Year 6: final frontier

These are the voyages of an intrepid group of children

It's their one year mission to explore new topics

To seek out new life and to learn about new civilisations

To boldly go where no class has gone before!



Welcome to Year 6

A Happy New Year to you all! I hope you've all enjoyed a restful and enjoyable break.We've got a busy half term planned and lots of exciting activities to look forward to. Firstly, Year 6 have the Bikeability training sessions on Weds 16th and Thu 17th January - Please bring in your bicycles and helmets. As well as this, we've also got  'Chemistry with Cabbage' on 24th January. This is a whole day packed full with lots of brilliant science experiments and practical teamed activities. 

We've also got a new book to read - it's a dark and mysterious story called 'Moonlocket' by Peter Bunzel. All of their writing will be based upon this book. In maths, we will be building upon last half term's work and moving on to studying Decimals, Fractions and Percentages. Later in the half term we will be studying algebra. 

The topic work this term will be centred around China. Year 6 will look at all aspects of life in modern China, study it's history and culture and investigate current environmental issues found in the country. As well as this, the class will be looking at the story of the Willow pattern and basing their artwork on this topic.

Mrs Hayes will take the class on a Tuesday, she will be focusing on grammar, spelling and reading skills aswell as French in the afternoon. Throughout the term year 6 will continue to have drumming lessons with Mr Proctor every Thursday morning.

As always, there will be a number of rotated jobs and responsibilities for children in year 6 such as collecting snack money or assembly duty. Homework is given out on a Friday and collected in the following Wednesday. PE kits need to be in school for the entire week.

The booster sessions at the 8.15 club will begin on Wednesday 16th January.
