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!

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.

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...
