Welcome to Year 6
Mrs Dunkin - Class Teacher Mrs Rogan - Higher Level Teaching Assistant
Year Six 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 Six will require hard work but by the end of the year, we will all be proud of our achievements!
Our first core text is Trash by Andy Mulligan. We will be looking at journalistic writing, creating our own articles and newspapers. We will be completing narratives, considering the next chapter. In addition to this, to coincide with the visit of the Young Shakespeare company we will be writing and performing poetry.
Our second text is Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. From the text we shall be completing explanation writing, recounts and instructional writing.
