Welcome to Year 6  


  Mrs Dunkin - Class Teacher 

Welcome to Year 6 with Mrs Dunkin and Mrs Holgate

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 High 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 Journey to Jo’Burg by Beverley Naidoo. We will be writing diary entries and formal letter writing based upon the text and our main Learning Challenge theme of Why should we be ashamed of slavery?



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
  • Multi-step problems
  • Long Multiplication
  • Long Division
  • Symmetry
  • Calculations with four operations 



Our science topic this half term is investigating animals including humans and a journey around our bodies.
