Welcome to the Year 6 page!
Year 6 we will be working very hard to develop our existing skills as well as learning lots of new and exciting things too! Year 6 is an important year, in terms of assessment, however we make sure that lessons are engaging and foster a love for learning! We follow a creative curriculum based on the Key Skills that children are required to know for their year group. We ensure that we have cross-curricular links with other subjects to develop our knowledge at a greater depth and to make learning more meaningful at this important stage in the children’s lives.
In Year 6, our times table knowledge is very important so keep practising
P.E – Wednesday afternoon. Autumn Term= Orienteering!
Swimming- Thursday afternoon
Homework: Times table and Spelling Quiz – every Friday morning.
As we progress through the academic year, homework will increase in order to prepare the children for the demand of high school but more importantly to consolidate knowledge and embed learning so the children are confident and ready for their SATs.
Maths – Please click on the links to see our Maths overview.
Our topic this half term is ‘Your Country Needs You!’.
So far we have loved learning about the cause of WW2. As historians we have analysed a variety of primary and secondary sources and looked for clues that these sources can give us.
As Artists we have been looking at the works of LS Lowry. We will keep you posted on our masterpieces.
We can’t wait for our very exciting trip to London. We will be taking a flight on the London Eye and visiting The Houses of Parliament to take part in a ‘Making Laws’ workshop.
Children in Year 6 all have access to iPads and Lap Tops.
All children use “Bug Club” (Active Learn) online.
Here is our curriculum jigsaw for the year…
