Welcome to Class 6

The final year at Abbott is now fully under way, as we enter the Spring term. As always it is a busy one, with lots of events and activities, but also a lot of learning ahead. 

This half term we welcome Mrs Doran back to school and in to Class 6, as she will now be teaching Science, Computing and Art. Please see the curriculum overview attached for more information about what she will be covering. 

In English, we are continuing to read 'Trash' by Andy Mulligan- we will be developing our understanding of themes addressed in the novel through exploring different genres of writing. We will also be continuing to work on and develop consistency in our handwriting. Through Guided Reading, we will be exploring a range of texts and genres; building up reading stamina, developing vocabulary, and comprehension and inference skills. 

We are moving on in Maths after spending the first term consolidating our undestanding of number and place value, including fractions and decimals. We are now going to be looking at measurements, calculations, ration and proportion and continually revisiting mental strategies. 

In Geography, we are extending our skills by exploring National Parks in the UK, focusing on what makes them special and why there are known as 'the breathing spaces' of the country. 

We have also started some Boosters sessions for Reading and Maths this half term, for identified children, which will continue over the Spring Term as we move closer to SATs. 

As always, if you have any questions regarding the learning in Class 6 please do not hestitate to speak with a member of the Year 6 team.
