Year 6

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 exploring natural disasters including volcanoes and earthquakes. We will also be exploring earth and space in science and using our knowledge during space week. As well as this, we will be researching blow painting artists in order to replicate their style in volcanic art.

In English, we are using a new approach to teaching called Talk 4 Writing. To begin, we will be writing a danger story and then move onto non chronological reports. We are looking forward to sharing our new learning with you through Class Dojo.

In Maths for the Autumn Term we will cover position and direction, place value, addition and subtraction.

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.



Kind Regards,

Homework grids will be in books in the first week of each half term. I will collect homework books on a Monday to be marked.

To keep headlice under control, remember… once a week, take a peek!

It is really important to check for lice weekly, even if you do not think your child has them. If you do find headlice, please treat immediately and notify a member of staff so that other parents can be made aware. If your child has long hair, tying it up might reduce their chances of catching them.
