Mathematics – Tynecastle High SchoolIn Maths, this Spring term, we will be concentrating on developing our arithmetic skills further as well as looking at Fraction, Decimal and Percentage Equivalents, 3D and 2D Shapes and their properties, types of angles and how to draw and measure angles. This will really help in securing and consolidating our understanding while developing our fluency skills further in preparation for our SATs in May!

Please make sure that you practice these skills at home and always ask if you need any additional support. We are here to always help you!

In our English lessons we will be looking at how to efficiently answer comprehension questions -in particular using our inference, literal and deduction skills. We will also be developing our year 6 writing skills by descriptive and biography writing as well as writing stories that raise issues and dilemmas. This Spring term, our English lessons will be primarily based on a range of Literacy Shed Videos before Mrs Kenyon takes over and studies the books: The Zoo and Stormbreaker.


Our science topic this half term is 'Light'. We will be learning about reflection, prisms, periscopes, mirrors and key scientists that discovered and investigated it.

Reciprocal Teaching - An Introduction

Please make sure you use these stratgeies when reading at home. Ask an adult to watch the video so they will understand what they can do to help you with your comprehension skills.


What is Reciprocal Reading?

Reciprocal Reading is an innovative and powerful classroom strategy that engages children and promotes enhanced comprehension and interactive learning.  Reciprocal Reading is designed to enhance comprehension in the classroom by enabling children to take on a more active role in discussing their texts, usually in small group reading sessions.  Pupils also learn teamwork, negotiation, listening and collaborative skills; all of which are essential skills.


There are 4 comprehension strategies:     

  • Predict: What are we going to read about in the next section? (Who, what, why, where, when, how?)
  • Clarify: Which words and phrases do we need to find the meaning of?     
  • Question: Can we ask questions to help us learn more about this text?   
  • Summarise: What are the main ideas of the text / this section?

In each session, children take on the four roles and see these images:

Questioner, Predictor, Summariser, Clarifier
