Welcome back Year 6!
Class Teachers: Mrs Cotterill (Wed - Fri) & Mrs Dossett (Mon & Tues)
Support Staff: Mrs Mitchell
We are so delighted to welcome you back after such a long time and we are really looking forward to teaching you in your final year of primary school. As many weeks have been missed we will be reassessing for areas to catch up and which topics to revise over the Autumn term. School as we previously knew it is a little different now, but we will all settle quickly into the new routines and systems and rest assured that your final year in Primary School will be one to be remembered!
Please do get in touch via the school office if you would like to arrange a meeting with us to discuss any concerns you may have, the safety and education of your children is paramount to us.
Year 6 Topics
Year Six will start this academic year learning about the Ancient Greeks and how this period of time has influenced us today. This will be followed by our World War 2 topic. We will learn why, when and how World War 2 started, learn about Anne Frank and read parts of her diary and also learn what life was like for British people during this period of time. We will also be reading 'Goodnight Mr Tom' alongside the topic to support the learning in our topic. We will finish the year with the Mountains High, River Deep topic, studying a mapping unit of work which links in very well with our residential trip to Lakeside. The children will be studying areas of the UK, learning how to read 4 figure and 6 figure grid references and looking at different mountains and lakes in the UK.
Throughout the Autumn term, the children will be given both a Maths and an English piece of homework every week. The expectation is that the children take the homework home on a Monday and bring it back the following Monday to mark in class in order for them to see their misconceptions right away and are able to address these with the teacher.
During the Spring term, the children will be given Maths, Grammar and Reading CGP books in which they will be told weekly which pages they must complete. They must continue bringing these in on a Monday to mark in class.
Spellings will be handed out every week. Children will be given 10 spellings to learn and a spelling test will take place every Monday.
In addition to this set homework, each week your child should read aloud most days and their reading record books signed.
PE will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday and PE kits should be worn on these days. No earrings or watches are allowed.
