Welcome to Year 6.

Your final adventure of primary school begins here!

What to expect during Autumn Term

This term in Year 6, we will be looking at lots of new content in our lessons - we hope you are ready for the challenge!

During our English lessons, we will cover the following genres of text - biographies (Charles Dickens), film narrative (Alchemist's Letter), Imagery in poems (The Dreadful Menace) and narrative writing along with specific lessons for spelling, grammar, punctuation and reading. 

In maths we will be focusing on place value and the number system, problem solving including all four operations, geometry and fractions – our best piece of advice is learn your times tables!

Our afternoon lessons will be focussed on the Amazon in geography, history of the Maya civilisation, and collage in art with a focus on Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes. In science we will be looking at living things and their habitats, and animals including humans. As well as collective worship and Monday afternoons with Rev. Gill, we will be looking at journeys, how Christians prepare for Christmas and the Eucharist. We will also be keeping busy with French lessons, DT, PE, PSHE and computing.

You have a busy year ahead of you – let’s enjoy it!
