Welcome to Year 6  

          Mrs Dunkin - Class Teacher    Miss Hilton - Teaching Assistant

Welcome to another busy half term in Year 6! We have an exciting few weeks ahead of us - with lots of exciting things planned. Here is our learning journey for the half term ahead...


There will be a heavy focus on SPAG this half term. We will then use this knowledge to improve our writing through a range of genres. We will be writing a range of non-fiction genres including persuasive writing, explanations, balanced arguments and newspaper reports. We will also be planning, drafting and editing narrative writing linked to our core text: Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. 


After analysing the tests that the children completed last half term, our maths work will be tailored towards narrowing the gaps that the children have as we try and prepare them for their SATs. We will be focusing heavily on geometry, with work on both shape and position and movement, as well as revising work on fractions, decimals and percentages. Throughout our maths work there will be a strong focus on problem solving, reasoning and mental arithmetic.


The focus question for our science lessons is ‘How do you light up your life’. We will be exploring how the eyes work and will be investigating how light travels. We will be proudly showcasing our work on this at our ‘Night at the Museum’ at the end of the half term and look forward to seeing you there!


Our Topic for the first half term will have a geography focus. We will be further developing our understanding of the water cycle and will be investigating the importance and use of water as an energy source. We will be doing this through drama, art, design and technology, music and ICT.
