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

During the summer term, year 6 will be learning about The World with a focus on rainforests. Our history focus will learning about Ancient Islamic civilisation.

In Science we will be learning about living things and their habitats, and animals including humans.

Our focus in maths will be problem solving in a range of contexts and securing the four mathematical operations. 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 we have introduced this year is proving to be successful, the children's enthusiasm to read a wide range of texts, share the content and complete activities around the text is clear.

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.

We are looking forward to our residential trip to Calshot Activity Centre, where the children are able to participate in a range of exciting and adventurous activities. We will of course share photographs and experiences with you following the trip.

Additionally, there will be an opportunity for the children to become competent cyclists and to learn to use the roads safely.

Auditions for the end of year production will be held in June. The children will be busy rehearsing for the production in the last half term. The production will be held on the evenings of 18th and 19th of July.

The Year 6 Leaver's assembly will be on 21st July at 2:15pm, we hope to see you all at this event.
