Spring Term

Curriculum Map - Spring 2019

We are back into school and well and truly underway with 2019! As ever, the Year 6 pupils at Sebright are continuing to achieve their best at school and doing themselves proud with their final year of Primary school.

This term we are looking forward to some excellent narrative writing, using traditional tales (Jack and the Beanstalk as it has never been told before), letter writing and BBC One’s Merlin TV show as creative starting points for our own stories, diaries, graphic novels and descriptions.

In Maths we have seen all the children reap great rewards from their hard work and perseverance in arithmetic skills after the Autumn Term: now let’s apply the same attitude to our problem solving and reasoning numeracy skills!

We will also been investigating and debating the many theories of Evolution and Inheritance throughout history in our Science lessons and will be exploring the Kingdom of Benin before moving on to WW2 after half term.

One of the motto’s we have in Year 6 is ‘there are no shortcuts, you only get out what you put in!

So bearing that in mind, alongside the homework books you use at home, here are some challenges for you to work on at home:

  • Become a times tables rockstar and master all your Fractions, Decimals and Percentages facts.
  • Maintain a 100% attendance and punctuality record.
  • Read a 400-page book or Read 10 pages a day (You can always borrow a book from the class’ book corner).

On top of all this, why not also make use of the website links below to make even greater strides towards progress and achievement?!

Reading

To support your child with their reading is really important and it will help them to make progress across the curriculum. When we read books we extend our vocabulary, we gain greater understanding of the world we live in and it encourages us to use new themes and ideas in our writing.

Here are two great reading lists for Year 6 children, take a look and see if you find these books in your local library, or at school:

We also held a reading workshop for parents recently. Here are the presentation slides:
