Year 6

Welcome to the Year 6 section of the website. The Year 6 teaching team for the upcoming academic year will be:

Teacher: Mrs. L. Newton

Learning Support:   Mrs. S. Burt, Ms. A. Stewart, Mrs D. Haines and Mrs. C. Clarke

During the autumn term our history focus will be about Ancient Greek life.

In science we will be learning about evolution and inheritance and animal including humans.

Our focus in maths will be problem solving in a range of contexts and securing the four mathematical operations. In addition, there will be a daily mental maths activity to increase speed and fluency. Your child will need to learn times table facts to 12 times tables by heart to help with quick recall.

Our English learning will be linked to quality texts, and will include spelling, grammar, reading comprehension and writing activities.

The Reading Challenge is designed to enhance the children's enthusiasm to read a wide range of texts, share the content and complete activities around the text.

Regular reading aloud and discussion of texts will help your child to understand the text they have read and improve their fluency.

P.E lessons will be on Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure that your child has a P.E kit for these lessons.

Homework will be set as a project and is to be completed over the half term. It is designed to encourage children to research independently and manage their time. Opportunities will be made for your child to use resources and complete some of this work in school.

The residential trip to Calshot has been booked for the week beginning 21st May 2018.

We look forward to a fantastic year!
