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 ‘Frozen Kingdom’. We will develop and apply our geographical skills as well as using scientific investigations to test questions. We will also find out about animal adaptation in extreme cold climates. Year 6 are also lucky to have Miss Thompson delivering Spanish lessons this half-term which is great because she is an expert!
In literacy, we are writing our own non-chronological report based on the book ‘Wizardology’. Our aim is to use a range of adventurous and technical vocabulary as well as high-level punctuation.
In maths, we are continuing our work on fractions. We will also explore coordinates and how shapes can be translated and reflected in coordinate grids.
PE is taught by our sport coach on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please remember kits!
Homework will continue to be given out on Fridays with the expectation that it is returned on Wednesdays the following week. Please also practise spellings at home.
Year 6 is hard work, but we also strive to make it fun!
