Year 6 - Autumn 2

Well done Year 6 – we did lots of learning in the first term and you all came back raring to go and you have all impressed us with your commitment to catching up. 

Although this is the term when the clocks have gone back and our days seem to get shorter and shorter and darker and darker, it is also the term where we have the winter solstice and we can begin to look forward to brighter days again. We can also look forward to celebrating our festive period together, and, although it will be different this year, we will still have lots of fun making decorations, trimming up the tree and having our Christmas party. 

Talking of lighter days – we will be exploring the phenomenon of light and how it works though this may start with a shocking discovery. 

Through our Armistice reflections we will also be looking at the life of one of England’s most injured soldiers and how he overcame adversity by beating the odds and still coming out looking out for other people. 

Your ‘magister’ Miss Tipple will continue to learn a bit of Latin with you and you can explore how they used phonetics very differently to us. 

Mrs Moxon will continue to read one of her favourite books to you – The Fib – so we can see if George gets up to any more mischief and if he gets into anymore trouble with his mum! 

We have lots of things planned for you this half term and we are excited for the festive season – let’s enjoy it together.

Welcome back to our new Year 6's!

We hope you enjoyed your summer holidays and found some time to relax as this year is going to be BUSY! We have so many things planned for you and we are extremely excited to get started. We know that some of you may be feeling a little apprehensive about your return to school - it's been a long time for some of you since you last sat in a classroom but we want you to know that everything will be okay and it's okay to feel a little bit nervous. We'll let you in on a secret - even we feel it too! We will be there for you on the first day back to welcome you into school and settle you in and if you do have any worries, please come and talk to us so that we can try to make you feel comfortable and happy.

Before we start with any learning, we will go through all of the things that you need to know which might be new to you and might not have been systems in school before covid-19. This will help to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to keep you safe and help you learn to the best of your ability. Once we have settled back in, we will get to the good bits! What are we going to learn?

Well, we will start our term off with citizenship week, we have a book 'The Bottle of Happiness' which we will be the focus for our learning for the first couple of weeks. In Geography, we will be learning all about rainforests. In History, our focus will be on the Aztecs, I wonder if you already know anything about this area? For Maths, we will start the term by developing our understanding of place value and number knowledge. We will also be starting to learn a new language with Mrs Moxon, I wonder if you can guess which language this will be? Miss Tipple is really excited to be sharing one of her favourite books with you as your class novel - 'The Wolf Wilder' by Katherine Rundell. She also writes 'The Explorer' which we will look at extracts from to support our rainforest learning.

We have a lot of exciting lessons planned for you and hope that you are eager to get back to learning in school - we are looking forward to meeting you all and finding out more about you.
