Project: The Watertower
We will emerge ourselves in the story of “The Watertower”. This thrilling suspense story will show us how authors create suspense and build tension. We will use music to create our own soundscapes and explore the relationship between the characters. We will consider if Spike was a good friend to Bubba and learn how to overcome peer pressure in our own lives. After exploring the book, we will have the opportunity to put our new skills into action and write our very own suspense story which we will share with . Our best pieces of work will be displayed in the school library.
This half-term’s home learning project will be based around the above mentioned projects. Also, in Year 6 we will be setting additional weekly learning opportunities for students to access. This will help support students with any additional gaps in their learning and start to prepare them for secondary school.
Spellings: We will send home weekly spellings every Friday, which will be tested in school at the end of the week. Please support your child at home to learn their spellings.
Reading: Please continue to read with your child as often as possible at home and record in their home school diary. When reading, question your child to check their understanding. We encourage you to take part in our school wide ‘12 Books Reading Challenge’. By taking part, your child will have the opportunity to read a range of genres and develop their reading for pleasure.
Times tables: Please support your child with learning their times tables at home. In Year 6, we are continuing to revise all times tables. Start by focussing on recalling them in order and looking at number patterns. Then, work towards being able to recall them out of order as well as the link to division facts.
Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation: This will be set via Purple mash on a Wednesday and will be due on the following Tuesday.
Maths: This will be set via MyMaths on a Wednesday and will be due in on the following Wednesday.
