Year 6 – General Information

Welcome to Year 6!

Victorians – Mrs Lloyd/ Mrs Wilson

Edwardians- Mr Murray

Windsors- Mrs Rainford/Mrs Martin

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!

English

The children are looking at ‘The Journey’ by Francesca Sanna. This week we will be looking at some past SAT papers and writing letters inspired by the characters of ‘the journey’.

Weekly spellings are sent home on  Wednesday to be tested the following Wednesday.

Reminders

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

Homework is given out on a Friday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday.

Children receive Maths and English homework.

 

Spellings

Spelling lists are given to the children on a Wednesday to be learnt at home as well as practiced in school. Spellings are tested on the following Wednesday.

Maths

In Maths this week Year 6 are focusing on multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000. We will also be looking at word problems and the best ways to approach answering them.

Creative Curriculum

This term our topic is ‘Natural Disasters’. The children will be learning all about the different Natural Disasters that occur around the world. They will learn where they occur, why they occur and about the devastation that they can cause.

This week the children are learning about the different layers of the Earth and are beginning to think about how these may contribute to different natural disasters.
