Year 6 - Kestrels 2020

Kestrels 2020/2021
Welcome to the Year 6 Page.
We move into our Spring term having to face another lockdown. This means many of us will be working fom home. To help with this your teachers will be working to ensure that as much as possible we stick to the same work that you would have been doing, had you been in school. It is really important that you attend your daily google classroom, if you are at home, and complete the tasks and attend the zoom sessions arranged. It will be a difficult time, but we have done this before and can do it again, Keep in touch with each other to help and encourage each other through it, and contact the school if you are needing help or support.
Wishing everyone a Safe New Year.
Mr Hamilton and Mrs Price.

We will be studying World War 2 with a focus on evacuees; how the war started and ended; the Holocaust; the role of women in the war and the impact of the war in our local area. If anyone can share any information about the local impact of World War 2 we would love to hear from you.
We will be covering decimals, percentages, ratio, scale factoring and time over the coming weeks. We will also be doing a weekly focus to practise the basic arithmetic skills which we worked hard on last term.  Please make sure that you are still accessing Timestable Rockstars to speed up and develop your knowledge of times tables and be ready to apply this knowledge to your division work.
