessy to develop our spelling skills, please encorage your child to use the Nessy website as often as possible. We have our own personalised log in which tracks individual spelling patterns that they need to be practising.


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

 

Thank you for your support
