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

I hope you've enjoyed a fun summer and are now ready for the challenges of Year 6? We've got some great events lined up for the Autumn term as well as a range of interesting subjects to study. In Year 6 this term there will be a big push on reading for pleasure, the children have been given reading record books to record their reading progress.

Intially in Literacy, we'll be looking at an old Roald Dahl story from Tales of the Unexpected ( a little different to Charlie and the Chocolate factory or the Twits). This will be followed by a study of a childrens' book called 'Clockwork' by Phillip Pullman - a mechanical and mysterious tale set in the deep winter snow of old Germany. 

In Maths, the class will be studying place value, addition and subtraction before moving onto long multiplication and division. Weekly homework will re-enforce their knowledge and understanding of these topics.

Additionally, year 6 will be focusing at Charles Darwin and his scientific discoveries, using maps to plan out his famous travels around the globe.

Events to look forward to this term include a visit to the New Vic theatre and the Year 6 Bikeability course in November.

Mrs Hayes will take the class on a Tuesday, she will be focusing on grammar, spelling and reading skills aswell as French in the afternoon. Throughout the term year 6 will continue to have drumming lessons with Mr Proctor every Thursday morning.

As always, there will be a number of rotated 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.

If you have any questions regarding year 6 please see me before or after school. Alternatively email me at deputy@highfieldsnantwich.cheshire.sch.uk
