Welcome to the Year 6 class page! As always, the Autumn term promises to be a very busy. Our topic is Cryptids and much of our writing and Science will be based upon it – for more details see the Year 6 curriculum overview.
We’ll start the term building on everything the children learnt during last year’s Art of Brilliance project. Year 6 pupils will be delivering a series of assemblies to other year groups every three weeks throughout the school year designed to promote a positive approach to life and learning. First though we’ll work on ensuring everyone in Year 6 has the kind of growth mindset needed to inspire the rest of the school to follow their example!
We’ll also be reading Holes by Louis Sachar as our class novel. Holes is a ‘hilarious and powerful story about crime, punishment and redemption’ and I’m confident the children will really enjoy it. In Maths we’ll be reading, writing, comparing and ordering numbers to ten million; multiplying and dividing two digit numbers and solving some challenging word problems.
PE will be on Thursdays and Home Learning will be set and tested on Fridays – more details to follow on the new arrangements for this.
