Welcome to Year 6!
We are incredibly excited to be teaching our wonderful Year 6 cohort this year. Although Year 6 is a very busy and important year, including preparing them for their transition to Secondary School, the children have lots of exciting topics, trips and activities to look forward to. At the end of the year, the children can look relax and enjoy a 'Hawaiian' themed fun day to round off and celebrate their hard-work and learning journey.
Our topics this year are as follows:
Autumn: Avengers Assemble,
South American Carnival
Spring: Walk Like an Egyptian
Summer: We’ll meet again! (WWII)
Science themes to be covered: Evolution & Inheritance, Electricity, Light, Living things & their habitats, Animals including humans.
We will continue to ask the children to come to school in their P.E kits on their designated days.
This will eliminate the need to share changing rooms.
English and Maths Homework is set on alternate weeks on a Friday. This needs to be returned to school on the following Thursday and will be placed inside each child’s homework folder which will remain in school.
Children are expected to read x5 times per week at home – and logged in their RED journal which will signed weekly in class and logged as evidence for SATs. A signature will be required weekly to acknowledge that your child has completed independent reading.
Get ready, get steady, it's time to delve into the best franchise around - MARVEL!
Year 6 will be studying and researching superheroes and villains galore combined with exciting writing tasks including high level descriptions, comic strips, script work, persuasive letters, anatomical art sketching as well as superhero boot camp. Can you rise to the challenge Year 6?
In order to achieve ‘Expected’ in Writing for SATS, Year 6 must achieve a particular level of continuous cursive handwriting in order to be awarded this standard. Children will be awarded a pen licence when they have shown that they can continuously meet this expectation. They are then permitted to write with a black 'frixion' pen in English and Theme work.

This YouTube channel is FULL of reasoning problems (paper 2 and paper 3 of the SATs). The channel presenter will read the question (these questions are taken from the maths scheme we use in school, so they fit in perfectly with our curriculum), then he will demonstrate HOW to answer the question. Challenge yourself - pause the video before he explains the answer and see if you can solve the problem.
work through each playlist, completing a few problems per day. Playlists: 1) White rose Problem of the Day 2016, 2) White rose Problem of the Day 2016, 3) White rose Problem of the Day 2016. Each playlist contains 40 - 60 videos.
