Welcome to Year 6

Year 6 is an important year - your final chance to shine in primary school; there will be lots of hard work but lots of fun along the way. You have already been split into English and maths groups, this will help you focus and achieve your very best as well as building your independence ready for secondary school. 

Some of the areas we will be looking at this term are:

  • Liverpool's link to Slave Trade including Black Lives Matter 
  • South America - focus on the Amazon
  • Circulatory System
  • Genres of writing - diary extracts, poetry and biographical writing
  • Maths - place value, four operations and fractions - all topics will include elements of problem solving and reasoning
  • PE- dance

You can research these at home and tweet anything you find out.
