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!

I hope you've all enjoyed a restful and relaxed summer holiday? The school has changed a little - it's like a brand new school!  As well as this, the Year 6 classroom is now at the opposite end of the school. Autumn term is an exciting time for year 6, with lots of new learning experiences and opportunities to take on new responsibilities.

This half term the class will be reading a bone chilling book called 'Clockwork' by Phillip Pullman. All of their writing will be based upon this book. In maths, we will begin with place value and move on to looking at the four basic operations. In science the class will be concentrating on the water cycle initially then moving on to studying different types of habitats. In addition, year 6 will be having drumming lessons with Mr Proctor every Thursday morning and Mr Gibbons will be taking them for Tag Rugby on a Wednesday afternoon.

Mrs Hayes takes the class on a Tuesday, she will be focusing on grammar, spelling and reading skills aswell as French in the afternoon.

As always, there will be a number of 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.
