2019 Summer 1 – Revision Focus

Welcome to the first half of the Summer Term 2019; here is an overview of key learning areas this half term. As we have the end of KS2 Sats to complete this term, our focus is very much on preparing the children fully and revisiting areas of the English, Maths and Science curriculum that need further development or to deepen understanding. Norwood Primary School and the Year 6 team would like to take this opportunity to assure you that there is no pressure associated with these assessments and all we would ever expect of the children is that they remain relaxed, display a growth mind set and simply endeavour to do their very best. Rest assured we are already proud of the progress and achievements of your children in every aspect of the curriculum both in and out of school greatly value their wider ongoing contributions to the Norwood School Community.

English:  Writing

Our literacy work will explore writing interviews, revisit play scripts and focus more closely on character description.

English:  Reading

Within our guided reading sessions using short stories, the children will explore ideas around author use of character’s speech and actions to convey meaning in fiction texts. In addition we will focus on how connective phrases link ideas between sentences and paragraphs in non-fiction. Please continue to support your child by ensuring they read for a minimum of 10 minutes a day, either to themselves or to somebody else, and ensuring they have their reading diaries signed daily.

Maths: Application

We will be revisiting previously taught aspects of the maths curriculum to further deepen understanding. This will be achieved though providing rich and engaging problem solving tasks and investigations. In addition to this, we will be improving arithmetic fluency and revisit work with fractions, decimals and percentages.

 

To further support your child, please see the links to various fun, game based maths in the Maths page of the Norwood School website.
