Year 6 - Snapper class

   Welcome to Snapper Class   

Snapper Class 

Mrs Lombard is our teacher in the mornings and Ms Elsworth teaches us in the afternoon. We also have Mrs Stone for PE and some of us go to Mrs Johnstone for Maths. 

So far this year we have learned about Mexico and World War 2. In the spring term we are studying 'Frozen Kingdom'. Ask us what we have learned...

 

Please see the links below for some extra help and games.


Remember you can use Mathletics and TimesTables Rockstars from home too!

Spelling:

The National Curriculum for Years 5 and 6 expects children to be able to:

  • Use further prefixes and suffixes and understand the guidance for adding them (such as –able and –ible)
  • Spell some words with ‘silent’ letters (such as knight)
  • Continue to distinguish between homophones and other words which are often confused
  • Use knowledge of morphology and etymology in spelling
  • Use dictionaries to check the spelling and meaning of words
  • Use a thesaurus

By the end of Year 6, children are expected to understand and be able to meet the challenging spelling demands outlined in the National Curriculum. Children’s knowledge is assessed through a grammar, punctuation and spelling test that children sit in May as part of a week of national tests.

National Curriculum Spelling Lists: By the end of Year 6 pupils should be able to spell all of these words and be able to use them in their writing.
