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 Potter and Mrs Hall 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, out topic is ‘Darwin’s Delight’. We are learning about Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution. We are studying the science behind his thinking and looking at how animals have adapted to their habitats. Our geography skills will be tested when looking at the route he took on board the HMS Beagle.
In literacy, we are writing our own exciting narratives based upon the short animation ‘The ocean Maker’. Our aim is to improve sentence structure to create drama as well as continuing to develop the range of punctuation we use.
In maths, we are developing and consolidating our fraction, decimal and percentage understanding, This is a really key area of Year 6 maths and can be quite a challenge but our Year 6 class are rising to it! Please let us know any area your children might need more support in.
PE is taught by our sport coach on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please remember kits!
Homework is given out on Fridays and should be returned by Wednesday the following week. This can be marked at home by children/parents using the answers provided n the books. Please ask children to leave books open on Mrs Hall’s table with anything they have struggled with. Spelling lists and times table facts should also be practised at home.
Year 6 is hard work, but we also strive to make it fun!
