Year 6

Week beginning:  14.10.19

This week, children will continue to ‘read as a reader’.

They will be looking at:

  • Exploring and extending vocabulary
  • Personal response to the text – what image does it create for me? How do I feel about that?
  • How to problem-solve for meaning
  • Digging deeper – what made me think that?

Children will be identifying the value of each digit in numbers given to three decimal places and multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000 giving answers up to three decimal places. They will also be looking at angles that meet at a point, angles that are on a straight line or vertically opposite, as well as finding the missing angles.         


Our objective is to understand that festivals are universal

Children will:

  • know that festivals are a celebration
  • understand that different cultures and religions have different types of festivals
  • find similarities and differences between different cultures and traditions
Parents can help their child by…

*ensuring children complete their homework. Homework is handed out on Friday and should be returned by Tuesday.

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

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

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