Hawk Owls Y6

Welcome to Hawk Owls!

 

Hooray!

You have successfully made it to the last year of your Primary School education.

 

This is the year where you have the opportunity to show off all that you have learnt in the time you have been at Great Milton. The journey we will take together, will be challenging and emotional at times, but most of all it will be your greatest achievement and of course lots of fun! 

 

I  am looking forward to seeing how much you have grown in person and academically since we were last together in year 2

 

I am sure you are all looking forward to different aspects of the year but I'm guessing your number one is most probably sitting on the benches!. 

 

This week:

English - We will be combining our Geography and English lessons this week. We will be researching the Chinese Education System, debating as a class as to whether we should/should not change our system to match theirs. We will then write persuasive letters to Mrs Frost.

Maths: Our focus will be on converting decimal numbers to fractions and applying mental addition strategies to answer 5 digit number problems.

PE: Tuesday and Thursday - outside with Mr Sykes. Please make sure you are wearing appropriate school PE kit. As with last year you may wear this to school.

 

 

 

PE

Hawk Owl’s PE lessons will be on Tuesday and Thursday. Please come into school in your PE kit ready for these lessons. This term, you will be focusing on Tag Rugby, which will be outdoors. Please make sure you have a change of indoor shoes for the rest of the day whilst you are in the classroom and school building and that all of your kit is labelled with your name. 

 

Wednesdays

On a Wednesday morning, Miss Woods will be teaching you music and French

 

Reading

 Later this term, we will be reading ‘Brightstorm' by Vashti Hardy. Our focus is to simply enjoy a book together as a whole class, as this has been such a lovely activity you have all shared during your time as an Eagle Owl. We have a few copies in school already and some of the Hawk Owls might simply like to listen as I read along, so please do not worry if you do not have one of your own. I thought it might be worth mentioning in case an older sibling has it on their bookshelf or you are planning on visiting your local library! 

In Hawk Owls, we have an extensive range of exciting books which you are more than welcome to borrow and enjoy at home or in the classroom. We have a signing out book which you can fill in with the book you would like to borrow to help us keep track of our lovely books. Once you have returned this book, you can then sign out a new one. You are also welcome to bring in your own books from home. I would suggest writing your name in the front so we can easily return it to you if it wanders around the classroom. 

Will you take on the year 6 reading challenge? Or maybe you'll choose to read one of the top 100 books you should read before you leave Primary School. 

 

Spelling

We will work on our spellings in class during our early morning work and as a weekly informal spelling test. For those of us who find spellings a little difficult, a mixture of year 6 and individual spelling words will be given. 

 

Homework

This year I am changing the format of the year 6 homework. Every Thursday you will receive a sheet with short tasks or questions relating to our lessons in SPaG, maths and English. Each task can be completed on its own therefore, hopefully, making it easier to complete for those of you who are busy with out of school activities. Please attempt each task but always ask me for help if you are unsure. Homework will be handed out on a Thursday and should be placed in the homework tray by the following Tuesday.

For those of you who like to complete more homework, you will find our topic homework grid below. Some of these activities may need a week or two to complete. Any topic homework you do bring in will be celebrated and added to our display!

 

Outside Area

Sometimes at playtime or lunchtime you may just want a quiet place to sit so, under the cover way outside our classroom, I have started to set up a specific area just for year 6. It is still in the very early stages but I do have plans! I think this would be a great place to display our graffiti artwork too!  

 

Mrs Grayshon will be in class with us every morning from Monday - Thursday. 

 

I’m really looking forward to supporting you throughout this year, so please come and talk to me if you have any worries however great or small.

 

If your grown-ups have any queries or concerns this term, they are more than welcome to contact me via the school office at office@gmilton.org or come and speak to me at the end of the day.

 

Here's to a great year

Mrs Green
