Welcome to Year 6
Teachers: Mrs Perkin, Miss Butterworth and Mrs Barker
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Turner and Mrs Dowsett
Our topic this term is 'Where Are We Going?'
Welcome back to your final term at Leigham Primary School.
This term we will be completing final preparations for our SATs. Remember that they are taking place during the week beginning
Monday 14th May.
Key concepts being taught this term:
In literacy we will be continuing to work on basic skills, particularly grammar, punctuation and spelling. We will then move on, after SATs, to looking at biographies and writing leaflets to promote our city of Plymouth.
In numeracy we will be applying our numeracy skills to a variety of problems. Later in the term, we will be putting these skills into good use when we complete an enterprise project.
We will be planning and carrying out a series of investigations and challenges in science this term to build upon our team skills. We will also be thinking about how we can keep healthy and how our bodies change as we get older.
We will be focussing on athletics, fitness and cricket in P.E and games.
In design technology we will be creating and making products to sell as part of an enterprise project.
Towards the end of the term, we will begin to work on our leavers production and complete visits to our new secondary schools in preparation for September.
It is going to be a busy yet rewarding term and we know that the children will work hard in order to feel proud of what they have achieved, when they leave Leigham Primary School.
Our P.E. days are on Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that full kits are in on these days.
Homework is given out on Friday and due in on Thursday the following week.
