Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 - top of the school and a chance for some exciting activities and a chance to develop your resilience and responsibility. We kick off the year with lots of speeches - head boy and head girl as well as the house and vice captains and there is always a lot of competitions as the pupils write some fantastic speeches.
We want you to have a great year and prepare you so that you are independent , focused learners who are ready to move to your new schools by the end of the year.
We study Stanley Spencer in art , The Battle of Britain in topic as well as the Maya people . Science is light, circuits and evolution and this year we will have a STEM week where you will get to show parents what you have been up to.
In English we will be studying several films and books to develop our narrative writing and look at how to write formally - and write a formal letter and see if you can get a response (one year the Prime Minister came!)
In maths there will recaps on the four operations and place value before we move onto lots of fractions/decimals and percentages- with loads of problem solving . Make sure you know your times tables - these are crucial as they save a lot of time answering questions if you know them.
Year 6 is full of lots of exciting activities including the famous Rhos residential trip where you get to spend 6 nights away from your family rock climbing, gorge walking and most importantly tidying up after yourself ! Plus in the summer term you get a chance to try different careers at Kidzania - and can even spend and make your own money !
Check with your teacher when PE lessons are. Spellings , maths and english homework is given every week so make sure you bring it back every week . It is set on a Thursday and due in the following Thursday . There is also an optional grid with lots of choices to show us what you can do (see below) .
Get in touch with class teachers via Seesaw or email - your child can give you this if they ask, or via home/school books.
Year 6 is a great year and of course there is the production at the end of the year ... We have already bought next years and it's going to be great !
