St Veronica'sRC Primary School

Not just a school; a family.

Year 6

HELLO AND WELCOME TO OUR CLASS PAGE FROM MR BARNACLE

Spring Update

 

Usually at this time of year, I would be informing you about the forthcoming booster classes in preparation for the KS2 SATs, but due to Covid restrictions, these cannot go ahead as normal. However, there will be a greater emphasis on reading and writing not only in Literacy but throughout the whole of the curriculum. Extra Maths lessons will also be provided, to fill any gaps which may have resulted during the previous Lockdown. Our aim, as always, will be to ensure the children are fully prepared, not only for SATs but for their chosen secondary schools in September.

 

Some key themes covered this half term

  • In Literacy we will be using Macbeth as our class text and the children will be writing narrative
  • In Maths, we will be looking place Value including negative numbers, 4 operations, statistics, percentages and algebra
  • In Religion, we start by looking at books of the New and Old Testaments and what it means to be united
  • In History, we will be studying the Mayans
  • In Geography, the focus is the United Kingdom and the children will be studying how it is made up.
  • In PE, we will be looking at various games honing in on skills associated
  • In Science we will be studying light.

We will also be studying, French PSHE and Music.

 

In the event of further school closures, we will endeavour as always to provide online teaching supporting all our children in the best way possible.
