Year 6

Summer Term

 

We hope that everybody had a lovely break over Easter, spending time with their families, trying to get outside (when it wasn’t raining) and eating lots of Easter Eggs! We have a very busy half term coming up so we hope that all of the children are rested, relaxed and ready to hit the ground running.

 

This Half Term, our topic is a geography-based programme of study called ‘Together We Can’. We will be exploring world geography, across all of the continents, before refining our research closer to home and looking at UK geography. Maths and English sessions will allow us to cover some areas we have yet to explore and revise, in-depth, the Year 6 curriculum that we have covered already this year.

 

PE sessions will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Some children will also be swimming on a Wednesday afternoon.

 

We expect the children to continue with reading at least 4 times a week, if not every day! The children are aware of what they are required to record in their Home School Contact Books. We do ask, however, that you supervise their entries in the Contact Book and, if you hear them read, that you initial this.

 

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to write in their Home School Books or pop in for a chat. We will more than happy to make an appointment to discuss anything.

 

As you are probably aware, this half term is the run up to SATS week (May14th-17th) and we want the children to be as focused and prepared as possible. They have done plenty of preparation already and should see this week as an opportunity for showing off their skills and not be something to worry or feel concerned about at all.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Happy New Year!

 

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all children, family and friends of Year 6 a very Happy New Year. We hope that you had a lovely Christmas and that the children are now refreshed and ready to hit the ground running in 2018.

 

This Half Term, our Topic is based on the book 'Skellig'. We will be reading the book and doing reading and writing tasks based around this story. In Maths, we will be covering decimals, percentages, some shape work and revising Number work from last term. We will be basing some art work around our topic, looking specifically at different animals.

 

PE sessions will be on Tuesday mornings with Mr Parsons and Thursdays with Mrs Williams. Some children will also be swimming on a Wednesday afternoon.

 

We expect the children to continue with reading at least 4 times a week, if not every day! The children are aware of what they are required to record in their Home School Contact Books.

 

Any questions or queries please do not hesitate to write in their Home School Books or pop in for a chat. We will more than happy to make an appointment to discuss any queries.

 

We are looking forward to the Pantomime which is on Thursday, 11th January (OH YES IT IS).

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn Term!

 

Last Half Term everybody settled into Year 6 extremely well and we had great fun exploring the 'Out of this World' Topic. The exhibition at the end of the Topic was absolutely incredible and we really enjoyed sharing all of the hard work that the children had put into this.

 

This Half Term, our Topic is 'Has there ever been a better time to live?'. We will be taking a trip back in time and investigating, researching and questioning people on their experiences in different decades. The children will be asking lots of questions to people of different ages, so expect them to ask you about you childhood, from whichever decade that may be. If there is anybody who was born in the 1950s and enjoyed their childhood in the 1960s and would be willing to pop into school to share their experience, please could you make Mr Foster or Miss Clarke aware.

 

PE sessions will be on Tuesday mornings with Mr Parsons and Thursdays with Mrs Williams.

 

We expect the children to continue with reading at least 4 times a week, if not every day! The children are aware of what they are required to record in their Home School Contact Books.

 

Any questions or queries please do not hesitate to write in their Home School Books or pop in for a chat. We will more than happy to make an appointment to discuss any queries.

 

The date of this year's Carol Service at Wellington Baptist Church is Thursday 7th December.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

Hello and welcome to the Year 6 Akela and Bagheera class page. This page is designed to share any news or events that the children are taking part in, as well as an opportunity to share children's achievements. Year 6 is a year with challenges and responsibilities, as well as excitement and enjoyment - we expect all children just to do their best!

 

PE will be on a Tuesday morning with Mr Parsons. Swimming will take place on Wednesday afternoons in the first half terms of Autumn, Spring and Summer for those children who have not yet graduated from Swim School. Any children that have will be taking part in a PE session.

 

We expect the children to be reading at least 4 times a week, if not every day. Our aim is that children will find a love of reading which will broaden their imagination and challenge their thinking as well as vocabulary! The children are aware of what they are required to record in their Home School Contact Books.

 

Our topic for this half term is ‘Out of this World – What’s out there?’ and will involve research and investigations about space. We are very happy to inform you that we have a Planetarium in school for Year 6 on September 14th which will be a great way to learn about our topic.

 

Any questions or queries please do not hesitate to write in their Home School Books or pop in for a chat. We will more than happy to make an appointment to discuss any queries.

 

Miss Clarke and Mr Foster

 

Please note our Parent Information Meeting will be taking place at 3:20pm on Wednesday 13th September. We would recommend attending this meeting in order to gather as much information about Year 6 as you can.
