Times Tables Olympics continue in school and will be completed weekly. It is vital the children continue to learn their tables. Don't forget that there are games that they can play at home using Education City and Times Table Rock Stars. The children have individual log-ins.
In English, we will teach a narrative unit linked to stories from other cultures. This incorporates topic learning & understanding as well as the focus on writing skills for Y6, including complex sentences, use of speech to move a story on and better punctuation such as commas for clarity and using semi-colons. Writing will continue to link to topic work, including PSHE and Geography.
