Welcome back to EPPS to all our pupils! We hope you had a fantastic break!
Year 6 Power of Reading this term is ‘Pig Heart Boy’ by Malorie Blackman.
In Literacy, the pupils will use the Power of Reading book to get inspired for the fiction and non-fiction writing focuses that lie ahead. Pupils will learn to write a number of different text types, including non-chronological reports, balanced arguments, fictional narrative and persuasive letters, all inspired by the context of the story we will read as a class. To deepen their knowledge and understanding of these topics, pupils will carry out research in these areas, using laptops as well as printed resources.
In Numeracy, pupils will continue their focus on fractions, subsequently leading into ratios and then data handling. Pupils will continue to practise solving multi-step word problems including money and different types of measurement. As always, mental calculation strategies and reasoning activities will be a great focus for our pupils. Thank you to parents and carers for all you have done to support our pupils in their learning – your support at home has really aided pupils’ progress throughout the year so far.
In Science, after the pupils have re-acquainted themselves with the function and purpose of the Body’s organs, they will start to investigate the importance of diet and nutrition in their lives. The measures the we need to take to look after our bodies will be investigated this half term.
We cannot wait to see the wonderful work pupils will produce this term! Be sure to keep an eye on the school’s website for updates and Wow Work. It’s going to be a wonderful year. If you have any questions about anything Year 6 related, please feel free to speak to a member of the Year 6 team.
