Year 6

Week beginning:  05.11.18

For 3 weeks, year 6 will be focusing on persuasive writing.

Week 1 – children have had an opportunity to look at persuasive advertisement, learn about the features of persuasive adverts and have been able to design one of their own.

This week, children will be looking at persuasive letters. They will be learning about features of letter writing, and about persuasive vocabulary.


Children will be focusing on the following objectives:

  • Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit whole number using the formal written method of long division, and interpret remainders as whole number remainders, fractions, or by rounding, as appropriate for the context.
  • Divide numbers up to 4 digits by a two-digit number using the formal written method of short division where appropriate, interpreting remainders according to the context
  • Recognise that shapes with the same areas can have different perimeters and vice versa. 
This week in IPC ..

We are now towards the end of our IPC unit ‘here and now, there and then’. Children have worked incredibly hard. We are currently planning an exit point where you all will be invited to see the work children have produced. More information about this will be sent out soon.

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.
