Welcome To Year 6


This is it. The final summer term, and it's a busy one. 

This term in English, we will be concentrating on producing a final piece of writing in each of the genres. We will be focussing on developing our planning, editing and redrafting skills. There will also continue to be a punctuation and grammar focus as we approach the end of the year, where we will particularly look at different tense types. I always aim to choose a thoughtful class reader to provoke discussion and to give inspiration for writing. Rooftoppers was a great success during the Spring term and we are currently reading "A Series of Unfortunate Events." I will be asking for author recommendations for the next book. 

Throughout the term, there will be many speaking and listening opportunities for the pupils, as they develop their presention skills in preparation for high school. We will also be choosing a production to perform at the leavers' service, which will give lots of opportunities for any budding actors/ actresses. 

In maths, we will complete the year 6 curriculum by looking at statistics and measures. We will then be able to recap lots of the skills taught over the year to ensure that the pupils start their next school with high levels of competence. Our summer topic also lends itself to lots of cross curricular maths as we will be able to compare our performance to Olympic record holders, 

In Science, we will have completed the year 6 programme of study, which will allow us to do lots of cross curricular science, which will particularly be linked to our next whole school book topic.   

Our topic for this term is "Guinness World Records." Within this topic, we will be exploring Olympic records (as mentioned earlier) and we will also be looking at the tallest structures and longest bridges as a link to Design and Technology. 

Forest School will take place each fortnight on a Thursday afternoon. After the SATs we will return to regular outdoor sessions. 

In addition to all of this, summer term brings PGL. This is a great way to end their primary school journey. Every child and member of staff will be pushed to their limits and experience some fantastic activities. More details will follow closer to the time. 

The pupils will continue to have a weekly lesson delivered by Mrs Robinson and they will be working towards earning a national accredited Arts Award. 

The photographs on the website will be updated regularly. 

Homework will be given out on Friday and must be returned by the following Tuesday.

Please be aware that PE is on Friday and Forest School is on alternate Thursdays.
