Year 6

 

new welcome sign

 

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 Moss, Miss Flint 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, our topic is ‘Blood Heart’. We will become scientists and delve into the world of hearts, blood and circulation with lots of cross-curricular links!

In literacy, we will be writing our own suspense stories based on the film clip ‘Alma’. 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 fractions, decimals, percentages and algebra. We will also consolidate our arithmetic skills. 

PE is taught by our sport coach on Monday and Wednesday. 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!
