Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 from Miss Kopsch!

Please see below all of the wonderful things we’ve been up to!

Our first half term was spent studying the amazing humour of Anthony Horowitz. After analysing different aspects of narrative writing we wrote our own extended narratives, imitating the humorous style of writing.

Our Harvest Service was the perfect opportunity to use our writing skills and produce some story writing.

After working hard on place value and calculations, we have enjoyed a task all about planning a holiday on a budget.

With Mrs Richardson we enjoyed learning about genetics and finding out all about our fingerprints through our theme ‘ID’. Copies of our own fingerprints are on our class display in the hall.

Everyone in year 6 has worked on their coaching skills and delivered games to the children in year 4! Great fun!

We spent some time learning about British laws and developing our understanding of how these keep us all safe. A great discussion on British Values.

To start off the new half term we jumped straight into our new theme ‘Revolution’ and learned about the life of Charles Dickens’. This was a great way to start biography writing.

Everyone enjoyed a great day at The Black Country Museum. Thanks to Miss Knight and Mrs Stubbings for taking everyone.

Well done to all of the class for an amazing performance of Oliver Twist on Thursday. And thanks to Mrs Stubbings for stepping in to play a part! The speaking and listening skills shone through! Now onto writing our own play scripts…

Here are some extra activities the children could do at home:

Standard English – three levels of difficulty

Semi colons and dashes

Phrases and clauses

Christmas Maths

Maths mastery decimal places

Negative number challenge cards
