Year 6

Here are a selection of photographs from our recent trip to Plas Dol-Y-Moch in Snowdonia, Wales. We had such an amazing time whilst we were being challenged with adventurous activities. We loved every second of it and wish we could go back! 

 

Welcome to Year 6!

 

  • Your teachers this year are: Miss Nicklin and Mr Hayer.
  • Your teaching assistants are: Mrs Riches, Mrs Hall and Mrs Gissane.

 

Summer term


We are working very hard to improve our maths, reading and writing. We will also continue with our Read Write Inc spelling program, as well as our punctuation and grammar focus.

 

Remember - you have Read, Write Inc every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Please remember to bring your log book into school on each of these days. 

This term in our Creative Curriculum lessons, we continue our voyage of discovery to understand all about World War 2. We will then move onto our Wonderful World project where we will discover about mountains and Antarctica.

 

Our art focus will allow us to learn about the work of British artist, Henry Moore. We will investigate his sketches from during The Blitz, as well as creating sculptures that are reminiscent of his style. During our history focused lessons, we will discover about the Blitz, Anne Frank and the holocaust. In Design Technology focused lessons, we will be exploring savoury dishes that were cooked during World War 2, in addition to having a go at making our own!  

 

In science this term, we will be learning about a variety of forces, magnetism and friction. We will also be suggesting experiments that you can try at home with your family and friends to understand how these scientific concepts work.

 

Indoor PE will take place on Wednesday (Dance) and Thursday (Swimming). Please remember your full kit- otherwise your class could run the risk of not being in contention to win Mr Hardwick's Class of The Week competition!

 

And of course we will be rehearsing for our END OF TERM PRODUCTION!!

 

This will be a busy term for all of us- just as SATS are over we have loads more to do.


Have you seen the Kids' Zone? Here you can play games and visit some cool websites which will help you with your homework and revision!

 

Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your teacher know!


 

In additional to completing a homework task from the grid each week, during this term, you will also receive an additional piece of either maths, grammar or reading homework each week. This will be issued to help you revise for the upcoming SATs tests, as well as practise the skills that you have been taught in class. Children who complete their additional homework will be rewarded with additional merit points! 

 

Homework deadlines

Your marked homework will be given back to you by Wednesday. Following this, you will have up until Tuesday of the next week to complete your next chosen task and hand it in.
