The Extraordinary Eagles!

 Newsletter – Autumn 1

 

Welcome to Year 6!  It’s so lovely to see everyone and start to get a bit more back to normal.  Everyone has already made a great start to the year.

 

 

Reading

Please keep up the reading at home. We are now able to send books home to read so your child will be bringing one home this week.  At the moment, they can record the pages that they have read on their bookmarks but we will be sending Reading Records home as well soon.

 

Targets:

 

Reading

I can summarise main ideas and key details, using quotations for illustration.

I can retrieve information from different sources.

I can explain and discuss my understanding by drawing inferences and justifying these with evidence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Science

Properties and changes of materials

I can compare and group materials based on their properties (e.g. hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity, [electrical & thermal], and response to magnets).

I can describe how a material dissolves to form a solution; explaining the process of dissolving.

I can describe and show how to recover a substance from a solution.

I can describe how some materials can be separated.

I can demonstrate how materials can be separated (e.g. through filtering, sieving and evaporating).

I know and can demonstrate that some changes are reversible and some are not.

I can explain how some changes result in the formation of a new material and that this is usually irreversible.

I can discuss reversible and irreversible changes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Homework

 

Your child will receive homework every Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. When the homework is from their homework books, we will continue to keep these at home. Like last year, we will put the homework on Teams and your child will upload a photo to show that they have completed it.  Then on a Thursday or Friday, we will release the answers so that the homework can be self-marked at home.

Water Bottles & PE Kit

 

Children are encouraged to bring drinks bottles to school with water so they can have a drink in class.

 

This half term, PE will be on a Monday afternoon and on a Friday morning. Please ensure your child comes dressed in an appropriate PE kit for outdoor PE on these days.  Long hair (any hair that is shoulder length) must be tied back and earrings should be removed.

 

If you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to help then please do not hesitate to ask.
