Year 6 2017 - 2018

Mr Manning

Mrs Edwards

Welcome back to Elton Year 6.

My name is Mr Manning and I'm the Year 6 teacher for this year. I will be supported throughout the year by Mrs Edwards - one of our super HLTAs.

It’s now the summer term and we are into our last thirteen weeks of primary education! This term we will begin visiting our new schools and meeting our new teachers – both at Elton and at the high schools. But before we do that, we will have the SATs tests to focus on. These national tests in reading, SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) and maths take place in the week beginning May 14th.

In preparation for the tests, we will start the term looking at some reading comprehension skills: scanning, skimming, justifying answers with textual evidence and discussing author intentions. We will also revise all our grammar terminology from relative clauses to the subjunctive mood!

In numeracy we will focus on angles and data handling before spending a fortnight looking at solving problems in SATs style questioning. Remember to log onto White Rose Diagnostic Quizzes and Times Tables Rock Stars at home to keep those skills sharp.

After the SATs are completed, we will undertake an exciting project across the school – indeed across several schools based on the work of Chester Zoo. We will examine the effect that palm oil has on the environment and what we can do about it. We will also start preparing our end of year leavers’ performances.

PE lessons will still be taught on a Wednesday and on a Friday by Miss Preugschat - so remember those PE kits.

Mrs Edwards will teach the class for an hour on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon - when she will cover subjects such as Music, RE, P4C and French. She will also teach the humanities topic on a Thursday afternoon.

Monday will remain our key slot for the ICT suite; although the focus will be maths games for the first couple of weeks before we then look at creating spread sheets.
