Year 6 – General Information
Welcome to Year 6!
Victorians – Mrs Lloyd
Edwardians- Mr Murray
As role models and leading by example, children in year 6 wear a black sweatshirt so that they are easily identifiable to the rest of the school. As well as exemplary behaviour, we set ourselves extremely high standard and challenge ourselves to believe and achieve in everything we do!
As the weather is getting colder please make sure the children bring an appropriate PE kit into school. Some of the PE sessions will take place outside so tracksuit bottoms and a PE jumper would be a good addition to the children’s PE bag.
Children will take part in PE every other Thursday.
If your child takes part in any lunchtime clubs please make sure they have a kit to change into.
Homework is given out on a Friday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday.
Children receive Maths and English homework.
Spelling lists are given to the children on a Tuesday to be learnt at home as well as practised in school. Spellings are tested on the following Tuesday.
This term our topic is ‘Journey To The Poles’. The children will be learning about the polar regions and the effects of plastic pollution.
As Artists the children will create a collage of a sea creature using plastic materials.
The children are also reading Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy and Shackleton’s Journey by William Grill. Brightstorm is about packed full of adventure and centres around twins called Arthur and Maudie and their race to South Polaris. Shackleton’s Journey is the true story of Ernest Shackleton and his expedition to Antarctica.
