Year 6

Week beginning: 28.06.21



Children this week will be looking at diary entries and writing from Tim the ostlers point of view. He is a character from The Highway Man. This poem was written in 18th Century Rural England. Back then Highwaymen were robbers on horseback and they usually worked alone or in small groups. They attacked travellers in carriages or on horseback. They targeted stagecoaches, carriages, farmers returning from market and the mail coaches.


Objectives we will be covering this week:

  • 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



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. In addition to this, we will also be looking into how and why we have night and day. 

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.
