Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

Class Teacher: Miss Anderton
LSA's: Mrs Harrison & Ms Newbury

Autumn 2

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your support, in our first term back. Below are all the exciting topics and important points for our next term in year 6.

Topic: A Child’s War
A siren sounds, a building crumbles, and a spitfire zooms overhead! Take cover its 1939 and Britain are at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory.

Class Trip: Imperial War Museum- Wednesday 5th December 2018

English
In English, we will be developing our reading, writing and grammar skills through exploring both fiction and non-fiction writing styles. We will work through the various stages of our topic linking to non-fiction texts as well as internet use to find out facts. Our class reader will be The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas as well as looking at the story Goodnight Mr. Tom.

Mathematics
In Mathematics this term, we will be continuing to work through our Maths No Problem journey. Our focus this term is fractions. Regular arithmetic tests will be given to the children in post teaching sessions to get them used to test style questions.

Reading at Home
In year 6, it is important that you read with your child at home AT LEAST five nights a week and sign their reading record. We allow year 6 children to sign their reading record themselves twice a week. Children must have it signed to gain their sticker. Mrs Harrison will be making a note of children that have read so they can earn their sticker on the reading chart.

In previous years, Y6 have had the highest percentage of readers each week in assembly. Come on, we can keep it going!

Physical Education
Monday and Wednesday. Full kit will be needed to take part!

Religious Education
Was Jesus the Messiah?
We will be looking at some of Jesus’ miracles and how they influenced many Christians around the world.

Science
Circulatory System
We will learn the importance of the Heart in our bodies. Did you know that the entire trip around your body only takes blood about 20 seconds in total?

Spellings
Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday, children will be tested on a Friday.

We are always around at the end of the day, so please feel free to see us if you have any questions!
