Miss Cowl - Year 6 Intervention

class intervention

This academic year I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with smaller groups of year 6 children in order to provide them with personalised learning and provision.
This term years 5 and 6 have been learning about Ancient Greece for their topic work therefore for our English curriculum we have been studying – Myths and Legends. We have read and analysed a variety of Greek Myths in order to extend our vocabulary, reading skills and identify the features, similarities and differences between Myths and Legends. We have been reading the novel “Percy Jackson the Lightning Thief” by Rick Riordan: which we are thoroughly enjoying as the plot unfolds; keeping us on tenterhooks wondering what will happen next (something all good books will do!)
Next we plan to be creative by writing our own myths; we have been carefully thinking about our characters and the setting of our creative myths. We aim to show the new punctuation, vocabulary and grammar skills we have been learning during our Punctuation and Grammar sessions in order to control our writing to add suspense and tension.
We are very ambitious in our English group; the children have been working very hard and have set goals to achieve for the end of the academic year – to which they are sure to achieve if they continue with their positive attitudes and independent learning techniques.

In Maths we have been focusing on place value and the number system so far this academic year and we have already achieved so much to extend our knowledge! We can multiply and divide whole numbers and decimal numbers by 10, 100, 1000 and 10,000! We have improved our understanding of the values of numbers and we can order decimal numbers to 3dp. Now we are moving onto the methods we use and applying them to word problems – we are making good progress with this and are sure to achieve our level 4’s come SATs (May 2015.)
During the afternoons our focus is mainly Maths and English – we have very small groups of no more than 6 children in order to provide them with lots of opportunities to learn to their individual needs.
