If you have any questions or messages for the Year 6 team please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Can the children please have their PE kits in school all week. Our PE days are Wednesdays and Fridays. As we run a lap daily, children should have trainers in school every day.
- It is vital in Year 6 that the children are reading at home as often as possible and are bringing in their reading diaries every day so that we can check their reading and sign their records when we read with them.
- Please can all pupils have a water bottle in school with them every day. As the weather gets colder, please can all pupils bring a coat in too.
What's happening this year?
Below is a short overview of what will happen each term in Year 6 this year.
We started Year 6 with an amazing residential trip to Dean Field Study Centre. This was a fun filled, jam packed adventure that really bonds the children and teachers. We zoomed along the zip wire, jumped off of the leap of faith and canoed along the lake.
Everyone has had an absolutely fantastic week getting to know each other and bonding as a Year 6 team.
In Maths this term we will revisit place value and consolidate our knowledge. We will also recap our methods of calculation.
Our class book is "Holes," by Louis Sachar. We will link our Talk for Writing units to this.
Our Geography learning is about fieldwork. We will use Ordnance and Survey maps to explore our local area, then and now.
In RE we are looking at what it means to be a Sikh today.
In French our unit is: "All around town"
In PE we are doing team building and ball skills.
In science we will look into classifications of animal groups and then looking at keys.
In art, we will look at colour theory.
This term is jam packed with lots of exciting things!
In English we continue to read Holes and start 'Letters from the Lighthouse' by Emma Carroll. Our Talk for Writing focuses on discussion and our Reading will focus on using a variety of comprehension skills.
In maths we are securing our arithmetic skills and working on fractions. We are aiming to be secure in calculating with fractions by Christmas!
Science is all about electricity, making and drawing circuits and how to use electricity safely.
We have anti- bullying week which is when we develop the themes through PSHE and discuss issues together. Our PSHE theme for the term is celebrating difference.
In music our main focus is preparing for the Christmas Carol concert.
Our History unit this term is World War Two. We will explore a range of questions linked to life in WWII. We are also linking this to our Computing unit this term which is designing a web page. Children will produce their own websites about the War.
Our RE theme is Incarnation, when we will ask the philosophical question, "Was Jesus the Messiah?"
