In Maths we are really enjoying our new scheme called Power Maths, which is linked to the White Rose Curriculum that we adopted a couple of years ago. We are excited to be using brand new materials and resources. Sometimes in Y6 the work needs teaching in a slightly different way as the children have not followed Power Maths previously.
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 continue to teach writing with a range of genres which will include narrative writing and explanations.
This incorporates grammar and spelling as well as topic learning & understanding and the focus on writing skills for Y5 and Y6.
Writing will continue to link to topic work, including Geography, PSCHE and Science.
Grammar is taught as an integral part of English sessions. Spellings are practised during the week and are tested on Friday.
