Hello my name is Mrs Courtney-Smith (although some of you will still remember me as Miss Holt!) and I am really looking forward to teaching you this year.
In May, Year 6 will sit the statutory KS2 SAT papers.
PE is on Monday and Friday. Please ensure that your child brings the correct PE kit, which can be viewed here and does not have any earrings in.
Spellings will be given out on Mondays and will be tested the following Monday.
Reading is incredibly important, and is a gateway to the rest of the curriculum. Please try to read for at least 10 minutes daily with your child. I would like to see your child’s reading record at least once per week, and books can be changed when required. If your child has chosen a book that they do not like please change it as soon as possible.
Come back to our class page regularly for updates.
Currently, we are reading, ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ by Michael Morpurgo. We will be using this exciting text to write for a range of audiences and purposes but are currently looking at narrative.
We are currently looking at revisiting place value before moving on to the four operations.
Our unit this term is ‘Light’, and we will be studying how we see and what light can do.
This half term, Year 6 are thinking about Life as a journey and pilgrimages. They will be discussing their own faith and beliefs, as well as understanding where their beliefs have come from, and who/what they are influenced by.
This term we have a history topic of ‘Early Islamic Civilisation’. Children will be learning all about the Silk Road and the influence Baghdad has left on the world.
