Talk For Writing

As a Talk 4 Writing school, we place emphasis on children learning to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. Throughout the year, children will learn approximately 9-12 model texts. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions.

 

The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 6. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them.  Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

 

Date Text Type Text Title  
Autumn texts      
  Non-chronological report The Yellow-spotted Lizard  
  Defeating the Monster story Diving for the Brick                              
  A warning story (Greek myth) Wings

The government have published a list of words that they expect years 5 & 6 to be able to spell.  You will find it helpful for revising in the lead-up to SATs.

 

Maths No Problem

As a school, we place emphasis on teaching Maths using a Maths Mastery approach. We place emphasis on children learning to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We use Maths No Problem Maths Textbooks and Workbooks in school.

The table below highlights the textbook and chapters that we are learning in Year 6. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. If you wish to purchase a copy of the Maths No Problem Textbook A and B and Workbook A and B for your year group for use at home and also find out more about how Maths is taught in school, these are available to order at http://www.mathsnoproblem.co.uk/mathematics/primary-key-stage1-and-key-stage-2/maths-no-problem.html

 

We ask all parents to support children with learning their times tables at home; this is key to children being successful as Mathematicians.

25.09 to the 29.09.17 Kingswood Residential

 

Y6 had an amazing time at Kingswood this year, building their confidence and self-belief as they tackled various challenges and new experiences.  Below is just a small taste of our adventurous and inspiring week. For more details, come to the Y6 Worship on the 13th October.

19.09 Brilliant Beginning to our Energy Project

 

We had a really interesting and informative visit to the Solent Solar Farm, where we saw nearly 10,000 solar panels in action.  Did you know that it cost £2.6million to build...but that it will repay itself in 8 years?  It produces enough energy for 650 homes (or the equivalent of a quarter of a million light bulbs).  Is this the answer to our energy crisis?  Y6 are certainly forming their own opinions on the matter...

 

 

Year 6 enjoy the benefits of skipping and it is fun too!

Beneath The Same Starry Sky

BENEATH THE SAME STARRY SKY
THOUGH YOU MAY BE FAR, I CAN FEEL YOU HERE,
I’M WISHING ON A SHOOTING STAR
WISHING YOU WERE NEAR
BUT UP ABOVE THE STARS STILL SHINE
AND SAY THIS ISN’T GOODBYE
FOR IN MY HEART I KNOW WE SAIL
BENEATH THE SAME STARRY SKY

THOUGH WE FEEL ALONE SAILING THROUGH THE NIGHT
A MILLION EYES WATCH OVER US
SHINING OUT THEIR LIGHT
AND EVEN THOUGH I MISS YOU SO,
I KNOW THERE’S NO NEED TO CRY
FOR IN MY HEART I KNOW WE SAIL
BENEATH THE SAME STARRY SKY
BENEATH THE SAME STARRY SKY.
