Welcome to Year 6

This year, each class is named after an animal.

Our curriculum:

Autumn 1

This half term our first science topic is evolution: this covers extinct and endangered animals, as well as learning about how animals adapt to their environments, leading to evolution in the long term.  

Also in this half term, we will be understanding how living things (plants and animals) are classified and the reasons for this. 

 

Our PE is focusing on dance (indoor) and hockey (outdoor).

It is vitally important that your child reads at home as well as at school. The expectations are that your child reads AT LEAST 3 times a week at home. Reading books can be handed in on any day to be changed, but they MUST be handed in on a MONDAY, along with their reading records. These books need to have been signed by an adult.

 



Homework is an extremely important part of your child’s learning and specifically in Year 6, as it prepares them for the expectations of High School.

Homework is given out every Friday and MUST be returned to school NO LATER than the following WEDNESDAY.

The homework will be a Learning Log task based on the termly topic, as well as a piece of work for both Maths and Literacy.

 


                        

Along with their homework every Friday, children will also be given a list of spellings to learn and a times table sheet to help them practise.  

Spellings and times tables will be tested the following WEDNESDAY.
