Year 6 - 2018 - 2019 : Tigers Class
Term 2 Update
The Tigers have settled in to their new class and are working very hard with Mr Brundle and Mrs McCarthy. The children are already getting excited about Christmas and our forthcoming pantomime, which this year will be Jack and the Beanstalk.
In maths, we have been consolidating formal methods in the four operations and using the inverse to check our answers. We have also been solving problems involving fractions, decimals and ratio and proportion. In English we have nearly completed our work on Goodnight Mister Tom and have recently been using a video clip as a stimulus for our current unit. The children have produced some very impressive pieces of writing!
In topic work we continue to study the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and have completed some thorough research, ready to construct our Viking longboats. The children have continued to extend their knowledge of the United Kingdom and this term we have been looking at coastlines. Science this term has included Light and our next unit will be Evolution and Inheritance. At the end of November we will be visiting Dungeness Power Station for a science workshop.
We continue to appreciate any home support you can give your child in terms of reading, times tables and homework, which is set on a Friday. May we also remind you that all the children have access to the Pixl Times Table App which can be downloaded to any device or played on a pc. Regular use can really improve their recall.
PE continues to be on a Friday afternoon, however please ensure your child has their PE kit at school throughout the week, as we often have extra opportunities. Please also ensure that your child has the correct uniform and is dressed appropriately for the weather.
We look forward to seeing you at our Christmas decoration afternoon on Wednesday 5th December or before that date if your child wins a merit. However, please fell free to talk to either of us or arrange an appointment if you have any concerns or questions.
We're looking forward to a happy and successful year.
Thank you for your support!
Mr Brundle and Mrs McCarthy
