MORNING BOOST: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday at 8:20 am. All welcome!
Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 is a very important year in primary school. Not only are our Year 6 pupils in their final year, they are also role models to the rest of the school. Miss Flint, Mrs Mantel, Mrs Hall and Mrs Young look to Year 6 to set a positive example and lead the way.
In Year 6, we work hard all year. We want pupils to work hard, aspire to be the best they can and make a positive contribution. This means trying hard in every area of school life.
Every subject is important in Year 6 and we value a balanced curriculum. We ensure all pupils are well prepared for their SATs in May and are able to show what they are capable of.
This half term, our topic is ‘Hola Mexico’. We will become historians, geographers and designers as we delve into the world of the Ancient Mayans as well as modern day Mexico. It’s an exiting topic with lots of cross-curricular links!
In literacy, we will be writing our own suspense stories based on the picture book ‘The Viewer’. We will use other texts to support our work and aim to develop our sentence structure to create atmosphere, tension and suspense. We will also look at writing our own non-chronological reports later this half-term.
In maths, we are exploring place value of numbers up to ten million. We will also consolidate our arithmetic skills.
PE is taught by our sport coach on Wednesdays and Thursday. Please remember kits!
Homework will be given out on Fridays with the expectation that it is returned on Wednesdays the following week. Reading Journal activities are also expected once a fortnight.
Year 6 is hard work, but we also strive to make it fun!
