Welcome to Year Six

PE

Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Children will need to arrive in their PE kit on the day. Please can we ask that hair is tied up and no jewellery is worn on these days.

Year 6 will also attend swimming on Tuesdays and therefore will need to bring their swimming bag on this day.

Music

Year 6 will be continuing to learn to play the clarinet on Thursdays. Please make sure that children remember to bring their instrument in on this day each week.

Homework

Please support your child to complete their homework on the following websites: MyMaths, TTRockstars and Spelling Shed.

Keep encouraging them to check on Toppsta for the giveaways. There are some great new books to be won and the feeling of receiving a brand new book for free is well worth it.

Autumn 1

Welcome to Year 6! It doesn’t seem that long ago since we were in Year 4!

It will be a busy year for all of us in Year 6 as we work hard to the end of the Key Stage and prepare for high school.

In this first half term, our curriculum focus is the second world war. We will be focussing on how the war affected people and look closely at areas such as evacuation, rationing and propaganda.

In Art, we will be developing our sketchbook skills by using a range of media including pencils, water colours, charcoal, graphite, pastels and oil pastels.

In English, we are learning to write a flashback and have been using Toy Story 2 as a stimulus to write.

In Music, this year, we are continuing to learn the clarinet with Mrs Bell from Musica.

In Mathematics, we will continue to use the Power Maths books to boost our learning. However, as the year progresses, we will learn some maths concepts without the Power Maths books to help us to be secure in all of the key areas.

We will continue to learn Latin in Year 6 which will help us to build a greater understanding of words and the English words which have derived from Latin.

In enrichment sessions, we will develop our art skills, cooking skills and word processing skills.
