Our Literacy over the course of this topic will consist of the following books:

We are covering the following skills in Numeracy this term:

Solve increasingly complex problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in both familiar and unfamiliar contexts.

Begin to explore multipliers (fractional and decimals) to connect two quantities

Solve problems involving the calculation of any percentage involving a range of contexts both familiar and unfamiliar.

Solve problems involving similar shapes where the scale factor is known or can be

found, including fractions

Solve increasingly complex problems involving unequal sharing and grouping using knowledge of fractions and multiples.

Draw complex 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles

Recognise, describe and build increasingly complex 3-D shapes, including making nets accurately

Justify reasons for classifying shapes based on their properties using accurate mathematical vocabulary without prompts

Use the language of circles including radius, diameter and circumference with confidence and accuracy. Begin to explore the formula for the circumference of circles.

It is ESSENTIAL that your child fluently knows their times tables both division facts and multiplication and have quick recall on these. This is ongoing homework for them and is vital to their progress this year.

 AWARDS
This year we have incorporated the Learning Passport within a document that recognises children’s achievements in school and the wider community. What is expected in order for children to achieve their ’Ambassador Award’ comes under 4 headings: 
  • Citizenship
  • Relationships
  • Learning
  • Behaviour and conduct
Each section has elements that underpin the values that as a school we hold dear. We believe that learning is something that continues every minute of the waking day and it is important to recognise children’s achievements not only in lessons but beyond. Adults in school will discuss each section with the children and how they can meet the criteria identified; we are hoping that the children will be able to take some ownership of the passport themselves! Have a look at the Ambassador passport the Year 6 children will be working through this year to help them achieve their Ambassador Awards!
