Grinshill

Summer Term 2021

Teacher: Mrs H Heaton Cooper

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Row

Welcome back to school after the Easter break! I hope you are all ready for a busy term ahead! This term, our theme will be Extreme Environments and will include work on a variety of areas including deserts, polar regions, natural disasters and the history of exploration. In Year 6 we will be learning about this topic through the various curriculum areas to develop our skills.

English

 

 We aim to use our topic work to complement our writing units this term. A priority will be to develop our higher level vocabulary. We will be covering narrative writing, shifts in formality and juxtaposition, classical poetry and explanations.

Maths

 

 In Maths, we will be extending and revising our knowledge of the number system. Our focus will be revision of all areas of mathematics in preparation for Year 7. We will also have an additional focus on investigative and project-based maths tasks as well as lots of problem solving and reasoning. With this in mind, the accurate knowledge of multiplication tables will make a massive difference to the children’s self-confidence.

Topic

 

 Our topic work aims to extend across the additional curriculum areas. We are going to study the world in terms of the variety of environments on the planet (most especially those that are considered to be hostile or most difficult for us to survive within) as well as natural disasters and also the human need to explore and the resilience when doing so.

Reading

 

All children will need to continue to read their individual books regularly at home. We have daily reading in our guided reading sessions as well as lots of cross-curricular opportunities.

Home Learning

Please continue to support your child with their weekly spellings. We aim for reading at least 3 times per week. Reading will continue to be a major focus in Grinshill this term.

Please continue to encourage your child to practise their multiplication and division facts (at least) to 12 x 12 frequently.

Homework will be given weekly in preparation for Year 7. Please support us in ensuring your child completes what they can and returns the work to school on the appropriate day. You will be informed of this via your child’s reading journal.

 

Don’t forget!

 

· Reading books and reading journals (every day)

· Spelling given on a Monday and stuck into reading journals to be learnt ready for a test on Fridays

· PE is on Tuesday

Lockdown printing and sewing.

The class have embarked on a huge art project as part of their lasting legacy.

The class have been given 4 massive blank canvases and have been asked to come up with their own ideas of how to fill them.  They decided on the following, Under the Sea, Space, Abstract and that the final board would be individual designs.

We still have some tweaking and final touches to do so watch this space for the final master pieces!
