Believe and Achieve

Year 6

If you believe in yourself, you will achieve incredible things!

In Year 6 our teacher is Miss Henry and our fantastic teaching assistants are Miss Clemmons and Miss Waters. In Class 6, we know that it is OK to make mistakes, as this is how we learn and find out new things. Miss Henry, Miss Clemmons and Miss Waters believe in each and every one of us, and are always encouraging us to be the best that we can be!

As well as working extremely hard in all that we do, we have lots of fun in our lessons! This year we are really excited to have even more fantastic experiences. We are looking forward to more exciting Science experiments, lots of outdoor learning opportunities to inspire our writing and attending sports competitions!

How your child is learning at home is very important to me. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to email the School, and I can help you as best I can!
Miss Henry 🙂

Literacy

In our Writing we will be looking at a range of different text types. Our focus for September is Autobiography writing. Keep an eye on our page for some updates on how this is going! :)

As well as being fantastic writers, we are also enthusiastic readers in Year 6. As well as reading at home, we have a class novel each half term, which Miss Henry reads to us as a whole class. We try to spend some time each day reading this book!

 

 

Topic News

We visited Eden Camp for our hook into our new topic, which was a brilliant day! We had some mixed emotions while we were there, because some of the huts were quite upsetting! Overall, we found it very interesting and had lots of questions when we got back to school. After sharing all of our questions about WW2, we came up with one focus question, which we hope to find the answers to as we begin to explore our topic!

Who was Hitler and what was he responsible for?

 

Stay tuned for some of our fabulous work.

 

Maths

We absolutely LOVE our Maths lessons in Year 6. We have lots of opportunities to use concrete resources to help us to deepen our understanding of mathematical concepts, and like to represent things in different ways to show our understanding.

For the next 3 weeks we are focusing on the four operations, and mastering our fluency in using these methods. We will then look into problem solving and reasoning type questions, in order to apply our skills and understanding.

 

Homework

 

  • Homework is given out on a Thursday and is due in on Tuesday. This is a mixture of all our subjects - not just Maths and English
  • Reading at home should be done at least 3 times per week. Reading Records will be checked on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at school. If you don't have it, you will read at break time!
  • For each Topic there will be a home project to be completed - WATCH THIS SPACE! :)
