Welcome to Year 6
New School Year Begins!
Welcome back! We hope you have had a
fantastic summer and are recharged and raring to tackle a new school year!
There will be lots of exciting learning opportunities to explore and get involved in.
If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher via the office or e-mail. We also look forward to seeing you at our Open Evenings in October.
Learning Challenge – Could you have been seen but not heard?
As we seek answers, we will make learning links across all areas of learning, specifically history, art and citizenship.
We are confident that the children will show great enthusiasm for this Learning Challenge - finding out more about an important part of England’s past and recognising how life has changed for children.
Maths & English
Maths will focus on number work skills including place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division. The children will be given the opportunity to make links to apply these skills in real-life context investigations applying their reasoning and problem solving skills.
We will continue to practice our times tables off by heart to 12 x 12 in order to support our learning.
In English, children will be given regular targets to ensure continuing improvement in their reading and written work. We will begin with story writing to enable the children to include a range of vocabulary and punctuation. Within our daily lessons we will also be focusing on spellings, punctuation, grammar, handwriting and presentation.
Science: Do all animals and plants start life as an egg?
PE: Tag rugby and dance PSHCE & RE: Changing Me/Beliefs in our community
Trying Our Best and Aiming High
