Welcome to Year 6 with Mrs Dunkin and Miss Hilton

Year 6 is an important yet exciting final year at Primary School. It provides many opportunities for our children to become mature, conscientious learners. As we prepare for the transition to Secondary School, the children will demonstrate their resilience when faced with challenges. Year 6 will require hard work but by the end of the year, we will be all proud of our achievements!


During this term we will be focusing our work around Holes by Louis Sachar. We will be writing diary entries and newspaper reports based upon the text.


At Sunny Bank we continue to develop a ‘mastery’ approach to maths. This term, children will be covering the following areas in maths as part of our Journey to SATs.

Read/ Write whole numbers to 10,000,000

Positive integers Negative integers

Adding and subtracting including decimals

Our science topics this term are animals including humans and electricity. I will link our learning in science to our class topics as much as possible.
