Year 6

Week beginning:  04.05.21



Children this week will be looking at persuasive advertisements. We will focusing on specific features used in persuasive such as:

  • Present tense
  • Informal language
  • Powerful verbs including imperatives
  • Adjectives for emphasis
  • Rhetorical questions to appeal to the reader
  • Alliteration for rhythm and impact
  • Parenthesis for additional information
  • Use of punctuation to guide the reader e.g. bullet points, ellipsis



Objectives we will be covering this week:


  • Calculate and interpret the mean as an average
  • Interpret and construct pie charts and line graphs and use these to solve problems.

Our topic this term is Space explorers.’ We will be explaining to the children that, by studying rocks on Earth, geologists can learn a lot about the Moon and other planets in our Solar System. From their observations, geologists can classify rocks and work out their origins (how they were formed). This knowledge can then be used to work out the origins of rocks that occur in space.Children will be researching each type of rock and collect as much relevant information as possible.

Parents can help their child by…

*ensuring children complete their homework. Homework is handed out on Friday and should be submitted by Sunday on google classroom. This is so that it is ready to mark on Monday. 

*listening to your child read at least 3 times a week and signing their pupil planners.

*help your child to practice their Maths passport objectives.

*encouraging them to continue to develop speed and accuracy in times tables and division facts for up to 12x12 by using TT Rock Stars.
