Hello Parents and Guardians of Year 6,
This term will see a predominant focus on SATS preparation in English and Maths. In Writing, we are looking at newspapers, recounts, haikus and narratives. In Maths, we will be focusing on arithmetic, algebra, converting units of measurement, coordinates, translation and multi-step word problems.
Pupils and parents are reminded that there is a wealth of revision material and help videos on the SATScompanion website: https://mysats.satscompanion.com/auth/login You will find revision for every area of Maths, Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation. You can also see the results and progress your child has made on the subjects throughout the year.
In our foundation subjects, pupils will begin coding on our new school computing curriculum; studying animals and humans in Science; learning about striking and field games in PE; continuing the study of patterns in Art and continuing their French, Music, Geography and SMSC curriculums.
We will continue updating the pupil's websites with examples of work from each subject. These can be found by your child logging in to Hamilton Web Learner: http://www.hamiltonweblearner.com/
Photo Gallery: Before Christmas the class completed a Science topic on Electricity. As part of the task, children created their own circuits using batteries, wires, bulbs and motors. They then designed a Christmas Light Display to showcase their skills.
The first Gallery shows some examples of their work.
The second photo gallery shows the clay sculptures of the Human Heart that they recently completed in Science.
