Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to Year 6.
All our English work and Reading work link to our class texts that allow us to take a cross curricula approach to our learning. Some of the texts we enjoy in Year 6 include: Holes, Goodnight Mister Tom, Alex Rider and Sky Hawk. Children will learn to apply grammar for writing across a range of genres whilst having the opportunity to draft and edit their work to produce writing that they can be extremely proud of.
In maths, children will secure their arithmetic skills in preparation for their end of Key Stage Two SATs. Children will be able to apply the four number operations, find percentages of amounts, work with fractions and decimals. Children will also continue to strengthen their reasoning skills as they apply maths to real life problems and investigations.
During the Autumn term children will enjoy the topics 'Blood Heart' where they will learn about the human circulatory system and 'Frozen Kingdom' where they explore the polar regions, their inhabitants and in infamous voyage of the Titanic.
In the Spring term children will learn about evolution through the topic of 'Darwin's Delights'. They will explore the developments in technology through the topic 'Tomorrow's World' and consider how they believe technology will impact their lives in the future.
In their final term at St Paul's, children will have the opportunity to go on a residential trip to Condover Hall where they will experience team building and outdoor activity skills, plus take part in lots of fun activities. Their time in school, will focus on the Ancient Maya Civilisation within our topic 'Hola Mexico' before their final topic 'A Child's War' teaches them all about World War II from the viewpoint of an evacuee during this time.
Year 6 staff are Miss Buchray, Mrs Kapoor and Mrs Hartland.
