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 we will be developing our skills as a geographer by beginning our road trip around the USA, which we will dip in and out of throughout the year. We will also be exploring evolution and inheritance in science, and researching the artist Banksy in order to replicate his style.
In English, we are writing formal letters based on our ‘Wonder’ whole class book. We will then move onto writing and designing our own leaflets to advertise New York City.
In Maths for the Autumn Term we will cover position and direction, place value, addition and subtraction.
