Welcome to Year 6

Miss Smith and Mrs Okon make up the Year 6 staff team this year.

Autumn Term

English

This half-term the children will be focusing on enhancing their narrative writing. We will be exploring Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell 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.

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.

Theme

We begin our new term with a focus on P.S.H.E, where the children will be exploring their aspirations for the end of Year 6 and for their future. The children will be attending a careers fair in school, having the opportunity to speak to various people in a variety of different professions. These include an architect, project manager, nail technician, journalist and NHS workers.

We will then turn to our Geography investigation as we explore the cities of Paris and Manchester. We will be comparing both physical and human features as well as examining how these cities have changed over time.

 

Science

This term our Science focus will be the circulatory system. We will be conducting investigations and exploring what our blood is made of and how the heart works.
