Year 6

Week beginning:  18.03.19


This week, children will be writing their very own explanation text. They will have opportunity to research, plan and write up as well as edit their work before it is assessed.


Children will be given a few options and will be asked to choose one to research.

  • How a rainbow is formed
  • Life cycle of a butterfly 
  • How do bees make honey
  • How earthquakes happen



In maths we will be focusing on the following objectives:


  • Use simple formulae.
  • Solve problems involving the calculation and conversion of units of measure, using decimal notation up to three decimal places where appropriate.
  • Compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons.
This week in IPC ..

Children will be learning about stars. We will provide access to books and the internet for the children to conduct their research.


  • How many stars do they think there might be in space?
  • Are all stars the same?
  • What are stars made from?
  • How old is our Sun?
  • Do all stars have planets orbiting them?
  • How is a star made?
  • Can a star die?

This will then be followed by a  feedback session, where children discuss what they have found out. Did any of the facts surprise them?


Parents can help their child by…

*listening to their children read at least 3 times a week and signing it in their pupil planners.

*recapping the passport tasks for their child's next passport.

*encouraging them to continue to develop speed and accuracy in times tables and division facts for up to 12x12.
