Boston St Nicholas C of E Primary School
Year 6 Elder

Welcome to Elder Tree's Class page! We hope you enjoy reading about the things we have been getting up to and the fun we have been having.

In Year 6 we are getting excited about our upcoming SATs tests which begin on Monday 13th May, not long to go now! As a result out focus this term is 'Going for Goals'. To encourage the children (and the adults) we will be allowing the children to choose some of the rewards they might enjoy when they have achieved their targets.
In Maths we are focussing on the areas that we find tricky. To help with this we are offering additional booster classes in the morning and one evening after school each week.

In Literacy we will be covering a range of genres including; Stories with flashbacks, non-chronological reports, discussion text and letter writing. We are also setting up reading conferences where children will be set regular reading homework. We appreciate your support with this at home. We will be using a range of films to support our learning, including a short film called 'The Piano'.

In science this term we will spend the first week looking at healthy lifestyles as part of a whole school week. Over the rest of the term we will be looking at 'Earth, Moon and Stars and Light and Dark'.
