Welcome to Year 6!
Welcome back to a new year - we have made a great start and are looking forward to a fantastic year.
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 .
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.
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 !
