Autumn Term 2020 Topic
After a refreshing break over the summer it’s so nice to welcome you all to the start of a new school year at St George and St Martin Catholic Academy and to Year 6! After a long time apart we are so looking forward to teaching your children in their last year at our school! We have a busy year ahead and the children have made an enthusiastic start especially in their new role as leaders of our school.
It is already clear that the children are eager to sink their teeth into all of their new learning. We will be teaching a variety of different subjects in Year 6 and the children will enjoy a full and rich curriculum that covers all the subjects in the National Curriculum. We have begun reading our first novel, ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’, by our class author Michael Morpurgo. The children will love reading this, and it will help develop both the children’s reading and writing skills.
In Maths this term we will be learning about:
- Immediate recall of times tables and related division facts
- Mental and written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
- Fractions, decimals and percentages
- Place value and rounding
It is clear we have an exciting term ahead!
