Useful Planning For Your Adults…
Below you will find some planning that will support you with learning at home.
We are currently working on fractions. This includes adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing with them as well as creating equivalent fractions using our knowledge of factors and multiples.
Here is a handy website to look at the whole year 6 math curriculum and examples of the work they will be producing.
The next aspect we will be working on is decimals.
The Write Stuff
We are currently using ‘The Write Stuff’ approach in our writing lessons. This involves 3 stages of writing:
- The Initiate phase: where we gather language.
- Model stage: where the teacher models a good sentence and what it will include.
- Enable stage: Where children have a go at writing their own sentence.
Every sentence has a focus on one of the ideas below. It will either be one from each tier of the rainbow.
At home, you could look at this writing rainbow with your children and encourage them to be familiar with it and write using it.
Although science is not taught everyday, it is a core subject and it is important that everyone studies science for a minimum of two hours every week. Please follow the links below to access the medium term plan for the appropriate topic. These are the overviews of what will be taught in class, however please do not feel you need to cover every aspect of these. This is just to give you an idea of the intended coverage.
The Science subpage below will have the learning that should be completed at home for the correct term.
