Welcome to Year 6 

This year, the staff working in class will primarily be Mr Hind and Mr Burridge, with Mr Barrans teaching on a Wednesday afternoon.

In Year 6, we learn in a positive way and always try to do our best. Our class vision is something we take very seriously and strive to adhere to it at all times.

This term, our topic focus is on the Ancient Egyptians. We will be getting involved in a variety of cross-curricular activities from designing our own holiday brochures to making Ancient Egyptian style bread.

In maths, we'll continue to follow the White Rose scheme, which begins with a focus on place value. This will be followed by the four contracted written methods before we get stuck into fractions.

In literacy, the children will continue to develop their writing ability, producing a variety of written work. This will begin with a descriptive piece of writing on Pandora, using short clips from the film 'Avatar'. Following on from this, we'll begin reading 'Holes' by Louis Sachar.

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

Homework will be provided to the children each Friday (via Google Classroom) and is expected back in by the following Wednesday.
