Welcome to Year 6! Our team consists of Miss Bruce, Miss Brown, Mrs Bourke, Mrs Eddison, Mr Mason and Miss Rooney.
During the spring term, we will be looking our project question is: Are Mutants Livings?
We will completing a number of Science topics about living things and their habitats to help us investigate this and we will be transforming into scientists and carrying out a number of investigations to deepen our scientific knowledge. We will be thinking about how to conduct fair testing and drawing conclusions from our results.
As part of our English lessons and our novel study learning journey, we will be entering into the exciting world of the Extinction Trials written by S. M. Wilson. Throughout our journey, we will be taking part in a range of immersive activities, which will help us understand the thoughts and feelings of the characters. Within lessons, we will use all of our learning and experiences to create writing of different genres including narrative, discussion and recount.
In maths, we will be exploring the four operations but applying our number knowledge to other areas of maths including fractions, percentage, algebra and shape. As ever, we will be practising our times tables as these are important for all areas of maths – lots of practise at home using ttrockstars will really help with this.
In year 6, we have a big focus on personal organisation and independence. The children should ensure that they are organised for every school day:
- P.E. Kit needs to be in school every day
- Children need to be heard read at home 5 times a week with a record being made in planners
- Children need to practise their timestables up to 12 x 12 every week
- Homework needs to be completed to a high standard and given in on time. Books will go out on a Thursday and should be returned by Tuesday.
- A water bottle needs to be school everyday.
