Year 6

Welcome to Year 6

  • Teacher: Mrs Marsden
  • Teaching Assistants: Mrs Seddon

Welcome to year 6 and your last year in primary school! This is a really important year as you are now the role models for all the other children in our school. There is a lot of work to do, but a lot of fun to be had too. Not only will you go on our fabulous residential trip to Robin Wood, you’ll also prepare for and take your SAT tests. Throughout the year you will develop your learning powers as well as building your independence, resilience, organisational and communication skills so that you are fully ready to take the next big step to secondary school.

Autumn Term 2018

Well it’s been a really busy and successful start to the year. At the start of the year, the children read three books to help them understand our school’s mission statement and how it relates to their lives. They’ve also managed to complete their 100 Book Class Challenge and went to watch, “Mary and the Witch’s Flower” as a reward. Will they be able to complete their independent 10 Book Challenge next term?

In the first term, the school was visited by none other than …a Tyrannosaurus Rex! The children wrote their own stories based on this theme as well as learning about evolution, adaptation and the secrets revealed by fossils. They’ve also learned about the classification system and observed snails and other mini beasts.

They’ve also learnt about the animals, vegetation and climate of the Amazon rainforest as well as read many traditional tales from this region. They’ve also created their own Amazonian tribe. The ‘Onca’ tribe have 12 special Gods that they worship – one for each month – as well their own language, justice system and currency. Year 6 also planned out a Chakra garden for the Onca tribe and deigned a celebratory costume that they printed the fabric for using batik and inks.

In maths, the children have practised their written methods for the four operations, practised the bar model and ordered, simplified and completed calculations with fractions. They’ve learnt about unconditional love that God has for us and the commitment required by a man when becoming a priest. They’ve even planned and delivered a thoughtful collective worship for their parents about love.

In the last few weeks of this term, the children have read, discussed and written about Matt Haig’s, “A Boy Called Christmas”, solved Christmas-themed logic problems and read traditional Christmas poems. They’ve learnt about the expectations on us all during Advent and considered how they can really prepare themselves for His coming.

It has certainly been a busy but successful term. Have a fantastic holiday break – you deserve it! Merry Christmas Year 6!
