Falcon Class - Year 6 2023 - 2024

Mrs Lingard

Mr Davies

Welcome back to the Summer Term!

We are about to embark on the final term at Newtown Primary School, and it's going to be a busy one!

We have 5 weeks until SATS and 5 more SATS clubs on a Friday after school.

Maths is a big focus for the next few weeks, and we will be having our arithmetic lesson on Mondays. The 36 in 30 is marked as a class and stuck in their home-school journals. This gives a really great reflection of what the children need to focus on. We will be practising past SATS questions alongside covering the curriculum in preparation for the reasoning papers.

In our English lessons we will start the term with Wild is the Wind by Grahame Baker-Smith. This beautiful book is a story about the extraordinary path of the wind in its many guises across the world, as witnessed by a migrating swift. We will be writing a Journey Narrative as well as delving into the world of magazine writing.

Our weekly spelling, punctuation, and grammar tests will take place on a Friday. Homework is going home each week in the form of a SATS club pack, and we are looking at these together in SATS club.

Reading underpins all education and as such pupils will be encouraged to read at home for at least five minutes every day. A record of this reading should then be made by a parent/carer in the Home School Journal. Please can you ensure your child’s journal is bought to school each day.

In our Wider Curriculum subjects, we will begin the term with a geography focus, looking at Energy and Sustainability. After half term our history will be about conflicts in the 20th Century. We will be hopefully going on a trip linked to this learning. In RE we will be finding out about how faith can be expressed through the arts. In science we will start the term finding out about electricity, with some chemistry after half term when we explore Marvellous Mixtures. Our Art and Design centres around graffiti art, with the theme of Make My Voice Heard. DT, after half term, will be all about food and a Come Dine With Me experience. In computing we will be learning how to design and print in 3D. In French we will be exploring the French speaking world. Our PSHE focus this term is Safety and the Changing Body.

We are very lucky to have Mr Kitcher teaching us music and we will be learning about, and learning to play, the blues.

Please have a look at our Curriculum Page on the website for much more detail on what will be taught and when.


Key Information for Summer Term

Children need to bring a water bottle every day. Please can snacks be healthy – on Fridays you can bring in a treat.
