Year 6 2019

Welcome to Year 6!

Miss Smith (6VS), Mr Constantine (6LC), Mrs Okon and Mr Hewitt make up the Year 6 staff team this year.

Welcome to the new school year! Please read on for a run through of what the Autumn term has in store.

Maths

In Maths, we will be covering Number & Place Value, Addition & Subtraction and Multiplication & Division. We will also be working hard on Arithmetic, which we will focus on daily. As always, times tables will be vital and any child who has not yet achieved their calculator should make this a priority using TTRockstars and other such resources.

 

English

This half-term the children will be focusing on enhancing their narrative writing. We will be exploring Treason by Berlie Doherty and using the structure to inspire us to write our own stories. Throughout all aspects of writing, we will be focusing on sentence structure, grammar and punctuation. This story links nicely with our theme focus of The Tudors.

Themes

We begin our new term with the theme Memories – a historical topic based around The Tudors. To start, our learning will focus on P.S.H.E, where the children will be exploring their aspirations for the end of Year 6 and for their future. We are also looking forward to hearing lots of fantastic stories about the children’s adventures during Summer. We will then move on to focusing on History, where we will look in depth at the impact that The Tudors had on Britain along with learning about key figures such as Henry VIII and Francis Drake and plenty more.
