Moving Forward, Aiming High!


Autumn Term 2 

This half term the children will be writing a poem, a letter and a recount. We will be looking at a range of grammar expectations to include throughout our pieces of writing such as subjunctive form, compound and complex sentences and tense. 

New writing genre! Over the next couple of weeks the children in Year 6 will be writing a narrative. This narrative will be about defeating a monster, using The War of the Worlds, H.G.Wells as a stimulus.

Take a look at our tales. They definitely hooked me in with their use of figurative language and detailed description of the atmosphere!

We started the genre off with creating our own creatures.

Children’s ideas to support their writing are starting to take shape 🤩

Week beginning 21.09.2020 

This week my Writing group have impressed me with their recount writing about Pearl Harbour. Check in next week as I will be sharing some with you. They have tried really hard to include relative clauses, fronted adverbials and amazing vocabulary. Well done to all of you.

In Reading we have been looking at an extract from The Silver Sword, Ian Serrallier. The children explored words in meaning and developed their own gists. They were able to make predictions using their inference skills. If your child would like to read this book, it can be found in our school library (ZPD 5.5.).

In Maths we have been working on our four operations. They have been resilient with written formal methods and did not give up! Well done to all of you. 

Week beginning 14th September 2020 

WOW! All of my groups have made an excellent start to their learning this half term. In Reading we have been looking at non-fiction texts about Pearl Harbour. These texts have supported the children with knowledge about the events that took place leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbour. In our Writing lessons we have started to look at fronted adverbial sand relative clauses within a sentence. We will be using this work to support our recount piece of writing. In Maths we have been securing our formal written method for addition and subtraction, including numbers with decimal points. All of the children have had an excellent positive, I can do attitude! HULK SMASH! ☺️
