Welcome to Super Cedars!
Year 6 have had a brilliant week decorating their book bench! I’m so proud of them all!
Super Cedars celebrating the end of their SATs tests! Well done everyone! You have all been fantastic!
Welcome back and we hope you all had a fabulous Easter holiday!
This half term, Year 6 are in SATs revision mode! We are working super hard to revise all of our learning in maths including: the four operations, fractions, decimals and percentages, place value, statistics, shape and measure.
In literacy, we are applying lots of our grammar and spelling skills to SATs questions and we are reading lots of high level texts to help us develop our vocabulary ready for our reading test.

After a lovely half term holiday, Super Cedars have had a brilliant start back and are beginning to revise for our SATs tests!
In maths, we are revising and recapping fractions, decimals and percentages and looking at how to apply our key maths skills to a range of problems.
In literacy, we are studying a range of fiction and non-fiction texts and applying our knowledge of grammar and punctuation to these. We will be focusing particularly on colons, semi-colons and hyphens this half term.
In science we will be learning all about evolution and adaption. We will consider how humans have evolved over time according to Darwin's theory of evolution and look at environmental and genetic characteristics. We will also learn about at how this links to different animals and how adaption to different environments has led to variation and evolution of different species.
We hope you had a lovely Christmas beak and are ready for some fantastic learning in 2018!
Our topic work this term will be all about Geography and the wonderful world around us!
We will be learning how to read maps by using grid references and then we will learn about the physical geography of the Earth, including the biomes of the world and its mountain ranges.
We will also be doing some amazing art work using recycled materials as we think about how we, as humans, have an impact upon the environment around us.
In literacy this half term we will be learning all about stories that include issues and dilemmas, before writing our own story based on our class novel, Oranges in No Man's Land by Elizabeth Laird.
In maths this half term we will be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages and solving a range of problems using these.
In Super Cedars this week, we've been learning about all of the different components of blood! Have a look at our blood smoothies below which included plasma, platelets and white and red blood cells!
Welcome back after the October half term!
This half term, our topic is...
We will be learning all about how life in the Middle Ages was affected by the plague!
In literacy, we will be learning how to write discussion texts to show a balanced argument.
In maths, we will be continuing our work on the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and their formal written methods. Before Christmas, we will then move on to learning all about fractions.
In science, we will be looking at the human circulatory system! We will learn all about the heart, the components of blood and how nutrients are gained from our food then transported through the body.
Creative Conductors Workshop!
Welcome back to Year 6! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and I can't wait to make a start on some of our great learning this half term!
In literacy this half term, we will be basing our work on Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone! This will link with our genre - stories set in imaginary worlds. We will be looking at using a rich and varied vocabulary to excite our reader and build atmosphere and we will also be learning to use commas to mark a range of sentence openers and clauses.
During our Maths lessons this half term, we will be focusing on place value and calculations. We will read, write, order and round using numbers to ten million before using these numbers in many of our written methods.
We will then use the written methods of addition and subtraction, long multiplication and short and long division to solve a range of multi-step problems.
- PE is on a Friday morning and Tuesday afternoon.
- Homework is set on a Friday to be in for the following Friday.
- Reading diaries are checked on a Thursday
- During the Autumn term, children will be taking part in DARE and will be required to bring their DARE work book to each session. This will also have homework to complete for this regularly.
We are GOLDEN and we SPARKLE!
