Yr 6 What We Are Learning

Beech Grove Primary School

Year 6

Summer Term 2018

Head Teacher’s Message
Welcome back to our new summer term. Our teachers have lots of interesting activities planned for this term and hope that you will enjoy hearing what children have been working on at consultation meetings, and will support them with their homework and reading outside of school.
Many thanks to everyone who supported our fundraising efforts. We are very close to our target of £4,000 and you should soon be hearing about the free summer trips your children will be enjoying!

Our work for this term:

English
We are really focused on developing our reading and comprehension skills ready for our SATs in May. Writing is still a big focus in Y6, and we have lots of exciting writing opportunities coming our way!

Maths
This term we will be continuing to work on our arithmetic skills ready for our upcoming SATs tests in May.  We will also be looking at angles and volume of shapes.

Topic
Our Topics this half term are ID and Gallery Rebels. Our focus in ID is what makes us, us! Thinking about our inherited characteristics, fingerprints and DNA, everything that makes us unique.  During Gallery Rebels our focus will be Art and Design where we will be expressing ourselves without words!

Keeping Safe and Healthy (This section will tell you what we are teaching children about lifestyle choices)
All girls and boys will be having a Puberty talk this term where we will carefully address any questions the children may have about hygiene and changes to their body.
