A very warm welcome to the Year 6 class page!

Year six is not only the last year for our children to enjoy their time here at Little Leigh, but also very important in preparing them for their journey onwards and upwards to high school. It is full of challenges and excitement right from the outset. The year 6 children hold many different roles of responsibility and leadership, as the oldest children in the school. Our aim is that they leave us as responsible citizens, confident individuals and successful learners. I am sure they are going to do a wonderful job in being excellent role models for our younger children.

In addition to myself, we will be joined every day by Miss Sudworth and Mr Richards for our maths lessons! Mrs Tomlinson will be taking the class on a Thursday. 

Our PE sessions are on a Monday and Thursday afternoon so don't forget to come to school in your pe kit on that day! 

If you have any questions or queries please don't hesitate to contact me. 

Here's to a wonderful half term!

Miss Norris

 

Summer Term 1

As Writers...

King Kong.jpg


This half term we will be using the text King Kong by Anthony Browne to inspire our writing! The enthralling story of King Kong involves battles with dinosaurs, daring rescues and incredible escapes - endless thrills lead up to one of the most famous climaxes of all time! This text will compliment our Geography learning on North America nicely as well as leading to range of writing outcomes including poetry, narrative writing and a balanced argument.

As Readers...

The texts that we will be looking at in our reading sessions this half term will support our Geography learning. Through our reading sessions we will develop our word reading and comprehension skills through high quality fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts. All of these texts are rich with knowledge and vocabulary and will broaden our understanding of coasts.

As Geographers...

In our Geography lessons we will be learning about North America. Our key enquiry question will be: ‘How has New York changed over time?' In our lessons we will explore the different environments present within the USA: the key physical features, where populations are distributed, and some of the interactions between the human and physical environments focusing on food, farming and water. We will then focus on one city in particular, New York, to examine how a settlement can develop over time.

As Artists...

In our Art lessons this half term we will be practising our perspective drawing in order to create skyscraper skyline drawings. 

 

As Scientists...

Our focus for this half term is 'Electricity'. Our key aims for this unit are to associate the brightness of a lamp or the volume of a buzzer with the number and voltage of cells used in the circuit; to compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches and to use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram. We will also take the opportunity to work scientifically by carrying out a range of scientific investigations. 

As Mathematicians....

Whole Class Reading


Each week the children take part both whole class and guided reading sessions with the class teacher. We will work together in this session to read extracts of text and develop our deduction and inference skills through specific and targeted questions. As well as this, it is important that you are regularly reading with your child and we advise that you read 10-15 minutes per day with them. Whilst listening to your child, try to ask them questions about events that have happened so far, characters thoughts and motives and to make accurate predictions based on the text. 

P.E. Lessons


This half term, our P.E. sessions will take place on Monday and Thursday afternoons. On Monday afternoons, we will be going swimming and on Thursday afternoons we will developing our netball skills. Please ensure that your child comes to school with their swimming kit on a Monday and they can come in to school in their PE kit on a Thursday. 

During the winter months, it is advisable that children bring with them warmer clothes for their outdoor sessions.

Please ensure that all P.E. clothing is labelled clearly to avoid any confusion!

Homework


Homework will be set every Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. Each week the children will have a piece of Maths and English homework to complete to prepare the children for the SATs tests in May (and to prepare them for high school!). Please ensure homework is completed on time and returned to school in time for marking.

If you have any issues regarding the homework set then please don't hesitate to contact me and I will do my best to resolve the issue.
