Hello and welcome to Year 6!

 

Welcome back - we hope you had a great break!

We have lots of learning opportunities this term and will be working hard in preparation for our SAT's. 

There are lots of things that you can do to help at home. Use the Useful Websites list to find links to places that may help. Click here to find a new resource which has lots of support materials that you can use at home:

 

Compare 4 kids

Here are some important pieces of infomation that you may find useful:

 

PE:Year 6 PE days are on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has their kit (including a change of footwear) in school on these days. PE is a vital part of the curriculum in which all children should be participating.

 

Homework:Homework is usually set on Fridays and is expected to be returned by the following Thursday. As we get nearer to SATs week, you will find that homework is given more often. Please encourage and support your child to complete and return their homework on time. Children should also be regularly practising times tables, spelling and reading. Check the Files to download section below for a link to useful websites that will support homework as well as spelling lists for Y6.

 

Curriculum:For our main topic this half term, we will be studying a history of slavery and focussing on civil rights in America. We will be exploring the journey of a slave, what life was like on a plantation and the conditions in which they lived. We will also look at the Civil Rights act in America and how slavery was abolished.

Our science topic covers Light and Sight and Electricity. The children will be learning about electrical circuits and the symbols that are used to represent electrical components.
