Welcome to Year 6

The staff working in class will continue to be Mr Hind, Mr Burridge and Mrs Egan-Sheath, with Mr Barrans teaching on a Wednesday afternoon.

This term, we’ll be starting to focus more on the SAT tests: discussing the style of questions, completing past papers, as well as discussing test techniques.

Homework will continue to be set on Google Classroom each week. This is to be completed and handed in via Google Classroom the following Wednesday. The children also have access to their Education City account, where they can access educational activities based on maths, English and science. 

During the first part of this term, our literacy work will focus on our time spent at Robin Wood, which was amazing, by the way. The children will complete a number of written pieces including: a report on Dobroyd Castle (where the activity centre is based), a diary of their time at Robin Wood and a descriptive suspense story. We will continue to read ‘Who Let the Gods Out’ in class, completing comprehension questions based on each chapter.

Our topic focus this term is the Vikings. Some of the work in topic lessons will extend into computing lessons, using the internet to safely research and produce work, whilst also focusing on the safe use of mobile phones.

 

Year 6 PE will be on a Monday and Friday afternoon.
