Welcome to Year 6
Teacher: Mrs Hanna
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Brice
This year will be very busy, there is a lot to do in preparation for secondary school: consolidation of learning from previous years and covering new content.
It is important that children have their PE kits in school on Wednesday and Friday. The year 6 children will not require pencil cases as any equipment they need will be provided. However, if children would like to bring in their own handwriting pen then that would be lovely.
Autumn: In the Autumn term we will be learning about the Anglo-Saxons, looking at all aspects of Anglo-Saxon life. This will be the theme through much of our Topic, Art, DT and LIteracy work, allowing the children to be completely immersed in the subject.
We will be concentrating on place value in maths and the four operations in order to ensure that the children are confident with all styles of questions. In order for the year 6 children to progress smoothly through the level of calculation expected rom them number confidence and particularly knowledge of times tables is essential. It would be very helpful if times tables could be practised and reinforced at home.
In science we will be exploring the human body, including the heart, circulatory system, diet and digestion. This will include various experiments, dissection and model making to explain and show the children how our bodies work.
In computing we will be working on developing the children's coding skills using Crumble software and Swift coding tools. This will allow the children to block code and lead to writing simple codes independently.
Spring: In the spring our topic will be Rainforest, concentrating on geography and a study of environments. In science we will be studying evolution, how animals adapt, variance and human evolution.
Summer: In the summer the children will be sitting their SATs, so initially we will be ensuring the have fully prepared for those. Then we will be doing short studies of time periods in British history. In science we will be looking at water cycles and electricity.
Please keep an eye on this page as we will be adding photos of all the exciting things we get up to very soon.
