Year 6: final frontier

These are the voyages of an intrepid group of children

It's their one year mission to explore new topics

To seek out new life and to learn about new civilisations

To boldly go where no class has gone before!



Welcome to Year 6

The second half of the Autumn term is going to be busy!  Year 6 have settled down into their new classroom and are now using their brand new interactive board. Booster seesions will be starting on the 14th November (8.15 club) and there is a positive 'buzz' in the classroom

This half term the class will be reading a mysterious and ancient story called 'Wolf Brother' by Michelle Paver. All of their writing will be based upon this book. In maths, we will building upon last half term's work and moving on to studying Decimals, Fractions and Percentages. In science the class will be concentrating on Darwin theory and how this idea shapes our view of evolution. In addition, year 6 will be having drumming lessons with Mr Proctor every Thursday morning and Mr Gibbons will be taking them for Gymnastics on a Wednesday afternoon.

Mrs Hayes takes the class on a Tuesday, she will be focusing on grammar, spelling and reading skills aswell as French in the afternoon.

As always, there will be a number of jobs and responsibilities for children in year 6 such as collecting snack money or assembly duty. Homework is given out on a Friday and collected in the following Wednesday. PE kits need to be in school for the entire week.
