Year 6 - Eagles and Wolves

Summer Term 2022 

Welcome back! 

We hope you had a lovely Easter break and are ready to start the new half term at Cooks Spinney.

This page is designed to provide you with the information needed to make the year as successful as possible. 

Topics this half term:

English - This half term we are reading Letters from the Lighthouse by Emma Carroll. This exquisite, enthralling and endearing historical mystery novel is set in WWII times and illustrates Britain in the 1940s, and helps illuminate the stories of refugees at that time, and very poignantly, refugees today. Carroll is a superb voice in children's literature and her novels all have the feel of instant classics.

This year, writing will be taught through The Write Stuff approach by Jane Considine. This method allows pupils to improve their oracy and widen their vocabulary in every lesson, whilst deepening their understanding of writerly choices. 

Mathematics - This term, we are focusing on statistics and geometry. Pupils will be gathering, presenting and interpreting data through a range of different formats, writing appropriate and misleading questions, as well as investigating different types of triangles, quadrilaterals and other polygons. 

Geography - United Kingdom - Pupils will be looking at physical and human geography features in and around the United Kingdom, as well as located where the UK is on a world and European map. 

Science - Light

Knowledge Objectives:

  • Recognise that light appears to travel in straight lines
  • Use the idea that light travels in straight lines to explain that objects are seen because they give out or reflect light into the eye
  • Explain that we see things because light travels from light sources to our eyes or from light sources to objects and then to our eyes

PSHE - Relationships (different relationships, changing and growing, adulthood, independence, moving to secondary school).

  • What are the different relationships that we can have in our life?
  • How can we have positive, healthy relationships?
  • What is marriage?  What are the alternatives to marriage?
  • What is puberty?
  • How are babies made and how can they be cared for?

P.E - Activities will include fitness testing, swimming and football. Year 6 P.E days this year will on Mondays and Thursdays. Your child must wear their P.E. kit on these days to and from school. 

Failure to have it is likely to result in them not being able to participate in the lesson. In addition, children will not be able to participate if they do not have the correct P.E. kit. Please see the school website for more information on the P.E. kit requirements. If your child has their ears pierced, they will be required to either take out the earrings or cover them with tape for the lesson. Please remember Cooks Spinney only allows small stud earrings in school. 

Homework and Spellings 

Homework is an essential part of pupils' learning. It will be set every Friday and it will involve: spelling practice (Spelling Shed), grammar (CGP book) and maths (CGP book). It will also involve completing one or more of our Homework Projects. All children are expected to take part in a variety of homework tasks to enhance and support their work in class.

Reading 

Reading is an integral part of Year 6.This year we are having a big push to promote a love of reading across the school. It is very important that you ensure your children are reading on a daily basis, and, where possible, ask them questions about what they have read to support their comprehension. 

If you have any questions or concerns at any point throughout the year, please speak to either your child’s class teacher or another member of the Year 6 Team. 

 

Yours faithfully, 

Mrs Dackombe, Mr Carr and Miss Goodge
