A big hello to you all and welcome to Year 6. We are looking forward to a really busy and exciting year with lots of amazing learning already planned. The classroom door will be open at 8.55am and school will begin at 9.00am please ensure your children are arriving on time for school every day.
This half term our main topic is ‘Raging River’ where we will be learning about the physical geography of rivers and the water cycle. We will be visiting Bolton Abbey to conduct a river study and following this up with a visit from a Civil Engineer to help us unpick the links between physical and human geography of an area.
In literacy, we will be exploring descriptive language; narratives and recounts. As a school we will be continuing to focus on spelling through a daily lesson. Children will receive their new spellings on Friday. They will be tested the following Friday. Their spellings will have been learnt during the week so the children should be familiar with the rule.
In Maths for the Autumn Term, we are starting our learning using a research project of inspiration lessons. These build life-long thinking and group work skills which will be used across the curriculum. The rest of the half term will follow the curriculum to cover Place Value, Addition and Subtraction and Statistics.
We will be more than happy to see you at 8.55am or 3.30pm if there are any concerns in school that you wish to discuss.
