Welcome to Year 6!
I am looking forward to sharing your child’s learning journey and supporting them as they embrace all the exciting challenges, opportunities and responsibilities that Y6 will give them as the eldest children in our school. Our learning opportunities will showcase your child’s remarkable resilience, intelligence, kindness and compassion towards their fellow pupils. Examples of their work and activities will be updated regularly on our page so you can see how truly fantastic they are - let the adventure begin!
In our lessons, we will revise dictionary meanings enabling us to use each word in the correct context. During their spelling test children will be given the word, it will then used in context in a sentence and the word repeated once more.
As well as our daily practice sessions, Y6 will be given a specific number or numbers to revise for a week ready for a timed weekly test which will have 90 calculations using both multiplication and division. There will always be a homework sheet below to help revision for the given number/numbers which can be either viewed or downloaded as a pdf for printing if you wish.
We've all been working hard, using our learning from our Geography topic 'Shackleton's Antarctic', Y6 have written an information text - just like you would find in a children's book about the Antarctic.
I am so impressed by the quality and presentation of the work they have completed - huge well done from me!
In Y6 we use knowledge organisers to support our learning in some of our subjects. We have them stuck into our subject books or on our desks so that we can refer back to them, use them as a revision tool or remind ourselves what we need to include in our work eg. writing to meet the expected standards.
History and Geography knowledge organisers will be added before we begin each unit
