Autumn 2 2018- Black History Topic

We are really looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday morning ready for our Autumn term. Only 50 sleeps until Christmas and we have so much exciting learning to complete before then!

This half term our topic will be Black History and we will be looking at inspirational people including Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela. In literacy we will be writing a biography based on an influential person followed by a biography on a person of your choice.  You could start to research who you would like to write about and gather some information and facts.  We will also be writing a non-chronological report on Black History so any research you do will be really helpful and useful to you! We would love to see any home made projects that you do and would love to show off and display all your amazing creations!

In maths this half term we will be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages and will be continuing to build our confidence in mental maths.

Just a quick reminder….

In Year 6 your child is expected to complete their spellings, multiplication tables and daily reading every week. Your child will have a spelling test, a multiplication tables test and their reading record checked weekly.  Every child must have at least 3 reads that are signed by an adult every week in their reading record.

Your child also has access to a variety of educational programmes online.  Your child has a personal login for RM Maths, SPAG.com, FirstNews, ihub and mymaths all of which will help your child progress in the core subjects.  If you child has forgot or misplaced their login details, please ask in school for another copy. You should encourage your child to access all these different sites at least 3 times a week.

Superstars of the Week

This week many Year 6 children have really impressed the staff in maths, literacy and science.

A huge congratulations to Ben and Samuel  for their hard work in maths this week. You really impressed us with your place value knowledge especially when you were working with negative and positive integers. Well done, keep up the hard work!

We would like to award Shanice and Riley H with the star writer award this week. We have started our new topic (WWII) and were  really impressed with their vocabulary choice and ability to empathise with a character from the 1930’s. Your diaries were emotional and in role! Well done! We were also equally impressed with your mystery writing, you ensured you included all the features of a mystery writing and made your writing tense and exciting.

Finally, our superstar scientists this week are Daniel, Josh, Harvey D and Steven. Your science knowledge and ability to link facts and enquire about new learning was infectious today!  The Year 6 team were really impressed with the questions that you asked and the links that you made. Excellent effort!

Circuits and Electricity

Our new science topic this half term is Circuits and Electricity. The children have enjoyed exploring the circuits equipment and building their own circuits this week during their introduction to the topic.

You could continue your science learning at home.  You could research and find the answer to your questions and could add this to your new learning in your topic book. You could write some new facts for our working wall or even take the project in any way you choose and impress us with you own invention!

We would be really interested to see your learning!

World War II

This week, Year 6 started their new topic for this half term: World War II (WWI).  We all enjoyed our first immersion lesson on Monday where we had the chance to explore a variety of  sources. Some of the items that we got to explore were primary sources from WWII! We recorded all our new learning on a mind map that we will continue to add to throughout our topic.

We are really looking forward to our first Year 6 trip on Friday to visit Eden Camp. We can’t wait to visit a real prisoner of war camp and explore the different huts.

Our WWII learning will continue up until October half term and we would be really interested and impressed to see any home learning that you can do related to WWII. We have a display ready to include all your amazing creations!

Celebration Assembly

On Friday 29th June 2018, Year 6 held their final celebration assembly to celebrate their  time at Prince Edward.  All the children sung the songs beautifully and thanked many teachers and helpers for all their hard work over the years.  It was really special to share the celebration with the whole school and all our Y6 parents.

We would like to wish all our children who are moving on to transition the best of luck in the world!

We look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 10th July 2018 for prom and Friday 20th July for our final day together!
